So this got good reviews on Babies R Us, but you'll never change my mind on the following beliefs:
1. This is the baby shower equivalent to the bread maker: expensive, sounds like a good idea going in, pisses you off so much that one day, you go Gerber and never go back.
2. I don' t know what a "Beaba" is, but if a product has a vaguely European sounding name,
it sends a certain breed of mom scrambling to her Passat wagon to pay ungodly
sums for something a pot on the stove can do.
Raising children is literally the oldest trick in the book. Exactly zero people need this product.

Reading this post back, I sound a little....what's the word....bitter? Stand-off-ish? Bitchy? Most likely hypocritical, as someone who enjoys a flushing toilet as much as the next. I don't live off the grid in a cabin made of hand-stretched squirrel carcasses...I just don't understand when it happened that becoming a parent is equivalent to deep sea diving, requiring a bunch of crazy equipment.
