KOKOPAX TOP PICK

Giving your baby a bath can be a very intimidating experience. You are going to have to expose them to a whole new worth of bathing. You cannot simply throw your little one into your current bathtub or shower and hope for the best. You have to get special shampoo, a soft washcloth for their sensitive skin and even their own bathtub so you don’t put your baby under water.

Fortunately we spent over 30 hours researching to find the best baby bathtub on the market to help you narrow down your search. We talked to new parents who have just gone through the experience of what it’s like to try and bathe a new baby.

We interviewed manufacturers and retailers to see which bathtubs sold the best and why. And we even tried to fit one of our writers into a baby bathtub, but he was too big. We found that The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe Tub is the best one we could find. You can use it for your baby from when he is a tiny newborn all the way up until he is a toddler.

It is comfortable, durable and puts your baby in the best position for you to wash him. We also found a few others to help you on your search. These are our top baby tubs that you can buy for your little one.

The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe

The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe Review

The most important thing for finding the perfect baby tub is that it is needs to be comfortable for your little one, but still have him in the best position for getting him as clean as possible. The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe tub pays special attention to having extra support and comfort for your baby. You can count on this product to put your little one in a great bathing position while still being properly supported and happy. If you want to have a happy and easy bathtime with your baby, this tub can really help you out.

If you want the best for your baby, then you will be happy to know that this bathtub was voted the best baby tub in BabyCenter’s Moms’ Picks 2014 awards. And for good reason. This baby tub has a great design that’s made to hold your baby in the best position for bathing. This means that you can get your little one in and out of the tub as quickly as possible and with little effort.

The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe

If you want the best for your baby, then you will be happy to know that this bathtub was voted the best baby tub in BabyCenter’s Moms’ Picks 2014 awards.

The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe tub comes with a mesh sling to give your baby extra support. If you’re worried that your newborn will slide around in a plastic tub, then you can put the sling in the tub and have him lie on it comfortably. It also has a plush headrest so your baby won’t have his head against a hard surface. Both the headrest and the sling are removable and machine washable. You can take them out to clean and dry so there will be no mildew or wet smell.

One of the moms we talked to enjoys using this baby tub with her daughter. She said,

“I was very nervous about bathing my daughter for the first time. I didn’t know how well she would like the water or the feeling of soap or how to hold her in the tub to make sure she didn’t get water up her nose. But The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe tub made me feel better about it. I could put her laying down on the mesh sling and let her rest in the tub. It puts her in the right position, so I don’t have to worry about her getting water up her nose or being uncomfortable. And it is easy for me to wash her while she is in here. I don’t end up in uncomfortable positions trying to reach her, and she is happily lying down without feeling stressed. It’s a great product.”

This product doesn’t just have to be for your baby when she is a newborn. It has two sides, one for your child when she is a newborn, and one for when she is a toddler. As she grows, the tub grows with her. When your little one is a newborn, you can rest her on the mesh sling in the tub. As she grows older, you can take the sling out and let her have more room. Then when she is a toddler, she can sit up against the opposite side and play in her tub. If you want a bathtub that will last you for a long time, then this is a great choice.

Product Details:

The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe Tub

  • Material: Plastic
  • Minimum weight: 5 pounds
  • Maximum weight: 25 pounds
  • Color: Blue
  • Toddler seat: Yes
  • Moms say: Very durable! Love the mesh sling and padded headrest.

The entire thing is mildew-resistant. The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe tub is easy to wash after your little one is done with her bath. You can clean the tub out and allow it to air dry. Because it is a safe plastic, it will easily dry without retaining water if propped up properly. You can take the mesh sling and padding and put it in the washing machine and then also put it in your dryer. It is safe, easy and clean for your baby.

Another one of the parents we talked to had nothing but good things to say about her baby bathtub,

“I think this is a really nice bathtub, and I am really pleased with my purchase. It is cute and fits well in my tub, and my baby fits well inside of it. When he was a newborn, we would use the mesh sling to keep him in place. Now that he is 7 months old, we don’t need the sling, but isn’t big enough for the toddler side yet. We use this product often and have noticed that it seems just as nice as the day we bought it. It is very easy to clean and dry, and I am pretty happy with it.”

Some questions parents had: 

Is the tub BPA-free?

Yes, it is made from BPA-free plastic

Will it fit in my sink?

The bottom of the tub is 17 inches by 11 inches, so it depends on how big your sink is.

Does it have a drain feature?

Yes, there is a plug in the bottom, or you can simply turn it over for a quicker drain.

Some parents did have some complaints about The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe tub. A few parents found that after their babies were old enough to be without the mesh sling, they had trouble keeping them from sliding around in the tub. The seat that is meant to hold their little ones in places did not work very well.

