I've seen some pretty stupid Kickstarter campaigns before but this one takes the cake. Seriously, get the hell off Instagram / Facebook / Pinterest, put down the damn phone and feed your kid. The worst part? This thing is already halfway to its funding goal with two weeks to go. :eek:

They should just get this into Wal Marts and get rich selling a million of them. People buy all sorts of stupid baby stuff, this is just another stupid item people would buy for a few $

That baby will be strong as hell holding a bottle and a cellphone! Livestream you feeding your baby!

Funded by people likely to do the least amount of parenting as possible. The same types that will get their kid an iPad when they are 2 years old just so they keep busy without being involved.

I am not sure I could have said it better than this.

Sad part is that it might sell the way people are attached to their phones.

I'm all for easy identification on which people are wastes of air, but this seems a bit harsh on the baby.

The have a slightly different version that looks like a small baseball cap with a tray for breast feeders. :)

Some people get pets and kids as a status symbol with no real interest in either. They should be forbidden to have any of those.
If you will not dedicate the amount of time to raise you kids responsible don't f#cking get one

This world is screwed when people get to the point where social media is more important than feeding/bonding with their own flesh & blood child.

I hope the kid throws up onto the parents phone. It's not just that it's a dumb idea, it's that people are this lazy now that it's not a dumb idea.

I'm wondering how they were able to make a baby in the first place if they can't be bothered to not use a phone when feeding said baby.

This is exactly what every hospital tells you not to do when you have a kid...

This company will eventually get sued by some parent whose kid will choke on milk because the parent wasn't paying attention...

Plot twist, the baby grows up to kill the parents for neglecting it at feeding time.


Babies always remember...

This probably the most pathetic thing I have ever seen. How fucking attached to social media are you that you cannot go a few minutes without it while feeding your child.

Not to rain on everyone's sanctimony parade, but why is this worse than watching TV while feeding the baby, which every parent does sometimes? I'm not saying you should be on your phone every second you feed the baby, but if you're feeding the kid as much as one does during the first few weeks, there's nothing wrong with seeking a little entertainment.

EDIT: As my wife said, ever tried to stay awake at 3AM feeding your baby? Sometimes you need something to focus on.
