Re: Best inventions EVER for babies/children

The nosefrida has a little sponge in it, but the tube is so long that I've never even gotten snot up to the sponge part.
I'd add the miracle blanket swaddler. I didn't see them until it was too late for us, but next time I'm totally trying it.

I have to agree with the Nosefrida. That thing is amazing!

That's what I was wondering!!! EEEW! It really does look in the pics like the dad is drinking the kid's snot. I'm not even generally grossed out by that stuff... but the pic.... EEK! LOL

Glad to hear you don't actually eat the kid's boogers.

So, to me, the mesh feeder thing was the best thing ever.

I loved that before my kids could eat hard foods, they could gum fruits/veggies w/o the risk of choking.

Books with tear-resistant pages. I've only found one publisher who does them (Meadowside Children's Books "Books for life"), but luckily the books are fun.

And on that note, classic books, or books for slightly older children (Olivia, etc) in boardbook version (Jammy's favourite is Madeline, and she "reads" it to herself)

A&A blankets. The only way I could get dS2 to sleep until he was about 9 months old! The larger swaddlers (not the target ones) are what I give at showers now!
Also the boys home medics sound machine, they cannot sleep without it.

Re: Best inventions EVER for babies/children

The booger sucker looks disgusting. I can't bring myself to try it.

Can I add a plaything, or do you only want essential type stuff? Because we totally wikki stix! http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000GL1DJ0/ref=nosim/chrisficti-20 My kids can entertain themselves for HOURS quietly. And they last and last, and are cheap. Did I mention I these? And sorry if everybody else already knows about them, but I just found them a year or so ago.

Re: Best inventions EVER for babies/children

You ladies have all added great things to the list. . . thanks for sharing! I have to admit, I laughed a bit when I first saw that nose sucker thing until someone explained it, but now it sounds pretty cool! Well, as cool as a tool to suck out snot can be, anyway. :-) And Jen, Wikki sticks are great, too, thanks for adding them. I didn't find out about them until recently either.
