I Think We're Gonna Need A Bigger Doodad Shelf


So I got a little sick of bottles strewn across the counter and little rubber valves slipping between the drying rack, and I bought a Skip*Hop Splash bottle rack and brush combo [Wow, $28? Seems a little pricey, but then again, it's perfect giftbait for a registry or shower. Well played, Skip*Hop.]


Needless to say, once you fill it up, it does not look remarkably like a classic, stop-motion photograph of a drop of milk splashing into a bowl anymore; it looks like an explosion of bottles and doodads.

Also, I love that the bottom shelf is actually called a "doodad shelf". Though if you use Ventaire bottles, realize that you have 2x as many doodads as other brands, so you'll stick them wherever you can.

Buy a Skip*Hop Splash bottle rack & brush for just $26.25, shipped, no tax, from Amazon OR do what I did, and Get a Splash at Buy Buy Baby for $28 + $3 tax, + $10 cab fare, + $2 return train. Knucklehead. [amazon]


Just don't forget to wash that doodad shelf once in awhile. It gets awfully goopy down there after enough stuff has dripped down from the drying items higher up.

I have this and with 3 kids under 2 I definitely need a bigger doodad shelf, but more importantly,I replaced the brush with a two-sided Munchkin brush that has a nipple cleaner at one end. It still fits in the holder but it actually cleans all the pieces.

We loved ours. I agree with the comment above - wash it often. It comes apart so easily and you can toss it right in the dishwasher.
