Here is a cute little wooden box that lets you store a bunch of crap that fell off your baby

What do you do when your baby starts shedding things like umbilical cords, creepy baby hair, and teeth? You keep it all, of course. What else would you do with that garbage? Throw it away?

No way! Moms don’t throw stuff away, we’re professional hoarders. Especially when it comes to the decaying matter that falls off our children. If you need a new way to store all this crap, you’re in luck!

This exists.

It’s a wooden box that looks like a smiling baby, but then you open it and there is so much more.

SO much more.

Not only does this wooden box store all your baby’s teeth, labeled, it also has a spot for the umbilical cord and lanugo.

Do you like how I just flippantly mentioned “Lanugo” like I know what the HELL that is? I don’t. I had to Google it.

HUH? What? Come again? Was I supposed to buff that off and save it? I’m so confused.

When my baby’s umbilical cord finally fell off, it looked like a odd-shaped piece of beef jerky. My cat tried to eat it. There was no fiber of my maternal being that cried, “Save it!”

I did keep my son’s first baby tooth, and I have no idea why. I don’t have the first baby tooth I lost as a child, and I don’t feel like there is anything missing in my life because of it. Also, if my mother handed me a box with every tooth I had ever lost, labeled with their correct names, I would throw it in the trash.

But, to each her own! If you don’t think this is the weirdest shit you’ve ever seen, you can order it on Amazon! ( And it’s eligible for Prime — yesss.)
