Sometimes the simplest ideas make the best baby products! The Mommy Hook ($8) is just a giant, metal carabiner with grippy rubber wrapped around it, but I’m taking it everywhere I go. With one hand I can quickly attach my large diaper bag to the stroller handle and the rubber part keeps it from slipping down the side and dangling on the floor.
Last weekend, when grocery shopping sans kids, I used it to secure my reusable shopping bags to the front of the cart. That way they don’t get buried by the food or fall out onto the floor. And it’s indispensible for a mall trip! True, it’s great for parents, but I can see this becoming a useful tool for anybody.
