By  | 

While there are baby “necessities” that you don’t need on your baby shower registry, the endless plethora of crap marketed to new parents rages beyond the occasion for cupcakes, specifically when staring googly-eyed at all the new gadgets. Walk down the aisle of any baby store while expecting and you’ll suddenly find yourself delighted with things like a wipe warmer! Timers! And more fun stroller configurations that you can imagine.
