A man invented this, right?
*Edit: I received a comment from a reader sharing that a baby was harmed when using one of these types of bottle holders – please please use caution and never walk away from your baby while he or she is feeding.*
My initial reaction to these pictures was “Oh my word, is this laziness or what?”. You see, I breastfeed my baby. There’s no way I can get away from holding my baby while feeding, so you can’t blame me for thinking that (maybe with a bit of jealousy). I personally wouldn’t want to put my child down and let him eat alone anyway. There’s something so sweet and comforting about holding and feeding a baby. They like to look at mommy or daddy while feeding – it’s a special bonding time for us and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
That said, I’ve never had twins or triplets, or more than one baby at one time. So I imagine that these inventions are helpful for some. I can’t even imagine what they must go through taking care of more than one wailing, hungry infant!
Here are some baby bottle holders invented by parents who need a break… BAD.

I can actually see trying to use something like this while reading, lol. Because I DO use one hand to hold my ereader while feeding. BUT while sitting in a restaurant? I think not.

I did read that it might be dangerous to prop your baby’s bottle in their mouth, especially while they’re very young… so be careful if you’re doing that!
