If they suck in, you are probably using them incorrectly. The trick with avent bottles (both with & without the ring) is to not screw the lid up too tightly. When done properly they make a little gurgling noise. If the nipple sucks inwards then it's not getting the air release. Bubs might also be sucking hard & you might need to go up a size to a faster flow.
Anyway back to topic...
Padded baby bath recliner insert thing, didn't make holding bub any easier and took forever to dry because of the fabric over it and was constantly soggy, yuk! Was used about three times before being ditched.
Seconding the gro egg as useless.
Smaller size swaddling wraps, were used only as burp cloths and the like, good wrapping requires a large wrap IMO!!
I loved the gro egg! My toddler use it as a night light now
Also love the hooded bath towels.
ETA loved the Fisher Price little lamb. Saved my sanity
Bought it second hand and sold it along for the same price a few months later.

Not purchases, but we were gifted several dummy products. Ie thermometer in a dummy, medicine dispenser in a dummy. The child won't take a dummy full stop, let alone if he was crying and I wanted to take his temp or give him medicine.

Avent electric breast pump. Literally ripped my nipples by rubbing against that rubber insert thingie.
Avent electric steriliser. It didn't hold enough water (less than the instructions said to put in) and the base got burned. Took it back and exchanged for the microwave version for half the price. Less mess and faffing around. Plus can be stored in the microwave when not in use instead of having something sit on the bench top.
