TikToker Abbie Wiz (@momma_wiz) is busy mom, daycare director and content creator who often shares everyday life clips and parenting tips. Recently, Wiz posted a video explaining baby products that she deems necessary and unnecessary for parents, and even people without children heed his advice.

She explains that in her experience as a nanny, parent and daycare manager, she has “seen it all and used it all” and is here to tell parents what some products she thinks which ones are worth it and which ones are not.
The clip cuts to a green-screen shot of Wiz in front of two baby towel ads. “These are one of my least favorite Baby productssays Wiz emphatically, noting that they’re paper-thin, don’t keep your baby dry, and are expensive.

Additional products Wiz claims parents can “do without” include baby Car seat awnings because “you’ll forget about them”.
Wiz mentions that travel playmats are “an adorable waste of money” and reception blankets are like “flexible cardboard”.
When it comes to bibs, Wiz has “not yet met the baby which spits just small enough to fit on one”, before noting that they are not absorbent and the spit drips out of them.
Wiz ends the video with a product that gets his approval: muslin swaddle blankets. She recommends buying as many muslin swaddle blankets as possible because “they will replace all the products” she previously mentioned.
Parents and non-parents took to the comments to share their thoughts on Wiz baby product failure.
“Yes! Babe towels are worthless and muslin blankets are EVERYTHING,” one parent said.
“Me without children and without the intention of [have them] anytime soon: ‘Mmm yes helpful I’m going to record this’,” one TikToker joked.
“[I] 100% agree. I have a 10 [month old]. It was all wasted money,” another parent shared.
Although Wiz’s advice is helpful, it should only be used as a guide, as all babies and parents have different needs when it comes to essentials.
