Just My Opinion...

I read a lot of baby blogs to get ideas about new products and great deals on baby things. I thought it was ironic that after my post on the things I can't live without as a mother that one of the blogs I follow listed the "Top 10 Most Worthless Baby Items". And guess what?? Six of my favorite things are on their top 10 most worthless list! It just goes to show that everyone sees things differently.

I still plan on giving my own list at some other point (and post) in time but for now I'll just tell you their list vs. mine. Here's theirs:

Top 10 Most Worthless Baby Items

#10 Diaper Pail (Genie and Champ)
#9 Shopping Cart Cover
#8 Boppy Nursing Pillow
#7 Infant Shoes
#6 Hanging Diaper Stacker
#5 Bumbo Baby Seat
#4 Baby Robe
#3 Crib Bedding Set with Bumpers and Quilts
#2 Wipe Warmer

And the most useless thing of all?
#1 Bottle Warmer

And here's mine:

Things I LOVE (in no particular order)
#1 Diaper Champ
#2 Shopping Cart Cover
#3 Boppy Nursing Pillow

#4 Hanging Diaper Stacker
#5 Bumbo Baby Seat
#6 Crib Bedding Set with Bumpers and Quilts

But that's just my opinion....

#1 Boppy Changing Pad Liners
#2 Sassy Powdered Formula Dispenser
#3 Wipes Warmer
#4 Diaper Genie
#5 Bottle Warmer
#6 Baby Auto Mirror

... I'll have to think about the rest. It is very funny how differently we all view things. Fun!

That is so funny! :)

I guess it is relative...

I LOVE shopping cart covers (I'm a germaphobe). And I have used and enjoyed the Boppy. My babies always wear shoes, mostly Pediped. Michael loves baby robes - he thinks they look like tiny boxers "Rockyesque". :)

I breastfed and didn't need a bottle warmer. Also we cloth diaper so I never needed a genie. Never used a crib since we cosleep.

It is hilarious (and a little rude) that they posted some of the most well used items that actually serve a purpose. Seriouslt, how can you warm formula with no warmer? And do you really want your house to stink like baby poo with no diaper can?

I wonder who they polled?! It knid of reminds me of political opinion polls. :)

umm i'm not sure where they did their research but, maybe they aren't a parent so that's why the list doestn't seem accurate.

I happen to like all of the things they didn't!! I like your list better!
