      Cheap enough that you don't mind throwing it after baby has outgrown it!

      When I had my second baby I decided that I wanted to get a bath seat as I didn't want to give my toddler a bath and then my little girl a bath separately and I knew with both of them in the bath together I needed to have my hands free for them both!

      I found this bath seat in Tesco's it was around £10, which seemed a reasonable price. I bought the pink version and had a nice flowery pattern on it that looked very girly. The seat was made of a mesh material and looked quite comfortable for a baby. It also had a padded headrest which was ideal for a newborn this could also be taken off and washed which was useful. The base was also non-slip so I didnt need to worry about it sliding along the bath when filled with water! And finally it had to seating positions one that was lay back a bit more, which I fund useful when she was a newborn and then one that sits them slightly higher when they have a bit more head control.

      There were a few annoying things about this bath seat. Firstly the actual seat was quite high up and so it meant you needed to run the bath quite deep to keep your baby in the water. I usually like to keep it quite low just because I also have my toddler in there and don't want him slipping under. Secondly I found that the mesh material became dirty quite quickly, even though it was always dried after use. By the time my baby was around 5 months old we had to throw it as it was starting go mouldy and the bottom which sat in the bath water had gone orange!

      I suppose we cant complain too much as it was cheap and it did do the job of supporting my baby while she was in the bath so I had both hands free to clean both of my children.

      I would recommend this as it was helpful and my baby seemed quite comfortable in it. However if your after something that's going to last through two or three children then I think you'd be better of buying a plastic seat as these are a lot easier to clean!

      A nice idea for bathtime

      Before Jayden was born we decided not got purchase him a baby bath but buy him a seat for our bath instead, that way he would be used to going into a large bath from day one. We had a look around and came across the Tesco Summer Infant Deluxe Baby Bather, it was suitable to use from birth and easy to store, it was ideal for what we were looking for, I was hoping it was going to make bath times easy allowing me to have two hands free to wash Jayden and know that he was safe in his bath seat.

      The Baby Bather came in a large cardboard box, there were pictures of the bath seat on all sides of the box along with the name of it and facts about the product, the seat inside the box came wrapped in clear polythene to help protect it, there was also a small instruction leaflet inside the box. Unfortunately I cannot remember the exact details of the packaging as it was disposed of a while ago, however I do know that the seat came in one piece inside the box meaning no assembly was required. The box was bright and colourful and the pictures gave a clear description of what the product inside was going to look like so there was no doubt as to what you were purchasing.

      The Deluxe Baby Bather is basically a baby seat that is designed for the bath, the seat is reclined back with the foot part slightly raised, the whole seat is made from a blue material designed to look like water and is covered with brightly coloured fish, there is a small bean bag style cushion at the top of the seat for your baby to rest their head on, the outer part of the cushion is a bean bag and made from blue material to match the seat, the centre part is made from a soft yellow coloured material and has a large fish on it to match the design of the seat. The seat also comes in pink too so there is something to suit both boys and girls.

      The seat is made from a metal frame to make to strong and sturdy, however all of the metal parts of the frame are covered with the material to help protect your baby from injury. The whole seat is mounted on a blue square plastic base which keeps the seat in place when in the bath, there is a metal bar at the back of the seat which clips into a slot in the base, this allows you to recline the seat and also prevent it from folding up when your baby is seated in it.

      The fabric that the seat is made from is designed to be quick drying, mildew resistant and also machine washable making caring for the seat very easy so there is no worry of parts of the seat going mouldy through constant contact with water.

      The cushion on the back of the seat is adjustable so you can alter it as your baby grows, this holds their head in place it is none slip and supports your baby's head for added safety whilst your baby is in the bath. The seat is also has two seat positions, you can have the seat reclined back, this is ideal for very young babies who cannot hold themselves up meaning they cannot slip out of the seat, you can also have the seat a little more upright which is ideal for your baby as they get older allowing them to interact with you more and play with bath toys.

      The base of the seat is also non slip which keeps the seat in place and it will not move around as you are washing your baby.

