I get frustrated because as soon as you buy something for your baby, they come out with something that is more convenient and more of what you really need. It is a never ending cycle!

I get frustrated with our infant swing. It seems to be made for an older baby, because our 6 week old always seems to lean forward and fall asleep with her nose smashed up against the tray.

I'm frustrated with the constant recalls of baby products. Don't they test them sufficiently BEFORE they go on the market? It's hard to keep up sometimes with the recalls.

I get frustrated when toys and play centers are too short-lived and outgrown before they've really even been used because of their limited appeal.

The loads of recalls and safety concerns. If things are so much more advanced now compaired to 30 years ago why cant they get it right the first time?

cdziuba said...

cdziuba@aol.com I can't stand plastic things for the baby any more. I'm trying to be complete eco-conscious in all my decisions, and hate plastic toys, especially those with lots of parts and pieces. I am equally frustrated with uncomfortable carseats.

I am frustrated by how they change what is best for your baby. For example, walkers were used when we were kids and now they are considered so dangerous. Also, right after my son was born, bpa was determined to be bad so now all my bottles need to be replaced for my next baby!

Anonymous said...

I get frustrated buying stuff for my baby that I never even use because my daughter either hates them or it's just easier to do without them. examples: bottles, pacifiers, diaper holder, hooded towels, baby monitor, etc.....

I don't like having to deal with recalls - why can't they just make them right the first time? Also, buying things you think you need and then never use - like bottle-feeding equipment when breastfeeding. fulfam@hotmail.com

I get frustrated that there aren't more toys that are made to grow with the baby. I like to see a toy where a baby is playing and then a one year old is playing, too. Perfect for siblings as well.

I think one of my main frustrations with baby gear is when you get new stuff and the baby just throws up on it- they are too hard to wash and too bulky.

Baby toys are the most frustrating!
First of all, you have to pick out a toy out of the insanely enormous selections out there.
Second, whatever you do buy, you can be sure that that toy is not getting out of the package easily! You are gonna need special baby toy package cutters! (Companies have a gizmo for everything now!)
Third, after all this, you gotta make sure that your child really does like it, and it is not just wasted money!
Last- There will be a new, really cool toy out in a few weeks to make your last toy look pathetic.

BATTERIES. I'm so frustrated that everything takes batteries and eats them so quickly that the sound or lights or whatever gets all warped or doesn't work.

Everything should plug in. Particularly big things like swings or bouncy seats. Batteries are so annoying and expensive!

So, there are a couple of things I dislike about baby gadgets...

a) figuring out how to assemble them
b) once they are assembled, figuring out how they actually work.
c) most larger baby gadgets are rarely portable.

Thanks for the contest!

If something isn''t on the recall list it's on the "sit inthe corner and collect dust" list. Can we get some quality made great products?

Awesome giveaway, new baby in December! :)

I get frustrated by all the baby gadgets that take batteries and drain the juice from said batteries like vampire bats sucking blood! I can remember feeding the "Dracula" baby monitors almost weekly when my daughter was younger.

ErinJeany said...

My frustration with baby gizmos is that everything is made too cheaply these days! {and expensive} When we were kids my mom and aunt used the same things on 5 of us! I am having trouble with things lasting through ONE baby!

This seat is so awesome! I would love to win the brown one! I need to share this with my readers! I'm sure more people would love to hear about it!

Thanks for the entry! :)

What I find frustrating is the multitude of gadgets out there that parents could do without. Things like a pacifier holder. I think its a great gadget and useful, but that mean that half the new parents using this don't even remember to wash and sterilize the pacifier because it never hits the ground? Just a thought.
