Baby Bathtub Reviews:

One of the joys of parenthood is to give your newborn or infant a bath. They are so small and so cute at that age. Babies generally enjoy taking a bath as the water is soothing to them. My mom used to wash her kids in the kitchen sink but now parents are able to buy baby bath tubs which fit little ones much better. All the baby baths have a slight inclined seat or area where the baby lays down and many have a spongy, or padded surface for their back and neck. A few have deeper tubs than others, but most of the infant bathtubs we saw are designed with safety in mind. The PRIMO EuroBath and the The First Year's Infant To Toddler Tub are the top sellers on Amazon.com and get excellent reviews from owners. The top brands include Fisher Price, Safety 1st, Leachco, Dream Baby, The First Years, and Primo. Expect to spend from $20 to $45 for a good quality baby bathtub.

Which baby bathtub is best? Almost all of the regular bathtubs for babies received positive feedback from parents in both online forums and in customer comments left on websites like Amazon.com. A few of the baby bath seats like the Dream Baby Fold Away Bath Seat and the Safety 1st Tubside Bath Seat got less favorable reviews. The new inflatable baby bath tubs like Safety 1st Kirby Inflatable Tub get near perfect reviews and having tried this one myself, it does a pretty good job once your infant can sit up on their own. You inflate the portable bathtub and place it in your regular tub. Just add water and let your toddler sit up and play while you wash them. There are even soaking tubs - Prince Lionheart has one called a washPOD and it's completely different than the other styles of baby tubs. Some come with digital thermometers so you know what the water temperature is at all times. The Fisher Price baby bath tub has some toys attached to keep the baby busy while they get cleaned up. You'll find that your infant will move their arms and legs in the water and splash a bit. Stores like Target and Babies R Us carry all types of bath bath tubs.

Top Rated Baby Bathtub:

When it comes to baby bathtub reviews, the The First Year's Infant To Toddler Tub with Sling gets the most and at around $20 it's a great deal given the positive feedback listed online. It's really 2 tubs in one as it works with infants and toddlers. When you baby is really young, use the sling and foam pads to help cradle your infant during bath time. The upright backrest is the support you'll need when your toddler hops in. The innovative drain plug actually alerts parents if the water is too hot. It will fit in single or double sinks as well as in bathtubs. The sling is machine washable and dryable and the actual tub is easy to clean.


Inflatable Baby Bath Tub:

A somewhat newer product on the market are the inflatable bathtubs for babies like the Safety 1st Kirby Inflatable Tub in Blue. The Safety 1st baby bathtub is designed for a self sitting child and prevents them from toppling over. It's made of soft vinyl and the drain plug on the bottom lets you quickly drain the tub when done. Just rinse and wash it out then let it hang dry from a wall. We read solid reviews from parents with infants that were 7 to 14 months old that said the inflatable baby tub is a "great product".
