Nipples In A Pinch

Once in a while you come across a product that is incredibly ingenious, and well, obvious. This leads me to the usual head-knocking thought, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

Kudos to inventor Tommy Habeeb, former host of the popular reality-TV show "Cheaters”, for his fabulous ingenuity of the water bottle nipple adaptor. This adaptor turns any water bottle into a baby bottle. How simple is that? A mere $1.95 gets you two sizes of adaptors, plus a free nipple just in case you find yourself without.

Picture this: You’ve dashed out of the house, forgetting the bottle to feed your baby. Thanks to the nipple adaptor, you can pour some formula into a bottle of water and perfecto, no unhappy, hungry kid. Or perhaps you find yourself at the zoo with the kids on a hot day. Instead of having to drag bulky bottles around in your diaper bag, just throw the small adapter in before you leave and buy water there. Simple! Perfect! You can find the nipple adaptor nationwide at convenience stores like 7-Eleven and Circle-K for a mere $1.95. They will be available in the majority of convenience and grocery stores across the country by Spring of 2007. You can also check it out at

What about germs?

Used bottles are usually full of germs, and even though this is a "clever" idea, I'd be afraid to use an adapter except in real emergencies--but how often would that be? If you can remember an adapter, can't you just remember something more essential like your baby's bottles???

um, yeah... that's the point.

yes, used bottles ARE full of germs... that's kinda the point of this product from what i can tell.   NEW bottles of water are NOT full of germs... which is what you'd be using for your baby.<br><br>This invention makes it so you don't have to use used bottles.  so yeah, you could remember to bring your used, germ-filled bottle with you (which obviously you are scared of)... or you bring a little plastic circle and not have to worry about ANY germs.  um, yeah... that's the point.<br><br>And yeah, the point of "emergencies" is that you DON'T KNOW how often that would be... hence the use of the term "emergency."  pretty easy to have a little doo-dad just in case.

Way to go...

I like the fact that this is sold at various convenience stores--for those just in case emergencies.  Good price allows for a calmer mom who is normally trying to remember everything under the sun for baby!
