Yes, it is what you think it is. Finally, some product design genius has solved the daily nightmare parents of baby boy’s face: the uncontrolled and fountain-like stream of pee that escapes when baby’s diaper is undone.
Someone obviously thought this was a big enough problem to actually create product to solve it.
For anyone who has ever changed the diaper of an infant boy or baby know, they are aware that at anytime the baby is un-diapered, and air hits the usually covered parts of baby, the result can be the release of, yes, pee.
Parents have been showered, soaked, amused and irritated by this.
Most Ridiculous Baby Product Ever: The Wee Block
Enter the Wee Block, a cup like shield to protect parents from baby’s home made fountain. The Wee Block is made of cotton and is machine washable. The dome shape of the Wee Block is intended to catch the escaping pee. With the force of some of baby boys’ surprises, it’s hard to not imagine, the liquid bouncing back onto baby.
The Wee Block is selling for $12.95. The One Step Ahead people who sell the Wee Block think parents should buy two. For a mere $26 you too can protect yourself from baby’s pee! That is the most ridiculous price point for a baby product ever.
The only thing that would make the Wee Block an attractive baby product, and not the most ridiculous one ever, is a decent price. This baby product looks like a $1.95 baby product, or one that should be sold in a set of six. There is not justification for buying this product at $12.95 each.
The only good decision One Step Ahead made when it comes to selling the Wee Block is that they won’t accept returnables. Parents can save themselves the trouble altogether by not buying the Wee Block in the first place.
Why You Don’t Need The Wee Block
Smart parents, which means, the ones that have had it done to them once or twice, have found an absolutely ingenious solution! Before removing baby’s diaper, take out a new diaper, place it under the baby, as if you are going to adhere it to the baby. When you undo the soiled diaper and remove it, simply fold the top of the new diaper over baby’s parts.
Then do any wiping or powdering. Then the smart parents secure the new diaper. Voila! The parent has made it through another diaper change without getting wet, andwithout purchasing the most ridiculous baby product ever.
The other advantage to using an actual diaper to help catch the baby’s pee is that the diaper will actually absorb the liquid. If this happens, simply use another diaper to change the baby.
