There's A New Baby Wipe On The Market And It's Name Is So Appropriate It Hurts

Babies are messy. You're allowed to say it. You can love your baby but hate the mess, that's fine. They throw food, they spit up everywhere, and they poop more than they eat. It's just the way it goes.

Sometimes, you can be caught unprepared for a disaster. Luckily, there are people in the world who want to help you out. One woman, only identified as Sarah, left a stack of diapers and wipes in a public bathroom for the parents who find themselves in a "pickle."

If the disaster is too big for wipes, however, your hands can be at risk for poop and other bodily fluids that no one wants to touch, even if it belongs to your own baby. That's why these new innovative wipes are becoming so popular. It helps that they have a hilarious name, too.

Introducing "Shittens!" The wipes shaped like mittens so that mom and dad don't have to risk their hands for the sake of a clean baby. The tagline? "'Cause poop is gross!"

The website says it's not just poop that you're being protected from.

"While old fashioned, square wet wipes put your hands at risk for all kinds of accidental fecal contamination, the genius mitten shape of a Shitten provides not only safety from poop, but on a larger scale, emotional peace of mind," the company claims.

The product started as an IndieGoGo campaign, and when they finally launched, sold out almost immediately.

In theory, Shittens are a wonderful, clean product that is bound to change your life.

However, some users say it's not as practical as it seems.

"The mitten is so thin that fecal fluid soaked right through. Because you wear it like a glove and don't fold it over, your hand is only a thin layer away from fecal matter and you can see the remnants inside the glove and smell it on your hands," one user wrote on Amazon. "This is a fundamental flaw that make this product less useful and much more expensive than standard baby wipes."

Would you give Shittens a chance?
