One of our worries before we had Harry was bathing him! Such a silly thing to worry about really but it's pretty nerve wracking the thought of gripping on to a slippery wet, possibly screaming, baby whilst half submerging them under water! We still hadn't bought a baby bath when Harry arrived as we really weren't sure whether to get one or just stick him in our normal tub. Baby baths can be bulky and we don't have a lot of storage in our bathroom and I always felt like they didn't look like they had much support for the baby's body at all.
We received the Beaba Bath Recliner as a present and it's AMAZING!! It made the first bath sooooo incredibly easy and relaxing for both us and Harry!
It really is such a simple product. The plastic frame is covered by a flannel material which acts as a "chair" for you to lay your little one on. It completely supports their weight so that you wouldn't actually need to hold onto them at all as it grips onto their skin. We do tend to need to hold Harry's hand or legs as he is such a wriggler he ends up almost off of it but we literally have our hands free to wash his body, hair and have a little splash and play with him! I really do think Harry likes his bath times so much because of this bath support as it gives him total freedom to splash his limbs about without us having to really grab into him to stop him from slipping. It's not hard and plastic like the generic baby baths out there and he looks so cosy when he's laid out on it! Oh and the best thing about it is the fact we can use it in our normal bath and it's small enough to store away easily AND the flannel material is washable so is nice and sanitary
You can purchase the Beaba Bath Recliner from Mamas and Papas for £22 which is such a good price for such a fantastic product!
Does your little one enjoy bath times??
