Shittens are a real thing—have we reached a new low in parenting?

There is a new invention out there for parents and it's called Shittens! Yes, you read that right. We aren't sure if this is the best invention ever or totally ridiculous.

We aren’t sh*ttin’ you, Shittens—mittens for wiping up… well, sh*t—are totally real.

As all parents know, babies are messy—especially when it comes to their poop. On average, a newborn will go through about 8-12 diapers a day, and those poops can seem toxic to first-time parents. We don’t even want to think about the dreadful moment when the diaper just can’t hold it all in and there’s suddenly a river of poo up your baby’s back and dripping down her leg. *shudder*

That’s where Shittens come in handy. Nobody wants to accidentally get tiny turd smears on their fingers during a diaper change, and now you won’t have to.

The disposable mitten-shaped wipes are baby-safe and eco-friendly, and can easily be removed without mess using the same method you’d use with a bag of dog poop. Speaking of dog poop, these are also the perfect solution for when you step in some doody and need to clean your shoe.

Parenthood is messy and sometimes you literally get poop on your hands—you just have to deal. People are clearly into Shittens, though, because they have a 4.5 rating on Amazon. However, at 20 mitts per pack, you’ll probably want to save these bad boys for those particularly disastrous doodies.

So to all you squeamish parents out there, Shittens will be your saviour. You’re welcome.

What do you think—are Shittens a genius parenting invention or totally over-the-top?