      The Deluxe Baby Bather is described as being suitable to use from birth and can be used on a child up to 11Kg, this means that your baby can get use to going into a regular bath right from the start rather than using a baby bath first and then having to introduce the to the adult bather later on, this was the main reason we opted for a bath seat rather than Jayden having his own bath for the first few months. The Deluxe Baby Bather is very easy to store, it simply folds up so that it is more or less flat, you simply release the bar at the back of the chair that reclines it and fold the chair forward so that the seat goes flat against the base, because the seat dries so quickly and can fold flat means it can easily and quickly be put away and stored. As I have mentioned there is no assembly required with the bath seat it simply arrives folded up. The seat is not bulky at all and is very light making moving it around easy, the Deluxe Baby Bather measures 36.5cm in height, 7.5cm wide, 33.0cm deep and weighs 1.38Kg, even when not folded up the chair is not bulky but would be a bit difficult to store that way.

      As I have mentioned the Deluxe Baby Bather is from Tesco, we purchased ours online and it cost us just £15.00, personally I thought this was an excellent price as similar bath seats are available in other stores and are often more expensive, this was definitely the best priced seat we found. The bath seat can be used for quite some time and your baby will get a lot of use out of it making it excellent value for money.

      I would highly recommend the Tesco Deluxe Baby Bather it is an excellent product and we have already had quite a lot of use out of it. We did try and use the seat when Jayden was first born however we did find that he slumped a lot in it and would slip so we did actually give up with it and it was put away for a few weeks and just held Jayden in the bath and washed him, however once he was a little bit bigger and older he got a bit too fidgety to hold in the bath so we got the seat out again.

      Once Jayden was a little bit older the seat was perfect it meant we had two hands to wash him with and he was fully supported and sat safely in the bath, he hated the bath to start with but he is now starting to enjoy it a bit more so the seat means he can sit a bit longer in the bath without having to be held.

      The bath seat is strong and sturdy so I am confident that Jayden is safe in it and cannot fall into the water and the reclining seat allows me to position it so that Jayden is comfortable and cannot slip out.

      For me the only disadvantage with this product is that I do find that Jayden does still slip down a little in the seat, now he is older he fidgets about and kicks his legs in the water meaning he does gradually move down the seat a little, also there are no proper sides to the seat that would prevent your baby from leaning over the edge, I would never leave Jayden unsupervised in the seat just in case he went over the edge of it, however this would not stop me from using the product.
      The bath seat is very reasonably priced and is excellent value for money, and I love the fact that the material dries so quickly and will not go mouldy. This is definitely a product that I will continue to use and would recommend to anyone.

      Not the best baby bath seat out there

      I spent alot of time looking around at different baby baths and bath seats before my daughter was born and ended up deciding on this one, one because it was a nice pink colour with pretty patterns and two because it was made of a netted material it looked like it would be more comfortable than a hard plastic one. it was priced at about £15 so not much more expensive than others on the market.
      I decided on a seat as i was a bit nervous about holding her in the bath with one hand and washing her with another, so this was ideal and as it suckered to the bottom of the bath there was no chance of it going anywhere so really gave me peace of mind.
      However when i started using it i noticed was that it sat quite high in the bath and my daughter was nowhere near the water, we ended up having to fill the bath to higher than i would have liked really to get her used to being in the water and to keep her from geting cold.
      Also when trying to collapse it down again it was very stiff and differcult (i thought the plastic was going to snap and we would break it) so we ended up leaving it up all the time which was annoying as it ended up living in the bottom of the shower or bath as there was nowhere else in the bathroom for it and was constantly having to be moved when other people were washing. Also when we went away we either didn't take it either as it would take up alot of room in the car.
      It is made of fabric which you cant take off and wash (at least i never figured out how) and even though it isn't suppose to ours got mouldy quite quickly (maybe after 3 or 4 months) so when my daughter had grown out of it (when she was able to sit by herself 7 months ish) we had to throw it away.
      I am now i'm expecting number 2 and will have to get a new seat and neadless to say it wont be one of these. I have used one of the plain plastic ones when visiting friends and it doesn't look as nice but my daughter never complained and as there in for such a short time i think i will be getting one of these this time round.