A few other parents noticed that without the sling it was a little bit uncomfortable until their baby could sit up on his own. So a transition period between these two times (in the sling and sitting), was difficult. If your little one is small, then you might want to keep him in the sling for as long as possible.

However, we think that this tub is really great. It is cute, affordable and comes with the great sling and headrest attachments. We love the color and the size, and we think you will really enjoy bathtime with your baby in The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe tub.

PRIMO EuroBath

PRIMO EuroBath Review

It’s important to have a bathtub that can grow with your baby. When you buy a new product, you want one that will last you for more than just a few months. This bathtub is designed specifically to work when your baby is a newborn until he is a toddler who can sit and play on his own. It has two different seating areas to make your baby as comfortable as possible during bath time until he is ready for the big tub!

The PRIMO EuroBath baby tub has a unique shape with safety supports for your baby’s forearms and legs. It helps him sit in a comfortable position from the time he is a brand newborn until 24 months of age. This means that it is a very large and very versatile tub that will have plenty of room for your little one to grow and still enjoy his bath. If you want a supportive tub that will last for years, then this product could be great for you.

If you are looking for a product that is easy to use, drain and clean, then you will be happy to know that this tub is all of that. It has an easy drainage system, and because it is plastic, it is easy to clean. You can just clean it out and hang it to dry. The plastic is BPA-free, lead-free and phthalate-free, so you don’t have to worry about it being unsafe for your baby. You can simply fill up this tub, let your little one have a great bath and then clean it easily with no real fuss or worry.

PRIMO EuroBath

The PRIMO EuroBath baby tub has a unique shape with safety supports for your baby’s forearms and legs. It helps him sit in a comfortable position from the time he is a brand newborn until 24 months of age.

A mom we interviewed told us this about her PRIMO EuroBath,

“I bought this tub because it was so large. I want to be able to use it for a long time and feel safe with my child in the bath. I love the supports and the seats in there. My daughter can lie back now as I give her a bath, but it is great that as she grows older, she can sit up and play in the tub. It is deep enough and big enough that I can use it when she is a toddler too. I am also really happy with how easy it is to clean. Having tub you can pick up and clean off is much easier than trying to clean the bathtub in your house every day. This one is great, and I am very happy with it.”

The PRIMO EuroBath is a very large bath that boasts to be the largest tub on the market. It measures 36 inches by 21 inches by 10 inches. This means that as your baby gets bigger, she doesn’t have to go straight into an adult tub right away. She can still splash and play in this tub and enjoy her bath while she is a toddler. Because it is so large, it has specific supports to keep your baby from slipping under into the water.

Product Details:

PRIMO EuroBath

  • Material: BPA-free, phthalate-free lead-free Plastic
  • Minimum age: 0 months (newborn)
  • Maximum weight: 24 months (2 years)
  • Color: White
  • Toddler seat: Yes
  • Moms say: Very durable! Love the size!

PRIMO EuroBath suggests that you use the specially contoured seat for your newborn until he is six months old or until he can sit up on his own. This seat supports his entire body in a laying back position, but still gives him plenty of water to play and splash around in. After he is old enough, you can use the other side which supports his back and legs and keeps him from sliding under. This side of the tub allows him to sit upright and have fun in the bathtub while getting nice and clean!

Another mom we talked to said that her baby has been loving baths in this tub for over a year,

“My son is 1 year and 3 months old. He is now in the toddler side, and he loves his bathtime in our PRIMO EuroBath. He sits up and plays with a few toys and I can still easily wash him instead of having to lean over into a bigger tub. He is also still fully supported, so I don’t worry about pushing him under the water or him slipping out from underneath of me while I wash him. The water is deep enough for him to have fun and sit comfortably without getting cold. We all love bathtime in our house, and this tub really helps with that.”

Some questions parents had: 

 

Which country is this tub made in?

It is made in U.S.A

Can I use this for a small infant?

Yes, despite the depth there is a special seat for your baby to keep him above the water.

Would it fit in a kitchen sink?

Probably not. It is a very large baby tub.

A few parents did have some concerns about the tub. Mainly because this bathtub is so big, it cannot fit in a sink. That means that parents have to put the tub either inside of their own bath which requires them to lean down in a possibly uncomfortable position to wash their baby or they have to put it on a countertop which could be messy.

Other parents noticed that because it was so big it was a little bit difficult to store when it isn’t being used. PRIMO EuroBath does offer an optimal storage bath stand, but unless you have a big space, it still might be difficult. If you are looking for a smaller tub, then you might not want to purchase this one.

Even though this tub might be big, we think you would really enjoy having it in your house. It is safe, fun to play and splash around in for your baby and comfortable. It is durable enough to last you for years, even through a few babies if you have them. We are happy to recommend this tub to you.

