The baby net/cocoon/pod/wrap
Aside from looking ridiculous, can this be really comfortable for a baby? I realize that these items are used primarily for "photo ops." No normal person would use one of these for any practical reason. Ok. But WHY use it at all? I cringe every time I see a poor baby crammed into one of these damnable fishnets. The one pictured above is probably one of the worst offenders I've seen because it uses extremely thin yarn made out of silk and mohair. I'm a 40-year-old, time-hardened adult and the thought of being nude while enveloped in a stringy, mohair net is making my blood curdle.
Personally I feel that anyone who uses these to take pictures of their newborns must have graduated from the Michael Jackson Baby Handling Institute. More atrocities against babies:
That CANNOT be comfortable on this poor kid's thighs. "We're new parents and it's Christmas, so here's the perfect photo of our baby in a hobo sling covered in fake snow! You're welcome!"
Yeah, this looks totally safe. "Hey! Great idea! Let's hang our baby in a goofy, holey hammock from the tiniest, and most unstably thin branches of our dogwood tree that we can find." I hear sirens in their future....
Just add wind and, voila! Brain-damaged baby.
Now THIS is something I would buy. If only because it's hi-larious:
DO NOT FEED THE LOBSTER BABY
