My Pee Pee Bottle

There are a number of reasons why "My Pee Pee Bottle" is a disturbing product. Reason #1: It looks WAY too much like a sippy cup. (Though there are some who say that urine drinking is healthy.)

Reason #2: The instructions (and accompanying picture) are too explicit for my sensibilities. Isn't it obvious how a Pee Pee Bottle works?

Whatever happened to finding a bush to go behind?

Ref #2: If a parent hasn't figured out yet where the pee-pee comes out then these bottles aren't going to help much UNLESS they have explicit instructions on their use.

Going behind friendly bushes and/or trees can get you on a/the perverts' list for life. Do you really think parents want to subject their offspring to that kind of danger at so early an age?

BTW gang, if you didn't follow the link to 20 Strange then you should really avail yourself of the fine choice of goodies available for today's babies.

As a dad of two, a boy and a girl, my experiance with all this gimmick stuff is that it is usually just that...a gimmick...unnecessary and hardly ever works the way it is intended. I think alot of this stuff is intended to scam money out of new parents.

The poop scoop bag is gross. Put a freaking diaper on your kid. If you want to be green about, get washable diapers. I assure you before long you will say 'f#@$ this' and get some disposable diapers.

Baby knee pads, Thudguard Helmet, pee-pee teepee, baby legs (BTW-why are the babies naked in that pic?), Peter Potty Toddler Urinal? To all of this stuff - WTF?

Living in New Orleans, I see more of a need for this for outside activities (French Quarter, Mardi Gras). And guess what, they have them for adults complete with a funnel for women.

Wayne, I'd guess that "The toddler urinal is also brilliant." would pale about the time you had to clean it! Doesn't quite look too cleaner friendly to me.

No kids, just guessing.

Pfft, kids have it too easy these days. When I was young, we peed in a beer bottle, and we didn't complain about it!

When I was in the Army, we would do convoys from time to time on the highway. The convoy didn't stop for one person so we always brought empty plastic bottles with us. You just had to have someone hold the wheel for you if you were driving. And so help you if you hit a bump. Yuck!

Wayne, I found a couple of cheerios or fruit loops in the toilet helped with my son's aim. Turned the whole thing into a game.
