Crazy Baby STUFF

I am overwhelmed and amused by the amount of stuff marketed to new parents these days.<br>
And the marketing tactics are outrageous!<br><br>
Some of the more interesting ones to me are:<br>
3-D ultrasounds: the local imaging place promises to help "create that bond with your baby that much sooner".<br><br><a href="" target="_blank">baby plus education system</a>: promises to "give your baby a head start" and do everything from make birth easier to have her memorizing all the digits of pi before she comes out of the womb<br><br>
then of course there's the $800 bedding set that includes a bumper and blanket you're advised not to use in infancy, a sheet the baby is going to poop on and a bed skirt that might or might not work with your crib<br><br>
What are some of your favorites?<br><br><br><br><span style="font-size:small;">(I'm not knocking these things, and they may really work or be valued by some people. But the claims are broad.)</span>

SO I suppose that day I sent my kids to the "moon" in bike helmets, foil vests and a pair of plastic milk jugs smashed onto their shoes ("moon boots"<img alt="wink.gif" src=""> wasn't really worth much? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""> DD still remembers that - they got under the kitchen table and she tucked a stirng acorss the "door" and off they went.. and landed on the moon with aliens and everything.<br>
Ultimately kids need spoons, pans, bowls and cardboard boxes ... and involved parents to learn!
