Bath Time

Newborn bath support

(From 0 months +) Back to top

A plastic, foam or inflatable support to help keep your baby safe in the bath. Babies can be quite slippery in the bath - especially when they are very small and you're not used to bathing them, so a bath support is well worth having.

Mini bath tub

(From 0 months +) Back to top

A small bath for newborns, these are either plastic or inflatable. You're unlikely to need these often, so it's definitely not something to spend your money on if you're watching your budget.

Our mums say:

"You will use this so little it really isn't worth spending money on."

"We did use one for our baby bath for first 4 months - it was easier on our backs and he felt nice and secure in it - until his splashing soaked us and flooded the bathroom! Now we use it as an extra laundry basket!"

Bath toys

(From 0 months +) Back to top

There are a huge range of toys designed for playing with in the bath, and they can make bath time great fun for parent and child. However, you should keep an eye on bath toys - especially the ones which allow water in, as they can develop mould.

Our mums say:

"Once your baby is sitting up, bath toys are really useful. They keep the baby busy at the end of the day and a good play time in the bath can help get it off to sleep quickly as they are happy and relaxed."

Bath mat

(From 0 months +) Back to top

This prevents the baby slipping in the bath. It's important to have even before the baby can sit in the bath, and especially if you are sharing a bath with them and having to climb in and out holding the baby. These can develop mould on the underside and need to be scrubbed regularly.

Our mums say:

"This is really important!"

Baby toothbrush and toothpaste

(From 0 months +) Back to top

Tooth brushes and toothpaste designed for babies. Tooth brushes come in different age ranges, but can be used from birth. Ideally it's worth using a 0+ brush from when your baby's first tooth comes through. For toothpaste, check the tube as these come in age ranges too and it's important a baby uses the right one as the fluoride level is lower for babies. First toothpaste normally covers 0-3yrs.

Our mums say:

"It's worth giving your baby a toothbrush early on to get them use to it.. It can also help with teething pain."
