Let’s look at the inner workings of people’s minds.  Here are some actual patents.

 

My nominees for “Worst Parent of the Year” awards   You really have to be twisted to actually get a patent on some of these.

Baby Cage  the jaw-dropping solution for co-sleepers

Baby patter  um, not sure whether to laugh or be horrified

Cry no More sadomasochism for the newborn set

Junior Jail almost puke worthy.

Diaper Alarm let’s put an electrical sensor against a baby to see if they are wet.  brilliant.

Milk Gun what were they thinking

 

And the ‘just plain odd”

Baby Shower yeah, this is just silly.

Dad Saddle  not exactly safe looking, but not horrific either.  Along the same lines, but looking a bit less safe is the Shoulder Saddle

Fashion Papoose.  I can appreciate the idea, but this is serious overkill.  lol.  Two main problems with this one.  First, why would you need a bottle, and how comfortable would it be strapped to your back, and Second, how would you get the diapers and bottles out of this thing?  This has to be the single most uncomfortable sling I have ever seen.

My parents would have liked this one  Squabble Shield

 

And not parenting related, but simply silly

Pantyhose 3x  so comfy looking too

Earthquake house  “nature’s bowling ball”

Hurricane House

Toilet Snorkel

and finally, the most practical invention, a Wearable Dog House

    Why in the heck would people pay money to patent those things? I do like the dad saddle though. That inventor must have really been thinking hard to come up with that.
