6 Baby Products I Wish Existed
The world of baby products on the market is vast. There is a whole slew of fantastic products, along with a good number of items I'll never need or use. However, there are still some things I can think of that would help me out in my day-to-day with baby. Here are 6 baby products I wish existed. Don't judge.

Baby Nail Clipping Service
Clipping my baby’s nails is the WORST! Trying to do it when she’s awake is futile. And to do it when she’s asleep is like Mission Impossible. I feel like special agent Ethan Hunt, in that famous scene where he’s dangling by two cables from the ceiling, surrounded by lasers, trying to hack the CIA computer. But in my case, I’m trying to trim the tiniest fingernails ever without touching any part of the surrounding skin, and without being a special fingernail clipping agent. Bring in the professionals!
Disposable High Chair Covers
As much as I love to see my baby daughter enjoy her food, I dread cleaning up the aftermath. Sure, there are bibs, but what are they REALLY protecting? A 9X9 square of her shirt? And the food that gets caught in all the crevices of the seat drives me crazy. I need disposable high chair covers that cover the ENTIRE chair, like a paint drip cloth or a huge sheet of plastic that goes over the seat and contains everything, and that you can then just throw away. Too Dramatic? No. Lazy? How dare you.
Mini Blinders for Baby
This photo may not be pretty, but it illustrates what happens when any of us are eating something within baby’s peripheral vision that isn’t baby food. She becomes obsessed with having it, whether it’s ice cream (as shown above) or beef jerky. I need blinders—like a Clydesdale wears—to simply block out my baby’s side vision so she can focus on her delicious, pureed food.
Chubby Baby Thigh Mold Kit
Baby thighs are so scrumptious that they need to be smooshed, squeezed, kissed and…memorialized, as far as I’m concerned. What about a baby thigh mold kit? So that you can make a mold of that chunky little thigh? And remember it forever. What a fantastic memento to display in her nursery. Handprint, bronzed shoe, THIGH!
Worried Parent Hotline
How about a “Worried Parent Hotline” to call whenever you—I mean, “other parents,”—are FREAKING OUT about something. You could call it whenever, for any parenting concern, and speak to a live representative who is “worried-parent certified,” i.e. he listens and makes you feel better about something that doesn’t warrant freaking out or about something stupid you did.
A Lock Button on TV Remote Controls
Forget the toys that look like remote controls. Baby always wants the real deal. She’s no dummy. But, HELLO? How about a “lock” button on the remote so she can’t turn the channel to C-Span right before they announce the award for Outstanding Drama Series at the Emmys?!!
