Suggested by Kathleen Neary of Kensington, Md.

Say you're carrying a baby and you need to use a public restroom stall. What do you do with the baby? Obviously you can't leave the baby outside the stall, because there's no telling what kind of sicko pervert or U.S. senator might be hanging around. But if you take the baby into the stall, what do you do with him or her?

The answer is, you suspend your baby from the stall wall, using this clever device. While you're doing your business, your baby hangs there on the wall like a cute li'l mini-paratrooper, looking happy as a clam, if he or she is anything like the professional baby used in the promotional photos for this item.

We assume you could also use this product to suspend your baby from fences, cubicle dividers, art galleries, volleyball nets -- anywhere you need to suspend a baby.
