Bling for babies
What's your most expensive parenting product?
Scott Dunlop

You think you spend a lot of money on parenting your kids? One of our bloggers has found a way to relieve the stress most of us feel when it comes to finances.

Sanna hasn’t found the secret to making children cheaper to care for, but she has managed to track down some of the most expensive baby accessories on the planet.

Got the baby-budget blues? Take a quick look at what babies born with platinum spoons in their mouths are enjoying:

The world’s most expensive nappy bag:
It’s Louis Vuitton, naturally, with the classic LV monogram, but not too much else apart from a changing mat and some pockets for bottles.
It costs R17,336 ($2,200).

That’s modest, compared to the world’s most expensive dummy:

It features a silicone nipple sporting over 278 pave cut diamonds totalling 3 carats. The pacifier is also made with 14k white gold and has a moveable handle.
The most expensive pacifier in the world can be customized with coloured diamonds, the baby’s name, birth date and other vital information.
Only: R133,960 ($17,000).

But what baby could sport a dummy like that unless he’s out in public in the world’s costliest stroller?

The Roddler is modelled on classic 50s cars, and can be customised with a range of leather covers. A giveaway, at only R 27,580 ($3,500).

Thanks, Sanna, for reminding us that no matter how much we feel like complaining, our kids are getting some great bargains!
