5 Grossest Baby Products

By Nichole |

When I think of babies, my mind immediately conjures up memories of when my children were tiny…their soft skin, sweet smell, and new baby warmth.

I think that I’ve repressed some of the less-wonderful things about babies.

Because, in all honesty, babies can be gross.

And caring for them can be even grosser.

I’m put together a list of the 5 most disgusting things that you might want to grab before your baby arrives.

To see the absolute grossest product I’ve ever come across, come visit in these small moments, where I’ve written about it today.

5 Grossest Baby Products

Diaper Pail

You will likely need one of these, as they are simply a necessary evil. No matter what you do, it will just stink.

If you can think of any other gross products to add to the list, I’d love to hear about them!

    There certainly is a lot of gross that goes with babies…and nobody tells you.

  2. Rachel {at} Mommy Needs a Vacation says:

    DUDE! We had to use one of those Fleet things on Sadie before!!!

    what about the school of thought that the nose-suckers are actually a bad idea (boogers and germs get sucked out but RARELY cleaned out and then just stuck back up the nose the next time it’s used)? Just asking if anyone else has been told this by their doc….

  4. Deirdre says:

    I think the grossest for us is lactulose. Our son has problems with constipation and this stuff gives him diarrhea so he can go to the bathroom. It’s usually explosive if he gets a little too much and it oozes out the side. Ah, the joys of parenthood. :)

  5. Courtnay says:

    we have an ear thermometer. no rectal needed. that just seems cruel to everyone involved.

  6. snakecharmer says:

    We had an ear/forehead thermometer…but they still say that the rectal thermometer gives the most accurate readings in infants so I still had one on hand if my daughter suddenly spiked a fever and I needed to have an accurate temperature.

  7. Katie says:

    Our pediatrician says that the Exergen forehead one is accurate enough…two seconds and done…so worth the money!

  8. Heather says:

    I was looking for a nasal aspirator and came across the NoseFrieda. The concept of it totally grosses me out, though I’ve read EXCELLENT reviews regarding it’s effectiveness. They say it works better than the battery-operated ones, but I just couldn’t get over literally sucking the boogers out of my baby’s nose!
