Instead of making babies the traditional way, or using designer
why not go to Walmart and buy mass produced babies?
Mass production will help ensure good value for money by the
strength of mass production of vat grown systems. Plus growing
babies at scale would allow for
more variety of shoppers of
different economic background who can't necessarily afford the
expensive designer babies services.
INFANTS FOR SALE AT WALMART
Short story I contributed to a while ago [mofosyne, Nov 30 2017]

||[marked-for-deletion] not an idea. Sorry.
||I suppose as an investment you need a healthy one with big economic potential. So buying one with that pedigree is not a bad idea. Otherwise they would seem to be just another messy pet.
||[norm] I think the CREATE button on the Walmart website
doesn't create an actual baby. But you never know.
||Re. MFD, surely "grow babies in vats and retail them through
Walmart" *is* an idea - just not a particularly attractive one.
||Brave New World had bottles, not vats. Vats suggest growing a
few large volumes of tissue, and then assembling many babies
from them, presumably with nanobot magic. Would this mass
production give you problems with their immune systems, or
would the genetic similarity of the babies prevent such problems?
