    Default Your most useless baby shower gift?

    Just out of curiosity , what was your most useless baby shower gift(s)??
    I got wipe warmer(who the heck need that!) and cheap dollar store baby bottles (I mean seriously!! people want babies to suck on these chemical traps??!).Oh and a mini cricket kit..very cute but useless..more decor (will likely sell on ebay )

    I think 19 month old DS would KILL for a wipes warmer! He hates being wiped with cold wipes and I don't blame him!

    I don't think anything I got at my baby shower was useless... I didn't use the mosquito net though!

    Yeah, my DS would have loved a wipes warmer, he always cringes when it's a bit cool and the wipes are cold.

    Um, 00000 clothes that he never got to wear. It was a nice thought though. And clothes that were on sale but were too big for when it was cold but too warm now that he will fit.

    Wipes warmers take the moisture out of the wipes. Better cold and wet than lukewarm and dry, I say! Especially for chapped and hurting bums, the cold helps soothe the redness and rashes.

    Most useless presents I ever got, ear piercing vouchers {as if I'd pierce my baby's ears}, a teddy bear that was as tall as I was, a set of toe rings for babies, and a tin of chalkboard paint.
    Also, a breast pump, from a relative who knew that I have a disease that makes it impossible for me to breastfeed. Her comment was "You might get lucky!"

    I cringe every time I see someone gift dollar store bottles.

    All the Johnsons products I was given were useless to me.

    I liked the wipe warmer for ds it was cold when he was born and I never found the wipes to be dry.

    Johnsons products for me I think..