      Easy to use and very handy to have

      I like this baby bather and think it is very useful for newborns.

      I paid £15 for this which is a reasonable price but didn't use it for long. I bought this instead of buying a baby bath and it was definately the right decision.

      This seat just sticks to the bottom of the bath and then you just lay your baby on it. It has two reclined positions and is the seat is made of soft material so it is nice and comfortable for the baby. It has a head hugger as well so keeps your baby in place.

      I think it is great for newborns as you can be confident you are not going to drop them and have your hands free to wash them and it makes bathing newborns a lot easier.

      The material is thin so it dries out really quickly when you take it out of the bath which is good and it is very easy to open and close it so it can be stored flat.

      I did not use it for long though because once your baby can move about it is not really safe because you have to hold them all the time so when they can sit up a bath seat is better but for newborns this is great.

      I used it for a few months and it is in perfect condition so it can definately be used again and the colour and pictures on it have not faded at all so it still looks brand new.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great bath time aid.

      After bathing my daughter for the first few times I found she did not like it so looked for something that would make it a little easier on both my back and her. While shopping around I found this bathing seat in my local Tesco and decided it looked perfect. It was so pink and flowery it looked so cute and girly.

      To assemble it it just required the cloth to be hooked over some poles that easily fit together and once this was done it looked rather like a baby bouncer. There is a rubber base at the bottom to stick it to the bath to make sure it does not move around although this is not always the case. The seat its self is a mesh type material that lets the water run through it easily.

      The seat is rather large and is only intended for normal baths. It can be sat in to different positions easily so it is suitable from birth as it can lay flat right up till when baby can sit unaided. I found that it fits a newborn well but also looks comfy for her as she got older and a little heavier. I also received a head support that I used while she was little but after a few weeks I found it irritated her and she seemed happy without it.

      My negatives about this bath support is that the rubber base is meant to be non slip but i have found it to slide a little on more than one occasion not dangerously so but enough to give me a fright. Also it says it can be packed flat but even so it is still a large item to store and with a tiny bathroom like mine having to dry the mesh netting then take it down and put it back in the bag is a bit of a hassle for me.

      The seat does give a lot of support which is brilliant for both comfort for baby but also for mum having to hold baby and keep them safe while doing a 100 and 1 things at the same time. Saying that little one should never be left alone while using the seat. Although it does have it negatives I would still recommend this seat as it is a great aid and I have continued using it for my son even though it is pink he will probably tell me off when he is older lol.

      Bathe in style

      I had decided upon using one of these deluxe baby bathers before my daughter was born. I had thought about using a normal baby bath, but I couldn't get to grips with the thought of only holding my daughter with one arm whilst trying to wash her. The thought actually scared me. I was so worried that she would slip out of my arm, being a first time mum I didn't know what it would be like but I was terrified.


      I decided to try and find an alternative to the normal small plastic bath and opted for the deluxe baby bather. The colour I chose was pink and it was embellished with flowers in a darker shade of pink. It was very pretty to look at but I wouldn't have been bothered what it looked like as long as it protected my daughter.


      The bather does not require any form of assembly; it is all put together in the box and is small and compact for ideal storage. It folds in half and once opened to form the bather it is securely fixed open so there are no risks of the bather closing once the baby is inside. The bather is made from a mesh material to allow water to come through the underneath. Despite it looking like a rather thin material it is very strong and feels sturdy. There is also a detachable head rest for the baby this provides comfort as well as having the ability to protect the baby's head and keeps it from slipping to the side. This is made from a different material to the initial bather; in the middle there is a soft and almost spongy material which resembles the texture of a flannel. Around the outside of this is cushioned to keep the baby's head in place. This is covered with a plastic type material.


