Save £275 by not buying these 10 useless things for your baby
Which! have polled some jaded parents with stains all over them and drawn up a list of items that prospective parents definitely DON’T need to buy for their baby.
And it’s not just designer silver dummies or £200 changing bags that top the list of pointless items for the new arrival. Stuff that shops will have you believe are vital accessories are mostly just crap, and will fester in a cupboard before being foisted on the nearest gullible parents-to-be up the road.
Which! asked around 2000 parents of children under 5 to provide a top ten of kiddie junk that is never used, and number one was the KIDDIE DOOR BOUNCER.
Yes, although you like the idea of your bundle of joy kicking up a storm, the reality is that they don’t fit on any door frame ever made, and babies totally f***** hate them.
Also high on the charts were fabric slings (only work if you’re an insufferable hippy), baby washing bowls (use the bath), manual breast pumps (sod that) and baby hammocks, which are dangerous and quite astonishingly pointless.
One thing you really will need, however, is Netflix and a neverending box of Stowells of Chelsea going into a vein.
