    Why pay attention to your body when technology can do that for you? The Kickbee is a device that "an expectant mom wears...around her belly. When the vibration sensors detect the baby kicking, the device can send a tweet. It's meant to be a way to keep the mom's partner, family and friends involved and up to date when they can't be physically near. Cute in theory, Twitter trolling in practice," according to parenting.com.

    For the small price of $3,000, you can get this baby stroller by Aston Martin and be a sadder version of James Bond. According to the NY Daily News, "the aluminum alloy wheels are based on the $1.8 million Aston Martin One-77, the leather is an exact match to that used in the cars, and its air-ride suspension 'guarantees a smooth ride for all.'"

    Let's face it: while they can be kind of cute sometimes, babies are pretty useless. Teach your baby the value of hard work and put him or her to good use with the Baby Mop outfit! Buy this at www.betterthanpants.com. Please buy it. I like this one.

    This item is actually quite lovely: it's handmade by Etsy seller ChadPHuntFineArt, but babies make a lot of mess, and you could probably find a less expensive place to store your little guy when you're not using him.

    Here's a really weird one. This is a (fake) fetus in a jar that you can sport around your neck to make everyone profoundly uncomfortable. Etsy seller SweetObsolete writes that this item, made from polymer, glass, and clay, is "a very interesting and unique piece for sure!"
