Baby Bath Tub Introduction
You will most likely want a bath to bathe your infant in before he or she is able to sit up in the kitchen sink or regular bath tub. You will have many options when it comes to choosing a baby bath tub for your infant and possibly toddler.
Depending on what you need in a bath will determine which one will work best for you and your baby.
There are baby bath tubs that you can use from the time that your baby is a newborn to the time that he or she is a toddler.
There are some baby bath tubs that can only be used when a baby is younger or older but often have a custom fit or special qualities about the bath.
Some times it is difficult deciding on something you need for your baby because you will not know what his or her preferences will be.
This can lead to a purchase of a newborn specific bath that loses its need after a couple of weeks. This is one thing that is great about versatile baby bath tubs.
With dozens of baby brands and even dozens of varieties of baths it is hard to determine what is practical and what is gimmicky.
We strongly encourage parents to read reviews of baby bath tubs that they are interested in. While we attempt to show all that is available, by featuring something we are in know way are suggesting that it is the best choice or even adequate.
Top 3 Best Baby Bath Tub Reviews
Because there are so many options available, we rounded up top 3 infant bath tubs that give you the facts and make your shopping process a lot easier. The list is as follows:
1. PRIMO EuroBath, Pearl White
Primo claims that the “PRIMO Eurobath is the only bath tub you’ll ever need”. It might just be true!
PRIMO EuroBath comes in white and blue. The design is what sets this baby tub apart from the rest. It fits in any standard size bathtub.
There are 2 positions you can use – one for your 0-6 month old and then another for the infant when they are 6-24 months of age.
There are safety supports for the arms and legs so your infant or toddler doesn’t slip under the water. Features a built in drain, 2 areas for soap, sponge or shampoo, and it’s quite easy to clean.
Parents say it’s great for toddlers that can sit up on their own and want to play a bit in the water while you are washing them.
Our Rating: (4.5 / 5)
- Can be hanged
- Keeps baby comfy and safe for months on the
- Empties fast and easily
- Actually saves water
- No mold issues
- A little bit expensive
2. Leachco Safer Bather Infant Bath Pad
It is very soft, supportive and really conforms to the baby so there is no concern about him sliding around!
Initially, I was concerned about drying time, but all you have to do is hang it up after bath time and it dries VERY quickly!
Then you can easily hang it in the shower or on the back of the door to store it until next time! No nasty plastic tub to keep clean and store.
The type of foam allows for the water to drain out easily and fast.
It is very convenient and doesn’t take up much space like other baby bath contraptions.
Our Rating: (4.2 / 5)
- Attractive in design.
- Safe and slip free.
- Very easy to bathe your baby.
- Sturdy hook for easy drying and storage.
- Soft, cozy and comfortable for baby.
- It does get a mildew smell if it doesn’t dry properly, but that’s solved by washing it every week or so on gentle cycle.
3. Puj Flyte – Compact Infant Bath
This is the best baby bath for the go. Take a look at how it folds in half to nicely suit your baby bag! This is truly an incredible design.
The item is non-absorbent making it very easy to wipe clean on the go. BPA and toxin free, it is made with safety in mind.
You can quickly expand it and use it in most sinks. The disadvantages are expense (it’s a bit pricey) and age limit as it will only hold your baby safely till 16.5 pounds.
So this is best for babies on the go, not a great long term solution though.
Our Rating: (4 / 5)
- It’s small, easy for storage and clean.
- It fits into a sink.
- It holds baby better than the larger tubs.
- High quality materials. Very soft pad that does not absorb water.
- Very portable. Easily hangs out of the way to dry
- Weight limit is 17 lbs.
- You really aren’t supposed to put that much water in this tub.
- The baby slides down. This really makes it a challenge to bathe the baby because you’re trying to hold the baby up with one hand while washing them with the other.
Best Baby Bath Tub Buying Guide
Some of the most common types of baby bath tubs include ones that are designed to last from the first bath as a newborn to the last bath as a toddler.
While most are made of a hard plastic, cushioned baths are available. Such baths are occasionally designed to double as a napping crib or place for the baby to sit, and made with a quick drying material.
If you plan to bathe your baby in the kitchen sink after your child can sit up unassisted most likely you will not need to worry about getting a baby bath for when your child is a toddler.
However, you may find this necessary if once your child has grown out of bathing in the sink he or she is much too active to safely take a bath in the regular bath tub.
This is something that we have personally seen and as a result found great use in an inflatable bath to use in the big bath tub for an older baby and toddler.
If you find your baby is unhappy by being reclined during bath time then a tub that is angled so the baby is sitting up may be a good choice, such as bowl baths, a See Me Tub and a Puj Tub.