      The bather is designed for newborn babies up until they are able to sit unaided, this age can vary but generally it is around 6 months old. Ours cost £15 pound from babies R us, however the price can vary depending on the type of bather you buy as they come in different ranges and styles.


      Once my daughter was born I didn't use the bather immediately, whilst in the hospital the midwife's shown me how was best to bathe her and they suggested that we were best using the bog standard plastic baby bath. I had a go at bathing her for the first time in the hospital and I was literally unable to let go of her to wash her, it was like my arms were locked in place. If I had gotten any closer to her I would have been in the bath with her. She just felt so slippery and I was really scared that I was going to drop her. I don't know if this was because of my panics about this before she was born or if she really was slippery but in the end I had to let the midwife finish of her bath.


      Once home I did not take the midwife's advice of using a plastic bath as I didn't feel comfortable with those. I had seen those tub things, but personally I didn't like the look of them, I can't deny that they look safe but I actually thought it looked awkward. For the first couple of weeks I opted for sitting in the bath with my daughter whilst my partner washed her. This worked for me but was not totally practical.


      After a couple of weeks I was starting to relax and started to feel a lot more comfortable holding my daughter, I think really that it just took a couple of weeks for my motherly instincts to set in, she was just so small and fragile I would panic about everything.


      One night I decided to give the bather a try, I wasn't really worrying or panicking or anything like that so I felt comfortable using it. I didn't fill the bath up too full so the water was just starting to show through the mesh material. Upon placing my daughter in it I was rather satisfied at the security it provided her. She felt secure in it, her head was held in place and the mesh sinks into the baby's shape so it's not like lying flat or sitting up either it was just secure. I kept hold of her with one arm just to be sure but I was easily able to wash her and for the first time she was able to see the pretty pink duck that her nana had kindly bought her. She had both of her arms free without mine being in the way to be able to hold (and try to eat) her duck.


      The bather has two seat positions, they are not that different but one is a little bit lower than the other. It also has a none slip base which works incredibly well as ours never slipped, it does have to be pressed down securely however before you put your baby inside.


      After a few more weeks I was able to put my daughter in the bather without holding onto her, I have never had any problems with it quality and safety wise. I do however have one small problem with it. Like I previously mentioned the water just covers the base of the bather and does not cover a baby like a normal bath would. This is not a huge problem but as my daughter was a January child it was extremely cold. This was easily dealt with though as we would heat the bathroom up for at least an hour before bath time to ensure it was warm enough.


      I would definitely recommend the deluxe baby bather; it is safe, easy to use and keeps your hands free making washing a lot easier. It also means no fuss of introducing to your baby to the big bath if they are used to being in a smaller one as I have been told by a few people that this can be upsetting and scary for babies.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Easy to use and easy to store away

        I have just got this baby bather out of it's storage hiding place to get it ready for new arrival. I used this with my son after a friend brought it as a pressie when he was born when I showed interest in it whilst looking at a Argos catalogue.
        At the time it cost about £14-15.00 and it now retails in Argos at £15.85.

        For a few weeks my son was bathed in the sink with plenty of room then I went on to using this baby bather.

        The main good points of it are that the baby is supported on it's own, Not so you can go off and leave it alone as that should never be done but so you have 2 hands free for washing and shampooing.

        The bather is lightweight and folds down flat when not in use. The entire cover which is like a fine mesh material can be removed and washed. The head rest can also be removed and washed, this has a soft padding to keep baby comfy and can be adjusted so it is correctly behind babies head.
        Once you have used this make sure you let the air get to it to dry it out to prevent any mould forming.

        This sits steady in the bottom of the bath and doesn't move about but I'm sure it would if the bath was filled up with lots of water.

        I personally found the disadvantage of this was that the baby isn't actually in the water, Unless you fill the bath up quite a bit then their bottom touches the water through the bather. It is nice to share a proper bath with baby so they can appreciate the water better but try to do this when someone else is around so they can help take baby from you to get out safely.

        Whilst you have 2 hands free when using this bather if baby is not liking bath time you can entertain with a toy with one hand whilst cleaning with the other. To clean back area just move baby forward so you can get to area.

