what was one thing you bought for your LO that was a waste of money?

what was one thing you bought for your LO that was a waste of money? for us, there were several things... baby bumbo, the swing, the soothing motions glider....

the point of this thread is not to slam these products, as each kid is different.... and what doesn't work for one kid may be ideal for the next.

i'm just curious to find out what others thought would be the BEST PRODUCT IN THE WORLD and then it turned out to be a waste of money for their LO.... (but then if your next kid LOVED it, be sure to tell us that too!)

Bouncy seats and swings... DS hated both.

But now DD loves them... so I'm glad we didn't give them away.

We didn't use the crib until DS was almost 2, but man, we love it now!! He knows--in that crib, go to sleep--you can't get out anyway. He does really well with bed time knowing he has limits. I can't imagine if he was in a toddler bed.

But we love that our crib has smooth slats... if he could get ANY leverage w/ his feet, he'd climb out.

Tummy time mat

Butterfly Beco -- I couldn't get the Beco to fit comfortable so we never used it only tried it on around the house and now I can't seem to sell it

Clothes -- I tend to buy to much and half of the stuff she out grew before she ever even wore it.

Our swing was a total waste - Josephine hated it! We have it packed away in hopes that we will use it with our next one.

Travel system, baby bathtub, changing table, crib, bouncer, playpen, jumperoo, Snugli, Gymini...oohhh, so much stuff! Thankfully, we didn't buy most of it and what we did buy was cheap.
