This Hip Tip was originally published in the March 11-17, 1999 issue of Westword. It seemed at the time to be the perfect solution to a new parents' need for the latest baby gear, and society's need for better baby discipline. In the decade since then, advancements in the snack-food-additive industry have largely replaced the need for using physical constraint in children's behavior. You've come a long way, baby!
