Bath Essentials

bath essentials

  1. Fisher-Price Precious Planet Whale of a Tub: For infants, there is a contoured stopper that eliminates the need for a sling, and the stopper is easily removed when baby becomes a toddler. We have been using this tub since Nina was born and it keeps all of us happy at bath time! She has always sat very securely in this tub without sliding around. It also comes with a baby whale toy for added fun.
  2. Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Creamy Wash: We started out using a “shampoo/body wash 2-in-1” and it really dried out Nina’s delicate skin. We switched to this one and it is very nourishing and gentle.
  3. Munchkin Hot Safety Bath Ducky: I actually purchased this temperature-gauging bath ducky for a different reason; Nina’s other squirting bath duckies were growing some mold inside due to trapped water, and I liked this one because it had no holes in it. The first time we used it, the blue bottom turned slightly white, alerting me that the water was a little too warm. I had been relying on the wrist test, so I was glad to have this to give me extra peace of mind that Nina wouldn’t be uncomfortable in the water.
  4. Pottery Barn Gingham Nursery Hooded Towel: Though a bit pricey, these are quality bath towels that hold up well over time. We have some other brands that feel really cheap compared to these.
  5. Munchkin Float and Play Bubbles Bath Toy: Nina plays with these in and out of the tub. They are great for sensory exploration and motor skill development.
  6. Skip Hop Moby Waterfall Bath Rinser: This holds way more water than a typical rinser cup, and the contoured rubber rim helps direct the water around baby’s head to keep it out of her eyes. We tried the bath visor first, but she just ripped that right off!
  7. Pottery Barn Gingham Washcloth Set: Same deal as the towels on the pricey aspect here, but they last and last!
  8. Skip Hop Moby Bath Kneeler: I never realized how hard the bathroom floor was until I had to kneel next to the tub for extended periods of time. This cute foam kneeler makes bath time much more comfortable for me.
  9. Aveeno Baby Gentle Conditioning Shampoo: As I mentioned with the body wash, I found the 2-in-1 shampoo and wash to be very drying, so we switched to this separate shampoo. Nina had cradle cap (I’m not sure if that was a result of the drying wash we used previously) and this conditioning shampoo helped to soften the flakes (gross) without medicated treatment.
  10. Munchkin Caterpillar Spillers Stacking Cups and Munchkin Squirtin’ Bath Barnyard Friends and Sesame Street Bath Squirters (last two not pictured): I know that some kids just don’t like bath time, so here some toys we love to make bath time more enjoyable! Have fun!
