{Tipful Thursday} Bath Time Favorites

Bath time has become one of our favorite activities. Now that he is sitting up on his own, we had to transition him out of the infant bath tub. We just weren’t ready to put him in the bath tub with out any support. I started looking online for a bath tub seat, similar to the Aquababy Bath Ring but it was too pricey for the amount of time we would probably need it. A laundry basket works just as well, and makes it easy to collect his toys at the end!

Up until about a week ago, we were using The First Year’s Infant – Toddler Tub (with sling). We would fill it with water and put it on the changing table since P didn’t really move or splash, at first. The sling was perfect to support him as we learned how to bath an infant.

Around 4 months, we took the sling out and put the infant tub in our bath tub. I talked about the Bath Luv Frog in P’s 3&4 Month Favorites. This was really important in keeping P warm and happy during bath time. We used it up until a week ago when he started sitting in the bath tube in a laundry basket.

Of course, I couldn’t miss out on a opportunity to share our bath time favorites!

Since I love warm bath water, I love the Aquatopia Deluxe Safety Bath Thermometer to keep it at a safe temperature for P. While we are in the tub, the Especially for Baby Stacking Cups and Sassy Developmental Bath Toy – Catch & Count Net keep P entertained and happy. 🙂 He loves cups both inside and outside the tub. I wasn’t thrilled with him putting them in his mouth at first but there is no way to stop it 😉

I talked about the VTech Musical Bubbles Octopus in P’s 8 Month Favorites post. It is a really great price for the quality. As you can see, P really enjoys it too!

The Green Toys My First Tugboat is a great toy and functional when washing P’s hair. I found it new at a great price at one of our local consignment sales. They are recycled milk containers made in the USA.

We use Johnson’s & Johnson’s Naturals Shampoo and Johnson’s & Johnson’s Foaming Wash to keep him nice and clean. There are so many great products out there but these were the ones we went with. After we are done, we use hooded towels to dry him of and give him a little “free” time. We use Burt’s Bees Nourishing Lotion to keep him soft baby skin hydrated and silky smooth.

    Haha! I’m glad that worked as well as it sounded like it would. That’s freaking awesome. 😀

      It is working out perfectly! P likes to try and pull himself up on it. Of course I am there holding him when he falls 🙂

    Noah just discovered the joys of splashing in tetub. Bathtime should involve a raincoat for mommy! Thanks for the great toy tips! We have those cups, too!
