Had my scheduled 16 week appt this morning. All is well and the baby sounds great. Next appt and the BIG u/s is scheduled for 9.11.09, we can't wait! While there I rummaged through the magazine racks on the wall to see if I wanted any of the freebies offered. Picked up two. When I got home I was flipping through and two ad's caught my attention and alls I could think was WTF? Are these items for real?
The 1st one I'd like to bring up is the Tummy Tub USA. (See picture below) Now I don't know about you but the first thing that came to my mind was those 5 gallon buckets that have the warnings to not let your kids in them with water b/c of risk of drowning. Seems very similar. But this site says it's stressfree for the baby, they adopt the fetal position, and this is good up until 18 months. I just don't really see the ease of actually washing the baby in this or feeling really safe using it.
This next one literally had me laughing out loud, just trying to envision the comfortableness of it. It's called the Kush Support, (See picture below). This product offers comfort for C-cup breasts or larger, proper spine alignment, side sleeprs, breast impants, pregnancy, nursing mothers, menstrual cycles. Perhaps it's me but when I think of my gi-normous breasts - I just don't see this staying in place - yet according to the testimonials this little thing is amazing.
I think a lot of this is in how the ads are done - what are your thoughts? Would you consider using either of these?
*I have not seen or tested either of these products - these ramblings are just from seeing the ads in a magazine and the humor I found in them. *
