Pee Pee Teepees: Ga Ga or Gag?

Once on the changing table, baby boys sometimes like to shower their parents with, well, not love or affection, but urine!

Hence, the invention of the Pee Pee Teepee ($15). These make a great little present topper, but are they really useful?

My husband laughed when I got these as a gift, but they were actually quite handy and cute. Whenever I use a small towel or tissue, my son tries to grab and put it in his mouth. These he leaves alone, not sure why...

I bought these for my second son, they don't work very well, they are too small, do not stay in place and once they have been washed once they don't maintain the same "tee pee" shape. When changing a boy just put an open, clean diaper over his privates... it worked just fine for both of my boys.

I think it's stupid. For starters, a good stream of urine would knock that thing right off. I agree about just putting another diaper or a burp cloth over it. Getting a urine stream baptism is just part of having a boy, in my opinion. I couldn't care less if they pee on me.

This is so funny but I don't think when my son was wearing diapers it would have done any good. If any of my friends ever have a boy I might buy it for a laugh though.

I am all for buying every cute, gimmicky thing that comes on the market for my kids, but I just refused to buy this for my son (Who is 5 months). He squirms all over the place! There is no way that this would stay put. Also, I've heard from other people who have been suckered into buying it that if your baby has a strong, uh, stream (?!) that it can get knocked off. Your best bet is either a diaper, or burp cloth.

I babysat a TON growing up, but for some reason, I only ever sat for girls (not by choice, just odd chance). Add to that a complete lack of knowledge of the male anatomy, and, growing up, I was TERRIFIED of one day being peed on. If I'd known about these as a teen, I probably would have bought them for babysitting. But now, well, I'm a bit smarter than that. :)

But you all have to admit, it's cute and a little funny. Like some of you have said, it would be a great shower gift, but it's probably not too practical.

Looks like a waste of cash. If you have a little boy then you just get used to the idea that he may just squirt you sometime, just get over it LOL.

I have a little boy. We managed to make it through diaper changes without this.I think it would be really hard to keep it on. My child is just now sitting through the change and soon, he will be using the real toilet. THis is more work than it's worth

they don't work very well.

I guess it's kind of cute if you were including part of a baby boy gift basket ... BUT in real life... Just throw a cloth diaper or wash cloth over him as you change his diaper. This is easier than trying to fit a cone (and believe me... you have to be pretty quick getting him covered simultaneously while taking the diaper off as the cool air is what triggers this!!!)

I bought something called wee blocks for my son, you can get them for $10 at babies r us. I had girls before him so I was paranoid about getting peed on. Honestly, I've never had to use them because he only pees in his diaper. My baby's so smart! lol

trust me, it happens way too fast to grab a silly cone to protect yourself.

Funny idea, but I don't know if I would think of using it. I do have a boy, but I just learned to be careful. Plus they wiggle around so much that wouldn't stay on for too long.

My sister bought these for me when I had my little boy - definitely useful. I like to put a few in the diaper bag and have them for one I am on the road changing him in a public place. I have found them very, very usefull!

I think it's a cute idea, but then again, I'm partial to the Airplanes-- my hubs is a student Aviator. But I don't know how useful they'd actually be. I saw them at Motherhood, and thought- how cute. But didn't buy- but maybe b/c I don't know the sex of our babe.

My sister got one at her baby shower when she was pregnant with my nephew but I am not sure if she has used it. Personally I think it is a cool idea!

A cute baby shower gift but useless!

I totally agree with aknitter. Use another cloth diaper to cover the little dude. What a waste! This is just another wasteful product for consumers to spend their money on.
