useless

What baby stuff do you have but really didn't end up using or was useless

Re: useless

  • With my girls the swing was useless, they hated it. This time around I haven't really bought anything that I wouldn't use. But if I had to pick one thing. It would be the pacifiers I got. So far he has no desire to use them. I can sometimes use them to help get him to sleep but he generally spits them out immediately.




     

  • Diaper warmer hands down even though I really wanted it.

  • I got a sh!t ton of blankets that we'll never use. I mean seriously 1-2, maybe 3 but 10 baby blankets?!?!

    A ton of side snap tshirts. Shes never wore them. I don't know why people insisted on buying me 1,000. Also the wipes warmer. I use it but it's pointless. The wipes stay warm for a whole 3 seconds.

  • PnP. She hates it. I'm hoping she eventually gets some use out of it.

  • Swing for sure! LO never lasted more than a few minutes in it. He hates it.

  • Funny to see the swing mentioned multiple times as ours is worth it's weight in gold.

    We received waaaay too many blankets. We probably use the same 2 or 3 and the rest have gone untouched. I also have yet to use any of the gazillion breast pads I registered for, but that's because I almost never leak, and there's no way I would have known that ahead of time. I also ended up donating a lot of clothes. I'm not a fan of the ones with cutesy phrases on them like "Mommy's little ______."

    Unless your baby has reflux... We go through so many receiving blankets a day.

  • I love our wipe warmer. I could do with out the swing though. She cries every time we put her in it. We just got a momma roo, can't wait to see how that works out!

  • I like lightweight blankets and wish I had another 1-2 Aden + Anais ones. The most useless gift we've received was a large ornate snow globe.  It was a very touching thought but it had to go into storage because we live in a small condo.

  • Wipe warmer was awesome for my ds who was a winter baby! Swing was hated by both kids, too many dang blankets! Bumbo, arm rattles

  • Bottle warmer. It doesn't work right and it's faster to let the bottle sit in hot water for a few minutes than to try the bottle warmer. But now my baby refuses bottles altogether, so it doesn't matter anyway.

    Also, the vibrating bouncer seat. She hates it.

    I also have never got the hang of my nursing cover and find it much easier to just throw a receiving blanket over us.

    Lastly, clothes size 3 months. We got a shiit ton of that size.

    Clothing in small sizes. C is very long and already wear mostly 3-6 months and 6 months. We also got a load of blankets, and I exchanged a bunch of them for bigger clothing.

  • Newborn onesies. He stayed in sleepers most of the time because he got too cold with the AC on. He has a ton he never wore or only wore once.

    Flannel receiving blankets. We could only use them for swaddling for about a week.

    Baby shoes. Why? Just why?!?

  • I would have to say pacifiers and blankets. We received so many pacifiers and we have about 30 yes 30 different blankets and there not the small receiving kind these are all huge fluffy fleece blankets that take up a lot of space.
  • Definitely receiving blankets. Was never able to swaddle with them and now they are burp cloths or sheet savers... Newborn clothes. She grew out of them in a few weeks time and was living in sleep and plays anyway.
  • Onesies before baby is mobile ...my husband refuses to snap them up and the baby is getting too long for them before he outgrows them otherwise.

    Flannel receiving blankets ...too small for swaddling.

    Luckily I can sew, so too short onesies are becoming tshirts and too small receiving blankets are Pajama pants.

  • Hmm... My baby must be very peculiar because she absolutely loves her swing, she will take 3 hour naps in there everyday but it is the kind where they are almost Laying down. She loves her vibrating bouncy seat, although she won't tolerate it as long as the swing . She loves her binky she very rarely won't take it. I agree the wipe warmer is useless. Also newborn cutesy outfits , the onesies are great she is still in newborn onesies and she is 11 weeks , but the uncomfortable cutesy outfits drive me nuts !

    Those swaddle things.  DS hated them.  We used a blanket and it worked just fine

    Us, too.  She didn't like the swing at first, but it has been a life saver.  She naps in it all the time. 

    We just have too much clothing.  Honestly.  Maybe it will change when I go back to work, but staying on top of laundry now is pretty easy--we don't need 20 onesies, no matter how cute.

     LO doesn't like the Moby or the Maya.  I might not buy another til we try it out (hopefully borrow from a friend).

  • LO hates our vibrating bouncy chair as much as DS. That would be our useless. That and baby shoes. They will not stay on her feet, and even if they did, they would still be useless. Add 80% of the socks we own as well.

     Our swing is the holy grail of nap time. We could not live without it.

     My LO doesn't have reflux and we still go through min. 3 of them a day. We use them as burp clothes. Lay them under her etc. She spits up on them all the time when we're burping.
