Bath Must-Haves For Fun in the Tub
January 16, 2017
Bath time with baby will soon become one of your favorite activities to do together. We want to give you a list of bath must-haves to invest in so you can enjoy this time all the more.
- Bath tubs
When your baby is still tiny, bathing your baby in a sink is great so you can have better control over the splashing and bathtime fun. Here are some of our favorite bathtub options:
I used this tub with all three of my babies and loved it. It is easy to use and especially easy to store. It snaps together easily and unsnaps flat for easy storage.
Not only does this tub include a thermometer so you’ll know how warm the water is, it also keeps a steady flow of clean water into the tub.
Now, doesn’t this bathtub look comfy! If you are looking for a soft bathtub that you can lay inside a sink, this is the one to use.
Or, if you’d prefer to bathe them in the bathtub, try these extra sturdy models:
With a canopy back, and a holder for you to place baby’s body wash, this is a good, inexpensive alternative.
This is a bathtub that you can use up until your baby is a toddler and includes a soft slingback for a newborn use that can eventually be removed.
- Bath soap
This brand’s line of products are as natural as you can get with an over-the-counter product. This wash is free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oil, petrolatum, artificial fragrances or dyes. You’ll feel good bathing your baby in these bubbles.
This is another great option if you are looking for something that is safe for the tiniest newborn and toddler and extra-gentle for sensitive skin. It also smells yummy – it’s a blend of Lavender and Rosemary (slightly sweet and tropical with hints of coconut and lavender).
This product contains oatmeal to moisturize and relieves dry skin and moisturizes it for up to 24 hours. Clean and simple.
- Bathtime Accessories
You don’t want to forget to add more bathtime accessories to make it extra enjoyable for baby. Of course, you’ll want some washcloths, bath towels and body lotion to help round out bath time. We like body lotion that comes in a pump, so you can keep one hand on baby at all times.
Bath toys are also a good idea to keep baby distracted so you can give them a good cleaning. Squishy bath toys that float are entertaining for them to look at, stacking bath toys are fun when they can sit up, and these foam alphabet letters are easy for babies to hold and stick to the tub when they get wet.
With these bath tips, we know you will love this special time with your baby at bath time! What are your favorite bathtime routines and products?
