“ Brand: Tigex / Type: Bath Basins & Seats „
When I first brought my daughter home I bathed her in a traditional baby bath which we brought into the front room infront of the fire, after a few back breaking weeks of doing this and spilling bath water over the carpet on a few occasions I started to look at some other alternatives.
I wanted a seat that would fit in the big bath so my daughter could share a bath with her and we could make life a bit easier for ourselves.
I chose this particular seat as it meant that she could lay in the bath water and be fully supported by the seat and she didn't have to sit up.
I looked around at the seat and found that amazon offered the best deal at £15.
The seat is simple it is basically moulded around the baby so that she cannot slip down or to the side. On the bottom of the seat is a sucker so that the seat stays where it is put in the bath and does not move around.
I found that it was very easy to wash my baby whilst she was in the seat and she did not get cold as I ran the water so it went over her body. If you are a first time parent or not confident in bathing your baby I would imagine this would be great as you don't have to hold onto a slippery baby whilst trying to wash her you can just lay her in the bath seat.
The seat is not too big so my elder daughter can share the same bath with the baby which she enjoys.
I would recommend this seat to anyone with a baby its definitely a good investment as it is such good quality and a simple design it would be able to be saved and used for any future children you may have.
I was given this seat as a hand me down when my daughter was born, and used it a lot. She was the third baby to use the seat, but now that I'm starting to prepare things for my third it still looks as good as it does in the shop.
Made of a durable plastic, the seat is suitable from birth to a 8 kilos, or about 5 months old. There are suction cups on the bottom which stick very well to the bath, whether wet or dry, and a line on the side to show how far up the water can safely come. In addition, the seat is moulded to be comfortable for baby and to help hold baby's legs in place.
My daughter hated baths, so it was very useful to be able to have a back rest for her, I could use my hands to wash her as quickly as possible. You do still need to have a hadn on a tiny baby, it's not a hands free solution, but it is more comfortable for baby and makes it easier to hold a slippery squirming baby.
As my daughter got older, I also used this as an extra seat in the bathroom, just to sit her down while I was on the toilet. This is safe if they're not moving too much and there's no water in the way, but I'd sing to her to keep her in place.
Our friends gave us a Tigex bath seat before I had my little one; it just stayed in the nursery unused until...
We were looking forward to bathing our newborn but when it came to actually doing it we couldn't believe how slippery he was and we were scared of dropping him. This long awaited enjoyable moment turned in to a bit of a nightmare he was screaming and thrashing his legs around...I then remember this seat we had been given what a life saver.
The bath was relatively shallow and the seat easily submerges into the water. The seat is a white plastic seat with suckers on the bottom of the seat to secure in on the bottom of the bath, these works very well to keep the seat in place.
The shape of the seat ensures your baby is fully supported and with a raised bit between their legs stops them from sliding right off.
Once you baby has had their bath I find the seat dries quickly and hardly needs a wipe off.
This seat is designed from birth to 8kg; my little boy is currently 7.2kg and still fits in it perfectly well.
I would recommend this for anyone who plans to bath their baby in a big bath. I got mine free but after a bit of research I have found the best price is on Amazon for £7.90 and free delivery.
When my son was two months old he outgrew his tiny little baby bath and as we'd been given a strange looking hunk of white plastic that my friend claimed was a baby bath seat, I decided it was time to put this seat to the test.
I ran a bath and got in it myself. Then my husband lifted the bath seat in once it was at the "maximum level" indicated on the seat. My husband then carefully undressed and lifted my son over the lip of our bath into my arms. I bobbed him around on the water and he seemed to love this, however my arms became very tired and I wanted to try out the bath seat.
At first he was reluctant to sit in it - I'm not sure if this is because the plastic itself was cold, or hard but if my memory serves well he quickly came round to it.
We then started to use the bath seat for every bath our son had - and he started to love the new found independence the seat had to offer!
Features: A contoured seat to fit any size of baby (big or small, although I wouldn't stick a newborn in this seat!), suction-like cushions that sit on the corners of the seat to ensure the bath seat is secure in the water, durable and washable plastic (it has survived many bleachings!), three holes in the seat so that it will sink into the water of the bath and a maximum fill level to show you where to fill too - so no over filling the bath!
This is a great product and has served us very well at bath time! 10 out of 10!
