Oopsi Headguards

There's nothing wrong with helping nature keep your baby safe until that soft spot fixes itself. Consider it a stylish crown for Prince or Princess Baby. And, honestly, your baby won't mind. Right now, everything they do is cute. Some head protection won't change that one bit.

I couldn't buy this for my toddler. I would feel like she was special needs with this on. She does bump into things a lot, but that's a part of growing up. It helps you learn to be aware of your surroundings. I think it only took her hitting her head 3 times on the underside of the table to teach her to stand up slowly and be careful.

This is a little appalling. Do they sell bubble wrap jackets and pants, too?? My generation was raised without any baby proofing. My Mom watches my nephew two days a week and NONE of her cabinets are locked, no plugs are capped. Instead, she actually watches him. Yes, he opens them once in a while, but one of them has stuff he's allowed to play with and he's been taught not to mess with the others.

My son wouldn't keep this on his head for 30 seconds. He won't wear a hat to keep the sun out of his eyes, he definitely wouldn't want anything to do with this goofy contraption. The idea just seems silly. Is there some epidemic of head injuries in infants and toddlers? I don't like that my little guy bumps his head, but it's going to happen. This thing wouldn't protect a child from a sever fall or blow to the head anyway. They'll probably sell a ton of these to nervous parents, though.

My son would never keep this on either. It is probably on woot because no one is actually buying them

There are so many weird things out there that pander to paranoid parents. Add this one to the list.

While I think this product is completely ridiculous, I do think the kiddo modeling one is absolutely a doll!

This is probably the stupidest thing I've ever seen on Woot.

In the 18th century these were called Puddin' caps. To prevent babies from turning their brain into Puddin'. Not kidding. They've been around a long time. They looked better 250 years ago.

Will this fit over my child's tin-foil hat?

Not only is this product absurd for the obvious reasons (and sure to get you branded a paranoid psycho parent if anyone sees your kid in one), I think it could even cause developmental problems. Even the tinest kids learn early on that ramming into things hurts a little. That's a natural & important part of learning to walk and interact with the world around them, and depriving them of that doesn't seem to be a good idea.

I have jokingly said that my daughter needed a helmet when she was learning to walk, with paver tile floors throughout the entire house she fell and bounced her noggin off the floor more than a couple of times. I guess I would have bought this for her to wear during that period of time (as long as no one ever knew but me,) but like others have said, she would have ripped it of the second I put it in her!

A lot of good objections based on the sheer ridiculous-ness of this product, and yet no one has mentioned that it says "OOPSI" on your child's head.

Ok, I have to speak up here. My son sat at 5mo and as crawling at 6mos. He went up a flight of stairs two days later. He was for too mobile for his common sense and sense of space. I probably would have considered this at that time if it was available.

One of our twins needed physical therapy because she had very weak muscles. She learned to sit up well before she learned to STAY up and as a result would always fall backwards and smack her head straight on our tile floor. I always dreamed of something like this that didn't cost $50 or more.
