I have it out of storage for #2's arrival and it is sitting over the bath again. When I want to bathe my toddler I just lift it off, no drama. I used it until #1 was almost 12 months. It was brilliant!

Huggies nappies - new design sucks, don't bother with them
Small wraps - useless
Socks - DD has never kept them on and they were adorable and teeny but all packed away pretty quickly
'Finger puppet' toothbrush - DD just bites down and it hurts lol
I love our baby bath - DD is 14months and still uses hers with the lying down bath seat, she doesn't like baths without it yet
Also love our change table - has saved my back!

Definitely depends on the person - our 2 year old still uses the baby bath daily. It's on top of our washing machine, hooked up so that the water drains straight into the washing machine drain and water runs straight in from the tap. Love it!
Agree on the bumbo and hooded towels.
Also think any colic/wind remedies from the chemist are absolute rubbish
Oh and those swaddle wraps with velcro where you're supposed to be able to strap the arms down. Never worked for us.

My biggest regret, was a cot mobile. I think I used it 3 times at the most. Also small muslin swaddles and a bottle warmer. Oh and most of the 0000 clothes I bought. I got way too many and didn't think about the season. I packed them away a few months ago and hadn't realised how many I had that he didn't even wear!

Agree with fiddly 0000 clothes, especially for a summer baby - gotta be cool, quick to get on & off and comfy!
Also the baby bath seat & muslin wraps weren't used more than twice in our house. DD went in the shower with DH pretty much from birth until she could sit up in the bath by herself, and she would Houdini out of any wrap so we put her in the Love to Dream swaddles.

Wide neck bottles.
We bought so many of them wheni was pregnant, the only ones that didn't give dd major colic were the cheap little narrow neck bottles at $2 each!
Once we switched her bottles over she was a whole different baby.
If I ever have another baby I will be buying one wide neck bottle and one narrow neck and seeing which is better.
I wouldn't waste all that money again.
Also, "newborn" Nappies, dd was a large baby when she was born(4.5kgs) and the new born sized Nappies just never fitted, we had boxes and boxes of new born huggies that we ended up donating and had to go out and buy the next sizes up.
Sophie the teething giraffe.
Seriously, it's no different to a dog chew toy.

I'm not a fan of singlets. They ride up under the onesies and make my boys uncomfortable, I much prefer the singlets with snaps on the bottom.

Agree with the 'pretty' clothes in small sizes. Dd is 8mths, sz 1 and is only now just starting to wear 'pretty' clothes.
Also, baby shoes?! Why? My dd was given a pair of little converse shoes when she was born. Yes they are cute but practical....no. I put them on her once for the sake of a photo and then straight back in the box.
Bibs in any size. I have just found then useless (or maybe I just have super messy kids!) I made a few second tume around because I didn't think I would use them much and didn't want to waste the money.
Designer nappy bags. Pretty yes but also expensive. You can pick up some really nice bags that are much more practical for a fraction of the price.

Oh I just thought of another ripper...
The Grotime papoose bassinet that only sits over the cot and doesn't have wheels. Not mobile.. if I was happy to have baby in its cot I'd put it in the actual cot! Never used it, haven't even taken it out of storage for this bub.
(Lucky it came free with the cot in a promo and I didn't actually pay for it!)
