Does anyone want to guess the purpose of this (possibly glamorous) baby-related product I picked up in Paris? I'll post the answer this weekend.

    Yay I'm first today!

    Since the product is French, I'm guessing it's to feed your baby wine? Just kidding!

    Hilarious! Yes, possibly a way to develop the taste for wine early and help with teething pain all at the same time ;)

    Is that one of those nose suction thingies? I saw one once and thought it was just too weird. Have you tried it??

    If it's the same thing, we have these here too and they work wonderfully once you get over the ewww factor :-) (I won't give it away LOL)

    Ooh, I know I know. I'm a huge fan and my mother is always under strict instructions to bring a few back whenever she visits her house in France. They are a lifesaver with a baby who can't feed because of a blocked nose...

    I thought it's makeshift bottle attached to the nipple but that's definitely not it. I'm actually clueless! Looking forward to reading the answer

    Not wine, surely? It looks like some kind of variation on a breast pump but we all know there's nothing glamorous about that activity! I'm baffled.

    As much as it grosses me out, I'm going to guess that it's a snot sucker. eww.

    I think I know.. It's used for baby congestion and involved mom/dad's mouth and baby's nose, right? :)

    Never seen one, but since it involves babies, I'm going to guess it involves some sort of bodily fluid. Nasal syringe? That seems the least offensive:)

    I'm with Karen, it looks like some kind of breast pump, but that's not glamorous. I'm stumped.

    A chic breast pump as only the French would do. And being French it is probably used for those occasions such as sitting in a chic cafe or on the plane??????

    That's got to be a breast pump of some sort - thank God my breast feeding days are over!

    Yup, nose sucker -- we have two. Well, slightly different design. I refuse to use them (preferring a bulb aspirator instead) but my wife uses them on both babies whenever little noses are blocked up.