        Like I said I will be using this again so it is worth getting one just to make bathing easier.
        My reason for 4 stars though and not 5 is the fact of baby isn't in the water for bathing.

        keep your baby safe and happy for a fun bath

        I had a similar item 10years ago when I had my eldest son, and when I had my second, I new this had to be on my shopping list!

        I bought the Blue version, but I believe it is available in pink for girls, maybe a neutral colour would be a good idea too.

        The seat itself is made from a mesh material that supports your baby as I would imaine a hamock would. It comes with a detachable head support / cushion. The seat has two postions, a lyind down one for younger babies and more of a sitting up one for older babies. The base keeps the seat very sturdy, however I did use a bath mat aswell just to be safe. The seat folds up flat for easy storage and is great for travelling as it takes up little room. To collapse the seat, you need to twist a yellow attachment on the front base to release the front structure and then push the back structure bars together and move them inwards. The seat then folds up lovely!

        I enjoyed filling the bath so it was over my sons legs and introduced bath toys as it is very easy to control your baby with one hand and play with the other!

        The negatives I found were that as my son started to learn to sit up, he would try to do this in his bath seat and could easily have tipped himself out, but Im sure no-one leaves their baby in the bath so it shouldnt be a serious problem. It can be quite difficult to fold up, you have to push the two bars together and move them towards the middle underneath, I found this a bt tricky sometimes!

        I would definatley recommend this item, the price is very reasonable and I used it up until my some could sit up by himself with confidence.

        This will help you at bath time.

        I have been eyeing up this item when I had my daughter but never brought one as I had already brought a baby bath. But once I found out I was pregnant with my second, I knew this was an item I just had to buy. And if anything I had more reason to purchase this item the second time round as I needed to bath my children together and this is a great way to have control over both children while they are in the bath.

        The support retails at around £19.99. I was very lucky and managed to pick up and excellent bargain at my local car boot and managed to get this support for the low price of £1. They are available in two colours, pink and blue.

        The support is a made up of a shaped metal tubing and a plastic base, this is very supportive frame and once the strong mesh covering is placed over the frame it gives the baby a very safe and supportive structure to sit in. There is also a head support which you can use for newborn babies to help with support their head.

        The cover can be machine washed and I would recommend that you take the cover off after use and hang over a radiator to stop it going mouldy.
        My son doesn't cry when placed in it and seems to be very happy and comfortable when placed in the support. The material is very soft and won't rub against your babies skin.

        There are two positions in which you can have the support angled at; one is more up right than the other. The lower position is suitable for a newborn.

        The support is not recommended for babies who can sit up unaided. I would recommend moving on to the aqua pod which is suitable from 6 months. Please feel free to read my review on the Mothercare aqua pod.

        My son and daughter can safely be bathed together and I have both my hands free to wash my daughter hair and to know that my son is safe sitting in he's support. But always make sure they are within arm's reach just in case.

        The support does sit fairly high when sat in the base of the bath. This does mean you do need to fill the bath around 6 inches high. That's the only problem with this product as I would usually only use around 3 inches of water to bath my daughter.
        The support folds down small and comes with its own small bag to transport, this makes it great to take on holiday or round to family if staying overnight.

        I personally don't think it's worth spending £20 on but if like me you manage to get hold of a nearly new one for a very low price then it's definitely worth every penny.

          Not at all deluxe

          When my son was first born we bathed him in a little baby bath. However, as he was such a big baby he outgrew his bath very quickly. I didn't feel comfortable trying to hold him in the big bath with no support, so I went for a browse in Mothercare. I looked at quite a few supports and chose this Deluxe Baby Bather.

          *Appearance*
          The bath is made of a net type fabric. It is a bright blue colour and decorated with colourful little fish designs. I like the appearance of the support as it is bright and cheerful and appeals to young children. My son always enjoyed the fish and would turn his neck so he could see the fish properly.
          The baby bather looks a bit like a deckchair, partly due to the shape and perhaps also because it is made from a net fabric.