We started off bathing our daughter in a baby bath, like we had been shown at the hospital and antenatal classes. Surprisingly soon however, our little baby was too big for her baby bath, so we started bathing her in the 'big bath'. She really enjoyed all the room to kick around and play with her toys, but her parents weren't so impressed. It is quite hard to lean over the bath's side and hold onto your baby at all times. This became increasingly difficult as she began to kick around more; a slippery, wiggly baby is extremely difficult to hold onto!
A solution was found in this baby bath seat. It is found in many retaillers for around £14.99, and is suitable for up to 8 months old. It is essentially a moulded plastic seat (available in white or blue) with two suckers on the bottom to enable it to fix temporarily to your bath. The plastic is moulded in such away that the baby's arms and legs are free to experience water play and to splash around. There are some holes at the bottom of the seat to enable some flow of water around baby's bottom and also to help drain the water out, once you have used it.
Baby Frank has enjoyed this seat. She has been able to kick her legs about freely and I think she appreciates not having to be held all the time. Her arms don't really reach the water yet and stick out at the sides, which is a shame, but I expect as she gets bigger the problem will resolve.
The seat puts Baby Frank in a lovely semi-reclined position which is great for making eye contact and chatting to her. It has helped to reduce the strain on our backs and also the worry about letting her go. I can imagine that this seat would be great if you have a newborn and an older child whom you are bathing at the same time as you would be able to have your hands free for washing and supervising them.
However, I have found it more difficult to wash Baby Frank in this seat. As I lean her forward to wash her back and bottom, she sometimes slips forward and out of the seat. I have become less vigorous in tipping her forward and this has helped somewhat. Another thing is that you have to run a really full bath in order for them to be even half-covered in water. I find this wasteful. If you only run a small amount of water, most of the baby's body is out of the water and they get cold quickly. I have tried to counteract this effect by putting a warm flannel on Baby Frank's tummy and pouring water over it at intervals. However, I don't think this is the same as being covered by lovely warm water.
We have recently come across a bath sponge on which you lie your baby flat in the bath and this seems to address most of the negative points I have mentioned about the bath seat. Until we found this sponge, the bath seat was satisfactory and meeting most of baby's (and our) bath time needs.
When it came time for jessie to move from her baby bath to the real bath as she had out grown her little bath i began the hunt for a baby seat for her, i looked at the styles i had had with my other two children but jess wasnt any where near old enough for these as they required her to be able to sit up which at 10 weeks old she was far from being able to do so i was very pleased when i spotted this on amazon for £15
It is very basic in design it is a piece of plastic moulded up at the sides to stop jess being able to roll out or slip out of the seat and a piece at the bottom to stop her slipping streight down and out of the seat, It suctions to the bath with 3 suction cups, one at the front and one on either side these stick realy well in my plastic bath as the suckers are quite large and is easy to remove as they have tabs on them to pull to release the suction.
To use this you just lie baby in the seat, it is perfect as it means you have both hands free to wash your baby, jess loves being in this seat and still uses it now even though she can now sit up on her own as she is still very lazy and likes to lie down in the water.
Using this does mean you have to have the water quite low to be able to wash baby but what i do is fill it up to jessies mid chest and let her enjoy the water then lover the water level to wash her at the end.
This is a great seat and something you will easily be able to find still in perfect condition second hand as it is just plastic, no fancy bits to go wrong.
I was bought this seat by my mother in law and didnt think i would use it as i had already some weeks before got a baby bath.
However when my son arrived 3 weeks later that changed, my partener wasnt to confidant about holding our son while i washed him when he was so tiny, same as it was hard to hold baby and wash him on my own, so that is when the seat came out from the cupboard. It was amazing it is led back far anough for a new born baby so they are well supported, with i raised bit inbetween their legs to stop them from sliding out of the seat. It goes from 0-3 months and it is what i used every time after using my baby bath once. There is a line on the seat to show you where to fill the water up to. In my experience this seat made bath times exciting as i had both my hands free to play with the bath toys which my son loves.
I originally thought this was an unnecessary buy to start with but my friend insisted i buy one before the baby and thankgoodness i did! When i first bathed my baby i was a nervous wreck and was all fingers and thumbs and very scared i would drop him - this suport allowed to the peace of mind that he wouldnt slip under water and let me wash him properly. He fitted it up to about 4 weeks but by then i had my confidence but without the support i think i would have needed someone to help hold him while i got the towel ready etc and you need peace of mind when dealing with a screaming baby. I chose this over a foam one as it just looked sturdier and i wasnt looking for comfort rather safety and i feel this did make bathtime safer for my son.
