    Default What do you regret buying your child?

    Anything with little bits so sick of stepping on them and we now have a rule if I step on it and it's not being played with at the time I throw it in the bin. We now have hardly any Barbie shoes, little ear rings and littlest pet shop bits of crap. I'm such a mean mummy (I also have a 1 and 2 year old constantly eating the little bits too so miss 5 and 8 have had fair warning

    A potty! Wish we just went straight to a toilet! She is perfectly toilet trained at home now (over 3 weeks without an accident!) but won't use the toilet at shops of daycare so still have to use nappies! Also DVDs, I hate the constant DVD changing!

    I've bought DS so many shoes that he can't even wear properly! Thongs and cool little slip-on ones that don't stay on a toddler, as well as ones with slippery/fabric soles that are just dangerous!

    Also, a little bike that was cheap, and a cheap trike that are both dodgy and don't function properly and are more dnagerous than anythiing else!

    The majority of the plastic cr@p sitting in the playroom. I'd love to ditch about half of it.

    A highchair. I didnt buy it, it was a gift from IL's. I said i wanted/needed one and i even picked it out! It was $150, had everything a highchair possibly could. It was also the biggest waste of money...their money. It was a gift, so i cant even sell it off to anyone. I used it for 4 weeks and just couldnt deal with all the cleaning it needed. It took up space, dd climbed all over it, the seat was too deep, the nooks and cranny's filled with muck, The smell of old food, The material stained when i gave dd any type of sauce eg: baked beans, spag bol sauce. I was pressure hosing the whole thing down weekly. Such a pain in the ****! I found a porta chair for $10 off ebay and have been using it ever since. DD just moved onto a real chair at the table but she still eats her snaks in the porta chair - BEST $10 i ever spent. Will never reccomend high chairs.

    Yes, I second this!! They are crap and really easy to break. I just threw them all out (fingers crossed DS doesn't notice!)
