“ Type: Bath Basins & Seats „
I brought a baby bath for my first child 3yrs ago.This one was 9.99 and came with a soap dish,2 fun sponges and 2 containers.The colour was a litle bland,a light blue and so were the assessories.It was easy to clean but unless you put the baby bath in the big bath,it was heavy to move and empty.It had a plug at the bottom but dont use it unless its in the bath! I must admit my first daughter did enjoy the baby bath and it gave her a sence of security a prepared her for the big bath which she loves so much now. It was good value for the price and Im glad I didnt buy an expensive one as I never used it for my second daughter,she went in the big bath sraight away.
I was really pleased with this bath. It's shaped so that one end is suitable for newborns and the other for older children who are able to sit up. The newborn end has a little ridge accross just where baby's bottom is so they won't slide down, even the most inexpert new parent [me], can manage to hold baby one handed, leaving the other free for sponging and playing. The end for an older baby is shaped like a little seat, so again you have a free hand and don't have to worry about them disappearing under the water. There is a plug for easy emptying and because of the way the bath is shaped it actually on takes about 1 washing up bowl full of water, which means you can move the bath when it's full without giving yourself a hernia! Sorry, can't remember what it cost, but it wasn't expensive.
We bought a baby bath from Index that sits over our own bath. It proved absolutely perfect for our needs. It fits snugly over the sides of the main bath so you feel quite safe putting your newborn into it. It came with an additional seat, but we never used that because when our daughter was big enough for the seat, we felt that she was big enough to use the main bath! The bath itself has a plug in it which makes it easy to empty and spaces to put soap, flannels, sponges etc into. I would recommend this product to any parent.