So, I brought ofur little bundle of joy home from the hospital and I am on cloud nine...it's a beafutifl baby girl!!! yippee. Wonderful, she loves me! So lovely to sit and hold. Its been a few days now so lets bath her, obviously need to be careful of her belly button.....that was may only concern. I drew a bath, a lovely ergonomic baby bath, very expensive and fancy with a padded bottom for added comfort....given to me by my lovely sister in law, she spent a fortune on kitting out her 1st borns goodies.....good for me with hand-me-downs!!!!
So I carried my bath into my perfectly lit, perfect temperature nursery, and gently lifted my perfect little girl into it....OH MY GOD!!!! she literally went purple, screamed and became somewhat posessed!!!!!! A nightmare water and bathing hating demon. We as new parents simply thought (after beating ourselves up of course) that it was her first ever time in a bath, so she must be a little (understatement of the decade) afraid of the bath.
Now, this went on for weeks...we honestly thought we were doing something so wrong, we were not! The major turnig point was me taking her into the bath with me. She was in the big bath, fully submeged in the water and perfectly suported. A revelation! I spoke to agreat friend of mine, who told me about this bath suport, we got it in Jojo babe Mamon in Bluewater shopping Centre for £15.00. It meant that Lara was in the big bath, and that we could fill it so she was fully cover in water, and oh so very happy. Obviously you can never ever leave the baby unattended for evern a second, as in a really large amount of water! I over filled it well past the max line indicated on the side of the bath, just as thats the way she liked it.
Its amaxing and very simple. A baby shaped piece of plastic that suckers to the bottom of the bath, only just bigger than the child so very easy to store. Everything goes on in the bath room. Baby is always lovely and warm rather then have exposed like in a traditional filled baby bath.
I would highly recommend this bath, its one of the most sucessful things we got for both our kids!!!
My son was very long from birth, so much so he filled the baby bath when the midwife was showing us what to do! He never seemed that comfortable in the baby bath because of this so we quickly looked for something else to move on to. We looked at a number of supports but the ergonomically shaped Tigex seat seemed an excellent choice.
The Tigex bath seat is suitable from birth till about 8 months and can be used in a normal adult bath. It is made of a sturdy plastic molded so the baby is completely supported and comfortable in a lying position. Baby will feel save and happy (as will mum!). The plastic means it is durable and hygienic; it's really easy to clean and dry. The seat is secured to the bath by 2 suckers, and has lines on the side to show were the water showed be filled to.
We found this seat really great once we got the hang of it. Our son could splash his arms and legs lots, and enjoyed a freedom in the bath we could never give him while supporting him. Our hands were also left free to play and wash him, bath time was much more enjoyable for all. My son found it very comfortable, it supported him well and he never seemed like he was falling out of it. It was great to clean, very light and compact so easy to store or take away with you. I found it excellent for bathing my son in other people's houses or hotels as it was so easy to take and I knew I would be able to use it in any bath.
The only problem we had with this seat was the water level line. It made a very shallow bath which my son hated, I think it made him cold and feel insecure. We decided to try the seat in a deeper bath, we felt confident the seat was still secure and as we never turned our back so we felt happy to still use it. I must stress the instructions say not to fill past the line, but thought I would add how we found it worked best for our son anyway.
We used the seat until he was about 7 months old. Although he still loved it he was starting to try and sit up in it, so we decided to move onto an upright seat (we went for the Aquapod, which has been another great success!).
All in all this was an excellent buy, great value for money and a great success with our son. I will definitely be hanging onto it for any other children we have in the future!
Before I bought this, I read lots of reviews of baby bath supports. Some of the reviews said the more luxurious looking, fabric ones had a tendency to go mouldy if they weren't dried quickly enough, which is something that hadn't even crossed my mind when I set out to buy one. So I chose this one because it is plastic; it dries quickly and can be wiped clean when necessary. It is pretty sturdy and has small suckers underneath to attach it to your bath. It also has a guide to show you how deep the water should be.
As a new mum I was a little nervous about bathing my baby in case he slipped or wriggled out of my grasp, but this seat meant that wasn't a problem. Your baby is supported by the seat, helping him to feel more secure in the water and allowing you to have both hands free to wash him. Initially I was worried it didn't look that comfortable, but my son seemed to enjoy using it.
It is meant to be used from birth until your baby weighs 8kg, but I found it got too tight around the ribs for my son before he reached the maximum weight so we had to stop using it before he could sit unaided which was a real shame, but I found it really useful when he was small. I shall certainly keep hold of it for baby number 2!
