To not understand why people buy these?

The hand made dummy clips.

Surely they are a choking hazard? Why would you risk it?

I can't sleep because I have a cough and earache. A face book post selling it annoyed me, so I figured I'd vent  smile

I hate those too. I used a different kind for my firstborn. The beaded ones are a hazard, plus they aren't particularly flexible, so they pretty much don't work that well.

The name on it says it all...

Because people are stupid.

I can't understand why people keep buying George Ezra's music, but they do.

You can't make sense of some things.

Its not a name I would (or have) chosen for my child, but I would never judge someone else for choosing it. I do however judge you @funkylittleboatrace for being an utter snob.

I like the name Riley.....

Riley is a nice name. Wouldn't use since the Riley character on Buffy though.

My nephews name is Riley, he is a great kid with a wonderful personality..... an area that some people seem to be lacking in hmm

I have a couple made of silicone teething beads... They're brilliant. I wouldn't use them if my baby was going to be unattended (which she practically never is anyway) but I use them when we're out at cafes etc and she's sitting in a high chair to clip a few teething toys to her clothes.
Otherwise they end up on the floor every three seconds and I get through a whole pack of Milton wipes before I've finished my tea.

If you're sitting with your baby there's no danger and I think they're invaluable.

I can't see the images. What is a dummy clip?
Is it an addendum to the dummies that parents stick in their child's mouth?
None of my 4 children had dummies. 3 of them didn't need one, and the 4th has severe learning disabilities so I gave her one to stop her mythering, and she chewed them all up and spat them out. Even the indestructible ones that are made out of the stuff that they make heart replacement stuff out of. Nope. Chewed it up and spat it out.

So, no. I wouldn't risk this dummy clip. It sounds first world totally unnecessary bollocks. Just ride the first two years. It will get better.

StoppinBy I'm not judging the name of anyone with it. I just don't like the character. I know plenty amazing people who share names with people who were bullies and made life hell. I never judged them on their name either.
