Stay-at-home dad Robert Klick invented the Po-Knee, which was winner of Oprah Winfrey’s “Million Dollar Idea Challenge”. It is essentially a plush toy that rests on your knee, and then your baby can climb onto the toy for a ride.

A lady called Allicia from the USA is on a mission to “create the most perfect keepsake possible”. The keepsakes that she produces are pendants made with YOUR breast milk, and she goes on to say that preserved breast milk has a certain appearance to it that cannot be replicated. We’re not sure that these are the perfect keepsakes for new mothers, but they are certainly unique…

The Crumb Cap

They say that necessity is the mother of all invention, and when one American mother got fed up of her toddler constantly smearing their food into their hair, the idea for the Crumb Cap was born. It’s pretty similar to what you’d have put around you whenever you go to the hairdressers, except in this case for babies it goes around the baby’s head too.

The Kickbee

Are you pregnant? Do you use Twitter? If the answer to both of those questions is “yes”, then you need to get your hands on the Kickbee. This gadget is a stretchable band worn around a pregnant mother’s stomach, and using some clever computer wizardry it detects when your baby kicks, and posts up a tweet for you!
