    Avent anti colic bottles! Those rings drove me nuts.. The whole supposed to help with colic thing did not help at all.
    Frilly dresses and other complicated clothes in 0000 DD had so many dresses and bits and pieces she never wore in 0000. Im all about practicality

    Steel craft Eden pram. Worst pram ever. It's impossible to steer unless the back two wheels are locked, but if the back two wheels are locked into the forward position, you cannot go backwards, so you can't navigate shops at all. Also, the solid plastic wheels are crap, all the tread wore off them within a few months and there was no traction on the footpath at all.

    I ended up leaving it on the street. Someone took it within 5 minutes. I know I could have sold it, but it was such a terrible pram I didn't want anyone to curse me for it! I figured at least if they got it for free off the street, they wouldn't have high expectations.

    I did the same thing with a $24 target brand upright stroller. Crap on so many levels. Took about half an hour for someone to take that home.

    Mother's choice coco bassinet. Looks gorgeous but it's too deep and your arm goes numb after a few minutes leaning over and bum patting. Also doesn't have wheels to move around the house.

    Baby Bjorn carrier. F'ed up my back majorly. Thought it was just me so put it in DH's car for him to use while I moved on to an Ergo. It then f'ed up DH's back too!

    Wow so many people disliked the Avent manual pump. I on the other hand thought it was great & handy to stash in the nappy bag. But then again I was a full time pumper.

    I would not recommend one of those nappy wrapping disposal bins. There a several brands, but they're all a waste of money imo as you need to keep buying the bag refills which are so expensive! I was given one and it's now just used as a simple rubbish bin.

    I love my nappy wrap bin, but we tend to only use it for pooey nappies, so we spend less than $10/month on the bin liners. It's brilliant!!

    Hated the avent anti colic bottles, they were a nightmare!

    I agree with those who mentioned J&J products, nappy wrapping bins and fancy clothes in anything smaller than an 0. Im also about practicality and am a wonder suits kind of gal for at least the first 6 months.

    I would also like to add: change table. Never used one, never wanted one. We change on the floor on a large change mat.
    Fancy high chairs- especially the padded ones as they're so hard to clean. This time round with dd we have gone back to using the old fisher price portable high chair strapped to our dining chair with a towel underneath. So easy to clean and convenient too.
    Bumbos. I actually don't get the appeal.

    Bumbo's. By the time mine could sit in them their little legs were too chubby and it would squeeze them and make them cry. Then the straps clip was so awkwardly placed that you'd need to break your hand to try and clip it so it wouldnt pinch bubbas thighs! Wtf bumbo, wtf!!
