Bringing up a child can be a nightmare in a less-than-hygienic world, but at what point does cleanliness and safety consciousness transcend the boundaries of sanity?
1. Toad stool:
Your child will definitely find this baby product hilarious. You can put everything within reach for your little ones on this frog-theme stool. When your child steps or sits on the stool, it croaks. Teeth brushing time will become a little more fun when your child steps on this stool. [ via: kids learning depot ]
2. Potty Mitts:
Have a phobia that your children might catch diseases from unknown sources in public places? Baby products like water-resistant Potty Mitts are sure to change your life and your outlook.
In addition to keeping your kids free of germs, these revolutionary disposable gloves are small enough to fit into a handbag or diaper bag. A must for those visiting less-than-clean environs, but make sure you don’t flush them down the toilet; they’re not flush-able. [ via: tudys ]
3. Poop Scoop Bag:
One for really hard-core greenies in keeping with current trends to cut down waste and keep in tune with natural rhythms. The idea is to monitor Baby’s bowel movements, and, instead of clothing them in diapers, let them do their thing whenever and wherever they please.
The trick is to always have your 100% bio-degradable ‘baby poop scoop’ bag at hand to ensure their waste doesn’t become the planet’s. [ via: freddysays ]

5. Pee Pee Bottle:
This baby product is an ingenious solution for those frequent tight moments when you’re nowhere near a toilet or natural spot, My Pee Pee bottle is as effective for adults as it is for children when it comes to needing a compact, portable space to relieve yourself.
Designed to replace public toilet seat covers, it is leak- and odour-proof and great if you’re on the move, but critics point out that, though it comes in pink and blue, its lack of transparency could detract from its functionality.

6. Baby knee pads:
Here’s an easy way to keep your baby happy while crawling. Your baby will never suffer from grazed, bruised, red and sore knees with these knee pads. There is no need to worry on which floor your baby is crawling inside or outside.

7. Thudguard Helmet:
A UK-derived safety device to help cushion your toddler from banging their head too hard when they fall or collide, the Thudguard helmet may be taking safety too far.

8. Shampoo Hat:
A fun, feminine derivative of an adult shower cap, this frilly crown baby product is an excellent way to keep soapsuds and shampoo out and your baby’s humor intact if she/he doesn’t like getting her/his head wet.

9. Baby Snot Sucker:
As clinically correct as the country which spawned it, this Swedish nasal device is possibly the snottiest invention you will ever come across. A cross between a tube and a straw, the Nosefrida is a bizarre way of ensuring Baby’s excess mucus does not choke or suffocate.
A long, flexible tube with a mouthpiece on the parent’s end and a nostril sucker on the baby’s end, the Nosefrida introduces a whole new concept to child care: nose to mouth resuscitation. Lest you are worried that you’ll ingest the baby’s snot, the developers have thought of everything.

The attention your child receives makes him/her keep going back for more. [ via: pottysong ]
