Newborn Bathtubs

For the 0-6 month crowd, you can get a newborn bathtub or “support” that’s a bit smaller, easier to store and easier to move around.

Newborn Bathtubs and “Supports” for 0-6 Months

These items are “bath supports.” You can’t fill them with water; they’re more for sponge baths in a sink, with water underneath (or not). You feel me?

Summer Deluxe Baby Bather ~ $12

I (Melissa) used this seat for travel and because it folds up compactly, I left it at grandma’s house.

Angelcare Bath Support ~ $20

This is a VERY highly rated, affordable seat that’s made of soft, mildew-resistant mesh material. This one goes into the bathtub (you’ll have to bend over…) or a large sink. It also hangs up for convenient storage, unlike the larger infant tubs that take up lots of space.

It’s quite multi-functional and can also be used in your bathroom as a place to put baby so you can use the potty. People have said they even bring it to the beach so baby can hang out in the shade (I would have never thought of that). It’s very easy to wash it down.

Blooming Bath ~ $39

It’s very comfortable for baby and they don’t slip around (more highly-rated than the Puj Tub). You can even keep the water running for warmth. Works best in divided sinks vs. farm style, but it can work lying flat as well.

Puj Tub ~ $44

The Puj Tub is a cult favorite. Its sister product, the Puj Flyte is our reco for travel. Both fold compactly, are mold and mildew resistant and hang flat to dry. A great investment piece!

Newborn Bucket Tubs

Munchkin Sit and Soak ~ $29

Babies LOVE being in a bucket; it makes them feel very contained. The only downside to these buckets is that it’s a bit difficult to access and clean your baby’s [ahem] nether-regions.

I (Meg) used a tub downstairs when Alice was born because I could fill it up in the kitchen sink and bathe her on the counter. I also liked taking it outside for a little summertime alfresco bathing.

That’s the skinny on tubs for your newborn. Enjoy these days because they are so adorable!! For larger babies (or if you just want ONE tub that does it all)…
