Last week I wrote a post titled “8 Baby Products I Can’t Believe We Wasted Money On” and the response I got — you would assume I had written some post bashing every parent on the planet. I was not prepared for some of the comments telling me that I was putting my kids in danger, that they felt sorry for my husband (ps, we have a great intimate life even though we still co-sleep with our youngest), that I must be some young kid who has no idea what I was talking about. It was, well, interesting.
I thought I had made it clear in my post that these products were a waste of money for us. I am not clueless and totally get that not everyone co-sleeps (though I do believe everyone should) and wasn’t saying that no one should ever buy these products. I was just mentioning that after having three children, those essential items were a total waste of money — for us. You know, offering a different perspective, not suggesting that these products never be bought or sold ever again.
I know that I am not the only parent who bought into the ‘essential list’ and later found that some of those products just didn’t work for us, so we asked you.
