Milk Saver? Auto burper?

I've been browsing a lot of online shops lately looking for nursing wear. Just like all other baby related items, these can be quite pricey. Very often, they aren't even very good looking! (Yes, I can just wear my normal tops but my tummy is not 'pre-pregnancy' yet and I don't want it hanging out as I feed.)

Anyway, I've got my tops. And just in case you wanted to know, I found that the shops from the UK offered the most reasonable prices for the ones I wanted.

During my internet travels, I came across this really strange item - The Milkies Milk Saver. Its for saving leaking breastmilk as you feed or pump. It actually is a very clever idea and for people that leak a lot, it would make things a lot less messy.

These days the invention that I would really like is an auto-burper. Adrian is one super gassy baby. I'm spending more time burping him than anything else. We burp halfway through a feed, after a feed, 15 mins after a feed, 60 mins later...ALL DAY LONG! His whole heads turns purple if I leave him to try to get some of these out himself. If you had your eyes closed when he did burp, you'd imagine it came from an obnoxious teenager. They really are huge and rumbly.

They have all sorts of seats and carriers for babies these days. They just need to invent one that will hold the baby either in the full sitting position with chin supported or have the baby lying on his stomach with chin supported and limbs hanging down. Then, they can have an automatic hand that will keep patting until the burp rolls up. Actually, I don't even need the auto hand. I don't mind patting him while something else is holding him up. It has been really hot having him over my shoulder these few days and getting him even more irritated than he already is.

Hey check this out! I thought I'd just quickly Google "Crazy Baby Products" before finishing off my post and look what it came up with: 20 Products Great For Traumatizing Infants. (OMG...I think No 9 has me traumatized.)

Well I watched all about the milk saver. They should have bragged that "these are not professional actors".

I often wonder if our members of Congress and some of our Supreme Court justices were "super gassy babies" and just never got over it. Hmmm...

Hey! You're messin' with your format. Very brave. I'm always worried I won't like the new way and won't be able to get it back the way it was.
