12 Reasons wipe warmers are the most useless baby product ever invented

Your baby's bare, beautiful butt is just so sweet and fragile. What kind of monster would ever change a diaper with freezing cold wipes left out at room temperature?

If you gather round a group of seasoned moms and ask the question, "What is the most useless baby product you ever bought?" you'll always wind up with the same answer. If you guessed the dreaded wipe warmer, you would be right.

For new parents, the wipe warmer is alluring and hard to resist. It's the perfect fancy-schmancy, adorable gadget that you need so you can pretend you're actually doing something earth-shattering, instead of changing a dirty diaper.

Don't be fooled. The luster of the wipe warmer will wear off. Wipes will dry out. Your baby's butt will still be dirty. Soon enough, you'll have to face the fact that one of the major components of your parenting job description is the shoveling of shit. Even the handiest wipe warmer can't take away the sting of a cold-truth slap to the face.

If you want to stay ahead of the parenting game, listen to those who have gone before you. Without a doubt, wipe warmers are listed as one of the top products that every parent doesn't need. Here are a few great reasons why.
