The PeePee TeePee
I have two boys and one girl. My eldest son was born in the winter and I, very quickly, lost count as to how many times he peed on me when he was small.
It must have had something to do with the change of air temperature seconds after I took his nappies off and the cold air hit, he would start peeing. This is not so difficult to avoid and contain if it's day time, but when you're changing baby boys in the dead of a chilly winter's night and have kept the lights down low it's a different fountain of pee dodging game altogether.
My youngest son did the same too, he was born in the summer and his free-peeing events were somewhat less than his winter born brother.
I can only imagine the inventor(s) of the PeePee TeePee is/are the parents of a boy and I'd love to have been a fly on the wall when they came up with the idea, created a prototype, tested it and decided it was going to make their fortune out on the baby market.
For £10.95 you get five little reusable soft cotton cones in their own miniature laundry bag, to keep them all together; at nappy changing time you pop a cone over the end of the ever-threatening-to-sprinkle male appendage and save yourself the worry of getting wet!
This is another one of those 'genius or junk' things I can't make up my mind about - what do you think? One thing I do know - they are pretty cute.
By the way, if you've ever used them or buy some to try - please share your experiences!
