A bathtub is one of the things that help to make bath-time a time of happiness or a time of fear with lots of crying. This is why it is important to choose a tub that both you and the baby will be happy with.
And if you’re wondering about where you should go to purchase a new bathtub for your child, then my suggestion is to simply go to your local stores and choose one. Why? It’s because when buying there, you will have a chance to experience the product first hand. And that would make it fit better for your child comparing to buying online.
Now, there are some things you need to consider when buying baby tubs:
Look for baby tub that is slipped resistant on the interior, especially where the child’s back will rest and where he/she will sit. This will help to keep the baby from slipping around. Additionally, make sure that beneath it (on the outside) will stay firmly in the position you will place it. That is, that it will not move around when you are using it.
Choose one that is made out of strong plastic, so that you will not have to be concern about it changing its shape after using it once or twice. You can also gently run your fingers around it to make sure that there are no sharp edges on it.
Look for Accessory
Some of them come with a built in holder or two so that you can rest the soap, shampoo etc. in. This will help to keep everything in one location and you will not have to stretch too far to get them.
Look for baby tubs that your child can grow with. Some of them on the market today are suited for the first three stages in the child’s life. That is as a newborn, an infant and a toddler.
Baby tubs are shaped to fit the general shape of the baby. They are semi-reclining which helps support the baby in keeping it in a slightly sitting-up position. However, you must support and hold baby at all times, this is extremely important which help on buying them. You do this by putting your arm around the baby’s back and holding him/her under their armpit.