          *Features*
          At the top of the bather there is a soft padded head support. This is useful when bathing little babies but I didn't tend to use it when my son got a bit bigger as it annoyed him. The head support is attached to the bather by a long wide piece of fabric, however it can't be removed fully so the only choice is to have it hanging down the back. I would have prefered it if the head support could have been unclipped fully.
          The bather has 2 positions - the back bar adjusts to allow the bather to lie back or sit up. It can be quite tricky to push the bar all the way into the slot and a couple of times I thought it was in when it wasn't. It is a good idea to have different positions. The sitting up position is good for the older baby who wants to look around more, where as the more lying down position is better for the younger baby as it feels safer for them.
          There is a non-slip base that supports the bather. This did work and I am pleased to say the base didn't slip at all.

          *My Opinion*
          When I took it out of the box, I really liked this baby bather. I could see that it would support my son so I could have both hands free to wash him. It made me feel that it would be much safer than trying to hold a slippery baby with one hand whilst washing him properly with the other.
          However, as soon as I put it into the bath I realised that it sits quite high up. This means that in order for your baby to actually touch the bath water the bath needs to be rather full. This goes against the guidelines for the product which state that the bath should only contain a few inches of water or the base might float! If you only have a few inches of water in the bath then the baby only gets wet when you pour water on them, which ruins the whole point of giving them a bath. You might as well just give them a wash. It also means that the baby is likely to get cold and then miserable.

          I chose to fill the bath a little more than recommended so that my son was actually sitting in water and just kept a careful watch to make sure the base didn't start to float! This is by no means ideal and seems rather daft to me. It would have been better if the base was heavier so that there was no risk of it floating.

          Another problem we encountered was how to wash the back of our son. When he was able to support his own head I was able to lean him forward to wash his back and the back of his head, but it certainly wasn't easy. It defeats the purpose of buying this to make bath time easier!

          This product is advertised as being made of mildew-resistant fabric. I didn't find this to be the case at all even though I made an effort to dry it off and look after it well. After around 6 months of use I noticed the fabric was mouldy around the back so I threw it away.
          I won't be buying another one when we have our second child.

            Wish i hadnt wasted money on baby baths and just got this in the first place for both children.

            Whilst i was pregnant with my second child a friend suggested i used this bath bather, I had already brought a regular baby bath so wasnt sure, Anyway she had finished using hers and gave it to me. I have to say it was brilliant, Im so glad she let me use it! Wasted my money on a baby bath for second child. Didnt use it. This seat has a lovely fun design, its made from a mesh sort material and has a comfy pillow for babys head and is to use from newborn. It was great to have both hands free to bathe baby and to feel like your child is snug and secure in a seat. Its easy to store as well as it folds away, Only one bad thing about this chair is that i did find it quite difficult to fold it away, not sure if that was down to me or a problem with the chair, Dont let that put you off though. It was problerly just me!

            I doubt I would bother with one of these next time

            I bought this from Mothercare for £14.99 and thought it looked fantastic as an alternative to a baby bath. You put it in the normal bath so there is no need to fill and empty a baby bath. It looks a bit like a deckchair and is made of mesh material with a pillow to go behing baby's head and a strap to hold him securely in place. It has two positions so it can lie right back or sit up higher and it is ideal because it allows mum or dad to have both hands free to wash baby which is especially useful in the early days when first time parents are all fingers and thumbs anyway! It is a lovely bright blue colour with fish on it and it looks cheerful and colourful - I loved it as soon as I saw it and thought it was a great idea. It is suitable from birth upwards.

            However it did not come with any instructions so I did not know how to recline it and it took me ages to work it out. Also you have to lock it into place and I did not realise that at first, which could have been dangerous. After that I never really felt secure with it and I did not use it for very long as my son much preferred going in the bath with me and splashing about on my knee. He hated the seat so it was an all-round waste of money really, but I still think they are a great idea. One thing I would advise is that you fill the bath up high enough so that if covers baby's tummy otherwise they will get cold and I know most babies like to feel the water around them. Otherwise it is more of a top and tail than a proper bath that baby gets.

