Any warnings for terrible baby products?

Did you buy any baby stuff that was a total waste of money in your opinion? What was it, why did it suck? Thanks =)

  • I didn't find our diaper genie very useful. My sister warned me that I wouldn't but I didn't listen. I just never found myself changing the baby upstairs (where we had the changing table) so I did not get much use out of it.

  • wipe warmer, my mil bought it for us, and by the time i got the wipe to the baby not 6inchs away its cold, better buy the plastic tubs the wipes come in

  • a changing table. It sat in the corner by the stairs and collected things but nothing baby wise. I changed my baby in what ever room we were in.

  • I agree with the diaper wipe warmer. All it does is dry them out. I also got a few sleep positioners from my sister that we never used.

  • sleep positioners ere absolutely useless.. we got a changing table that had drawers and converts to a dresser so that solved the changing table dilemma.
    Pampers Baby Dry diapers are poor quality and not at all absorbent.. and I'm a pampers fan!! Love the swaddlers and cruisers but don't bother with the baby dry ones,luvs are better!
    Never had a bottle or wipes warmer so to me those are useless too.

  • The sleep positioner is bullshit, really. One, it's not recommended because of the risk of SIDS...which sucks because I got one at my baby shower. (why sell them if they're a huge risk?!) Two, every time I even attempted to use it with my daughter, she slid down in between the wedges and I freaked out because I thought she would suffocate.
