Tips to Buying Baby Bath Tubs

There are many factors you are going to want to take into consideration when it comes to buying baby bath tubs that you are going to want to take note of to make sure you buy the best product that is going to give you and baby with the best bath experience.

There are so many great baby bath tubs on the market now, but if you are looking for a tub that you can use from birth to toddler years, then look for one that is convertible. These tubs enable you to use a sling to keep your new baby clothes while bathing. The sling can be removed as the baby ages, so they can use the same tub from new to toddler, saving you money in the long run.

You are also going to want to ensure that the tub you choose is hard plastic. The hard plastic baby bath tubs are easy to clean, they are also mildew resistant. Many of them come with suction cups on the bottom, so you can hold them firmly in place to cut the risk of them sliding.

There are those which are also foldable. If you are limited on space or you travel as a family on a regular basis, you may find these baby bath tubs the most convenient, providing you with an easy solution. Once the tub is drained, it folds into an easily portable tub that you can store away with ease or you can take with you with confidence.

Further, you will find that there are inflatable designs. These are perfect for travel, as you can remove the water and deflate them completely. If you are very limited on space and you feel that even the foldable design will be too big, then this may be the option you are looking for. Just remember when buying inflatable baby bath tubs, that they will need extra cleaning in the long run, as they are not as easy to clean as the harder plastic models.

Some come with a useful colour changing plug, which can be a useful tool for a new parent. The plug will change colour if the water is too hot, this will help you make sure that you don’t make the bath too hot for your new baby. Some even come with a most fill line, helping you know how full to make the bath to bathe your baby with ease each and every day.

Ensure any baby bath tub you choose comes with a smooth rim. The smooth rim will help you bathe baby without injuring yourself and also make sure that you cannot injure baby when putting them in or taking them out of the bath at any time.

You will also want to ensure, whether you buy a hard plastic baby bath tub or an inflatable tub that the surface is non slip. Once you have the baby smothered in soap, you don’t want them slipping or sliding around the bath.

The last factors you are going to want to consider is to always focus on the cleaning and storage of the baby bath tub. This will help you find which design is the best choice for you. The last thing is to check you get the right size based on your baby’s age.