            Great bath seat to keep your hands free for washing baby!

            My story - I was pregnant with twins, once they arrived me and my partner used to bath them in the living room in the baby bath. However it was hard because one of them had to be left whilst we both bathed the other one.

            So i decided i needed to find something for the big bath as they were getting too big for the baby one anyway, and needed something which i could bath them on my own safely whilst my partner entertained the other twin.

            I then came across this as well and it was all my problems solved. Its safe to use although obviously they cant be left on their own which they cant in any other bath seat. But it enables me to sit them on it (which its quite comfy) then i have both hands free to wash them and brush their teeth.

            I used these seats up until around 6 or 7 months when they were able to sit in the bath unaided. But it was a great buy and i would have one for the next baby as well, i had it pink which was great for my twin girls.

              Pick a different sort

              I bought this for my third baby. For the previous two I'd had one of the hard plastic moulded bath seats, which broke (after use by a few more than 2 babies!). I was disappointed and ended up getting another one of the moulded plastic ones (free from a friend, but still).

              Generally, some kind of baby bath seat is great for enabling you to bath the baby in the bath (at the same time as your toddler) but without straining your back, and leaving your hands free to play and wash.

              About this particular seat: it is soft for the baby to lie on as it is made of mesh. It has two positions - reclined a lot and sitting up a bit. These are the good points. Oh and it has a little removable head cushion.

              It does fold down but it doesn't actually go flat so it's no better for travelling than the moulded plastic sort.

              It doesn't have anything to keep the baby in it. As they get bigger and start kicking their legs as hard as they can in the bath, they can slip down or sideways and off. This was the main reason I didn't keep using it.

              It's quite high up. So you have to fill the bath quite full if you want the baby to be in the water.

                Baby Bather

                INTRODUCTION

                I actually stumbled upon this product when I was shopping for bottles for Ethan. Bath times wasn’t much fun for Ethan has I think he was a little scared of the bath, at first I used to put him in the bath with me and still he wasn’t so happy. And I tried everything to keep in happy while giving him a bath, although he used to make my arm ache when putting him in the bath alone. Anyway when I saw this product I just had to buy it, and here is why.

                ABOUT THE BABY BATHER

                The baby bather is a chair that goes into your bath, as it wouldn’t fit into a baby bath. The chair as a rubber base on it so that it doesn’t slip around in the water and as 2 height adjustments on it so your baby can either lounge or sit upright. The rest of the chair is made of soft mesh so it is soft for your baby to lounge in. There is also a adjustable head support for your babies head. The mesh sling as a clip to the back of the chair so that you can take it off to wash if needed to.

                The bather is like a baby bouncer but smaller and doesn’t bounce. The chair is able to let you have both hands free to comfort and bath your baby, without the fear of him slipping out of your arms and being to heavy to hold while bathing him. The chair cradles your baby to make him feel safe and snug while having a bath.

                The chair can easily be folded flat and stored away when not used and with the chair having its own bag it makes it easy to travel with. The chair cradles your baby to make him feel safe and snug while having a bath. The baby bather comes with a bag one side to put in the chair when not using or travelling and a little pouch on the front of it with brush, comb, baby scissors, and nail clippers and anything else you want to throw in.

                PRICE AND AVAILIBILITY

                I bought mine from argos for the price of £15 although now it is priced at only £9.99.

                FINAL THOUGHTS

                I bought the chair for easier bath times, also for the first few weeks it was tough giving him a bath as I still sore from the CS ( C Section) I had so was kind of awkward and uncomfortable for me to bath him. Also with him not liking his baths, so I was in need with something that was safe and was able to help me with bathing him easier and this suit all the requirements that I needed.

                The baby bather is really good for the money and does its job well. The only thing I regret is not buying it sooner, this is a must get for parents to make bathing your baby easier.

                Thank you to everyone that reads and rates this opinion
                I hope I have covered everything about the chair.
