Some products are too astonishing not to be shared with as many people as possible...

Perhaps you’ve noticed how that infant of yours needs to be fed just when you’re getting into a housework groove? Or maybe she demands nourishment just as you’re putting the finishing touches on that project evaluation for the office? The attention and holding that such feeding requires can take valuable minutes.

Not to worry -- help is at hand. For $11.95, time-pressed parents can purchase a Bottle Genie that lets infants feed themselves. (It was $19.95, but there’s a sale.)

The website states:


‘Mothers and Fathers love to feed their babies. In fact, most early bonding takes place during the feeding routine each day. What happens if you’re on an outing, shopping, strolling in the park or even have multiples, and your little one needs a feeding? It’s the perfect time for the Bottle Genie baby bottle holder.’

(Here’s what the Mayo Clinic has to say about infant feeding. It would seem that at least a portion of that bonding comes from human touch, not just the quelling of appetite.)

The press release quotes the product’s developer as saying: ‘As a mother, I knew there had to be a better way than just propping the baby’s bottle up on a blanket or pillow, which are neither sturdy not dependable.’

Most parents would probably agree.
