Everyone loves a freshly-bathed baby, am I right?! From those nerve-wracking newborn baby baths to the toddler you have to drag out of the bath after an hour, I love them. Bath time is my go-to when my kids are bouncing off the walls.
It took me awhile to get the hang of bathing a baby. They’re so wiggly and tiny and they have such little body control for the first month or so. With Blaire, we didn’t have a good baby tub, so she wasn’t a fan of bath time for the first two-three months.
So, in my trial and error of bathing babies over the past 879879 months, I’ve rounded up my favorite items for bathing your baby.
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10
1| Boon SOAK 3 Stage Tub c/o Boon: We LOVE this tub. I’ve recommended it to ALL of my friends. We actually bought one, and then received one from Boon. So I was happy to gift one to a friend for their new babe. For the first few newborn baths (when they really just need a sponge bath) we were able to layer a warm towel in there and he LOVED it. We use it until the age of 3-4 months and then prefer to give baths in the big bath tub.
2| Angel Care Baby Bath Support: Around 3 months we start using this in our bath tub. Our babies have all loved the water, so they love being able to kick and splash in the bath tub vs. being in the small amount of water in the infant tub.
3| Tubby Todd Hair & Body Wash c/o: We LOVE Tubby Todd. I have tried many different baby bath products and either they’re gentle on skin or they smell good, never both, until Tubby Todd! And, their body wash even bubbles! That’s super important to toddlers, trust me. You can use code TRISTA15 to save 15% off your Tubby Todd order.
4| Tubby Todd 100% Natural Everyday Lotion c/o: Same goes for this lotion as the body wash. We’ve tried a ton and this is the best that’s gentle AND actually smells soooo good. You can use code TRISTA15 to save 15% off your Tubby Todd order.
5| Wash Cloths
6| Spout Cover: A spout cover is good once your baby is out of their baby tub and in the big tub. It’s saved Blaire’s head from the spout a time or two!
6| Bath Towel & Wash Cloth c/o Lou Lou Lollipop: One thing I can’t handle are microfiber bath towels. They feel so gross and they aren’t very absorbent.
7| Bath Toy Holder c/o Skip Hop: We have used a few different bath toy organizers and this is, by far, my favorite. The bottom unzips so the toys fall out in to the tub. It is held to your tub with suction cups instead of an adhesive so it’s easy to remove.
9| Nuby Rinser c/o Nuby: This is awesome for bathing your infant and for washing your toddler’s hair. We’ve had it for four years and it’s still perfect!
10| Bath Kneeler: Some call this a bath kneeler, I call it a knee saver.
Ah, there’s nothing as adorable as baby toes splashing around in a bubble bath! What are your favorites for bathing your baby or toddler? xo
