What is a Baby Tub?

A baby tub is just what it sounds like — a tub for your baby! However, there are many types of baby tubs. Some are very simple and basically work like basins. Some have motors that create bubbles and vibrations. Some also have their own shower units. 

 

Is it Necessary to Buy a Baby Tub?

Baby tubs are not necessarily a “need” but they certainly can make your parent life much easier. Without a baby tub, finding comfortable ways to bathe your baby can be tricky. 

Sinks and bathtubs are often cold and scary to little ones who aren’t used to them. It’s also difficult to find ways to safely hold your baby (especially newborns) while you clean them. So, if you want bathtime to be an easier, more enjoyable experience, you should definitely consider purchasing a baby tub.

 

What to Look for in a Baby Tub

Before deciding on a baby tub, you need to consider how you would like to bathe your baby. For example, some tubs are specifically designed to work in the sink, while others are meant to be used in the big bathtub.

You may also want to think about where you will keep your baby tub. Some fold up and can easily be stored, while others have hooks that can easily be hung in the shower. Some baby tubs don’t have any convenient storage options, so you will need to decide where to keep it when it’s not in use.

The most important thing to consider when choosing a baby bathtub is how safe and comfortable your baby will be. After that, consider which baby tub would be the best fit for your family and your living space.
