How about a baby jacuzzi for your one percent offspring?

How about a baby jacuzzi for your one percent offspringWe see it all the time on reality television and celebrity tabloids: Rich people love dousing money all over their kids to make them stand out from the rest of those, uh, average children. If your baby won’t be caught in public without designer dresses, shoes, and the most expensive toys, why should their morning routines be any less glamorous? Instead of bathing your infant in a basin like everyone else, indulge your child with the BluBleu MagicBath, a luxurious Italian-made jacuzzi designed specifically for children under 12 months old.

The MagicBath is molded to comfortably fit an infant while you draw a bath, and the tub contains an air massage system to help the baby relax as you do your thing. Ten air jets help create thousands of bubbles to get your baby giggling, and the machine features different settings to resemble a spa-like experience. What, at 11 months your baby is already stressing out? Use the chemotherapy setting from the digital display menu to help him or her let loose a little. Look, the pressure of learning to walk and talk is a lot, okay? Have you seen the commercials for Your Baby Can Read? Parents want their babies to start understanding words as early as nine months old. Can’t y’all just give babies a bit of a break, they have their whole lives to comprehend things.

Anyway, whirlpool settings aren’t the only thing MagicBath offers. To help trip your baby out even more, the MagicBath also has six underwater LED lights to heighten the experience so you can bathe your child in their favorite colors, from a sequence of indigo to violet shades of light. Best of all, the MagicBath meets all safety standards. And it should, because for almost $2,200 you better hope this baby jacuzzi won’t end up drowning your child. Nor should the hundreds of rubber duckies in that tub.

Completely unnecessary? Beyond belief. However, a lower end model of this could be nice for parents who want a prettier bath for their child. The MagicBath is set on wheels so it’s portable, and is leveled to come up to the adult’s waist level so they can comfortably give their child a good scrubbing at any part of the house. A detachable hose helps drain the water out after the bath so setting up and cleaning is hassle-free.

Still, introducing the concept of luxury spas to your kid even before they know how to speak could be a terribly bratty experience in the long run. But what do you care, one percenters? It’s not like there’s any way you will wash your baby in a bathroom sink like every other American.

Teach your child how to sleep right with the new Suzy Snooze baby monitor
The Suzy Snooze teaches your kid to sleep more soundly, goes on sale tomorrow
suzy snooze

Talk to any new parent or veteran of the child-rearing experience and you will find that one of the biggest difficulties to overcome is the lack of sleep. Of course, new children need attention, but if they would just go to bed on time and not awaken until morning, everyone's lives would be a lot easier. That is what Suzy Snooze wants to make happen and it is already turning more than a few parents' heads.

Combining a baby monitor, sleep trainer, and nightlight all in one connected gadget with its own smartphone app is quite a tall order, but that is what the cutesy little Suzy Snooze is. It is the brainchild of Bleep Bleeps, the same company that Kickstarted Sammy Scream in 2014. This time it is back with a design that is the complete opposite, but no less smart and cute.

Strapping monitors to your sleeping baby could cause some problems

Parents always want to know what’s going on with their children, but those who use certain monitors to track their baby's health are warned that these products come with some potential problems. Experts say smartphone-integrated baby monitors have not been proven safe, accurate, or effective, according to a review in The Journal of the American Medical Association. These devices connect to apps on your smartphone and display your infant's health information, like his or her pulse, blood oxygen saturation, and respiration.

Many of the devices will sound an alarm if metrics indicate your baby is experiencing a possible health complication. This alarm system is a potential cause for concern, as false alarms can result in stress for parents, excessive trips to the doctor or hospital, unneeded medical testing, and costly medical expenses, Dr. Christopher Bonafide, a pediatrician and co-author of the JAMA review, told CBS News.

NutriBaby is a smart baby-food processor that keeps track of all your little one’s meals
nutribaby connect smart baby food processor ces 2017

Many parents I know don’t bother to buy baby food. They prefer to toss some food in the blender until it comes out into what is often an unappetizing green slop that gets smeared all over their children’s faces. The blender works pretty well, but there’s also a device, the Babymoov NutriBaby, that is specifically designed to produce baby food. The benefit is that it steams, defrosts, and blends, all in one. It also sterilizes and warms bottles.

The NutriBaby+Connect is the company’s forthcoming product and it was on display at CES. It looks a little different from the older version, as it now has a touchscreen. One side is a steamer, the other a blender. It’s also, as the name implies, smart. Using the Happeez app, parents can find recipes for the food processor, then start steaming or blending. It has a 6.3-cup capacity and three chopping speeds.