Fisher-Price Precious Planet Whale

Fisher-Price Precious Planet Whale ReviewSometimes when you’re looking for baby products, you want them to be as cute and attractive as your little one. Why not buy a crib with elephants on it or a bathtub shaped like a whale? And that’s exactly what this is, a whale-shaped baby tub that has a face with a smile and even a cute whale cup for rinsing and play time. Your little one will really enjoy having her bath inside of a friendly whale, and we think that the more fun, the better.

The Fisher-Price Precious Planet Whale tub uses plastic and foam to make a comfortable and safe tub that is big and cute enough to last your little one for a long time. It has soft foam at the “face” which helps cushion your newborn while she is bathing. This helps her lie comfortably and without slipping around in the tub. If you want a baby tub that will guarantee that your little one won’t slip around, then this tub could be the one you’re looking for.

As your baby gets a little bit older, you can remove the newborn seat entirely. This means that your toddler won’t have to squeeze her way around a seat that she no longer needs. She can sit up in the tub and play in the water easily. Fisher-Price Precious Planet Whale is designed so that your little one still will not slip on the bottom of the tub, so you don’t have to worry while giving her a bath. If you want a safe and cute tub, then you will really enjoy having this in your bathroom.

Fisher-Price Precious Planet Whale

The Fisher-Price Precious Planet Whale tub uses plastic and foam to make a comfortable and safe tub that is big and cute enough to last your little one for a long time.

One of the moms we talked to told us this,

“I chose this tub because it is really cute. I love whales, and I think this one looks great. I also trust the name Fisher-Price, so that helped me make my decision as well. I really like that there is foam in the tub to keep my baby from sliding. I did not want to buy a fully plastic tub because I was afraid that when I went to wash my baby, she would just slide all around and fall into the water causing a possibly dangerous situation. However, I don’t worry about that at all! It’s great!”

This product also comes with a cute baby whale cup. It matches the tub nicely and helps a lot with your little one when he wants to play in the water, or if you want to use a cup to rinse him off. If your baby likes to play with toys or cups in the bath, then you will really enjoy giving him this cute cup to play with. And you will also enjoy how easy it will be to rinse him with it. We think it’s great that this baby tub comes with such a cute extra piece.

Product Details:

Fisher-Price Precious Planet Whale

  • Material: Plastic and foam
  • Minimum weight: 5 pounds (newborn)
  • Maximum weight: 20 pounds with baby seat/25 pounds without baby seat
  • Color: Green/blue
  • Toddler seat: Yes
  • Moms say: Very durable! Love the extra play cup!

The Fisher-Price Precious Planet Whale has a drain plug so you can easily drain all the water out after your baby is done with her bath. You can then simply wash it and hang it up to dry. This means that the tub is easy to use, clean and keep free from bacteria. The foam and the plastic are both easy to clean without having to take anything apart, although it is recommended to remove the baby seat and clean the area under it to make sure no mildew or mold grows if water is trapped under there.

Another parent we talked to thought this product was really cute and loved it for her son,

“I love this tub. It is nice and soft, and I know that is a big deal for my son. I don’t like the idea of laying him down on hard plastic and then trying to give him a bath. It sounds like a nightmare to me. This one has a foam headrest and backrest to make him way more comfortable, and I really like that. I also love that it is really cute. I like cute things. It is easy to clean after bath time. I can drain the tub, clean it and hang it up without worrying about having cloth parts that need to go in the washing machine. It makes everything very easy and it makes baths with my son fun. I really like our Fisher-Price Precious Planet Whale bathtub.”

Some questions parents had:

Can a toddler sit up and play in this tub?

Yes, after you remove the baby seat, there is enough room for playing.

Is it BPA-free?

Yes. The plastic is BPA-free

Does it come with a sling for infants?

No, but it has a baby seat to keep your infant from sliding into the tub.

There were some complaints about the tub when we asked around. A few parents had trouble with their very tiny newborns. They said that until the baby was big enough to fit in the baby seat, he was unable to keep his head up and they had to support it with their hands. This tub does not come with an infant head support, only the padded headrest. If your little one is not able to hold his head up on his own yet, then it might be frustrating to have to help him during his entire bath.

Other parents didn’t like that you have to remove the baby seat to clean it. If you don’t remove the seat and clean it completely, then there can be buildup of mold and mildew. You have to make sure that every part is taken out before you hang it up to try to keep your baby safe. If you want a tub that doesn’t have removable parts to minimize this chance and make cleaning easier, then you might want to get a different baby tub.

Despite these reviews, we think you will really enjoy bathtime with your baby in this tub! It is cute and fun to have a bath in a whale, and we think you will agree. The tub is affordable, comfortable and safe. You will love how much fun you can have with your child in the Fisher-Price Precious Planet Whale baby tub.
