Whoa, Baby! Check Out These Patents.

Whether you have kids of your own or not, you may be interested in seeing some of the stranger ways that people are parenting these days. Take, for example, this newly patented practice of bringing your baby into the world:

Apparatus for Facilitating the Birth of a Child by Centrifugal Force This one is probably causing a lot of controversy- a table to which an expectant mother is strapped and then spun upon. The idea is that the centrifugal force will encourage the baby to emerge.

Once baby gets here, there are a few different things you can do with him/her.

Baby Bottom Art Look no further for inspiration than your babys bottom! Pick up your kids, dip them in paint, and stamp their little behinds on paper to create your own abstract masterpiece. You can even buy the kit which comes with paint, paper, and a dipping basin.

The Baby Cage Baby having trouble sleeping? While most people would just put the crib by their beds, others might turn to the baby cage. Its an oval shaped domed structure featuring curved crossbars that are strong enough to support an adult’s weight, keeping baby safe. This way, you can bring baby into the bed with you.

The Other Baby Cage This one isnt restricted to the bedroom- an enclosure for a baby (called a capsule) of openwork construction to permit access of a persons hand that may take multiple forms. The base is part-spherical so that movement of the baby within causes the enclosure to rock. Dont worry, though, a section is removable in order to allow full access inside.

(Dismembered) Mommy Hands This pillow is said to help parents leave a part of them with their baby. The hands are designed to mimic moms size, weight, touch, and feel in order to comfort and support baby while he/she is sleeping. Originally developed for premature babies, there is something just visually disturbing about this product.baby2
