Condoms only have about about an 85% effectiveness rating (although, to be clear, it’s more like 98% if you use them perfectly correctly), but you know what the best birth control of all is? Being around babies/kids. They WILL eventually annoy or exhaust you, and they WILL give you the opposite of baby fever.

One condom company, Skyn, has come up with an ingenious way to reduce your baby fever even further. They invented a Chrome plugin that will automatically block babies of newborns and toddlers on your social media feed. The plugin replaces the baby photos with photos of other things – landscapes, cars, food, whatever.

A press release from Skyn explains that the plug-in was prompted by the birth of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby Archie, which has apparently led to a flood of baby photos on people’s timelines.

“Numerous baby photos are being shared every hour on Facebook and this is bound to increase over the coming weeks,” explained the company.

“Sexual wellness company Skyn has launched a simple free‐to‐download Google Chrome extension, allowing people to opt‐out of the predictable frenzy of baby photos, following a much-awaited birth.”

The company went on to say that parents share an average of 1500 photos of their kids from birth to age five, which, WOW. For some people, all these photos “might be a little bit too much.”

“The Baby Blocker was created for them: a simple and fun way to swap baby photos in your feed for images of other things you might like.”

So, for all the curmudgeons who are tired of seeing their friends’ kids’ happy little faces, you now have a way to make Facebook usable again — without offending anyone!
