Baby Bath Tub

Find a great small bathtub for your bathroom. Learn about what to look for first.

Are you in need of a baby bath tub for your newborn?  You’re in for a great time if the answer is yes.

A bundle of joy is always a welcome addition to any household. When one is on the way, you plan and read all the books you can find on parenting and do all of the little things to make life as close to normal as it has been. The reality on ground after the baby arrives however is not quite the same as what you might have envisioned. Still, one of the most important decisions you have to make has to do with selecting a baby bath tub to wash your child in.

If you are like me, you want something very safe and effective for the little one. You know that lady thing about first babies. However, there are some guidelines you can follow if you’re about to make a decision about a baby bathtub to purchase.

  1. The baby is unlikely to be able to sit very well on her own within the first six or so months. You will have to get a baby bath seat that has a contoured design that can comfortably hold the baby while in the bath. You can also go for a baby bath tub that has an internal sling that is also designed to hold the baby in place while you give her a bath.

  2. Most of the baby bathtubs that have these contoured designs have foam padding. Normally this would be susceptible to mildew due to the water contact but then you should make sure that the toddler bath tub you buy is mildew resistant. This does not mean, however, that you should not clean and dry it after each use.

  3. If you do not have much space in your home, you may want to consider a folding baby bathtub. This way, you can simply fold it up after each use and stow it away until the next use. However, if space is not your problem, the regular baby bath tubs should do just fine.

  4. There are newfangled things in the baby bath tub market. One of them is a baby seat, or even the inflatable baby bath tub. You are advised to steer clear of these as they constitute a rather dangerous problem for kids. There have been reported cases of babies slipping and falling in a baby seat while in the bath, leading to death. This is a risk that you obviously do not want on your hands.

  5. You might want to go for a baby bathtub with a drain plug. This will help you get the water out of the infant bath tub pretty fast after giving the baby his or her bath.

  6. One of the newfangled things I mentioned earlier has to do with in-tub gadgets such as temperature indicators. Although these would have been nice to have as a way of testing and regulating temperature, they are not so practical. It is best for you not to worry about them. Simply go for the regular baby bath tub.

  7. Again, if you’re pressed for space, you should look for a tub that has a hook. This allows you to hang it in order to store it or even dry it.
