48 X 48 Bathtub - Baby bathtubs make it easier for the parents since they are a more compact spot to give your baby a bath. Wherever you are giving your baby a bath you'll need to keep at least one hand on your baby at all times so that you can prevent your baby from sliding under the water. There are bathtubs which come with mesh or a liner of fabric inner cradle that limits the baby from building a great deal of motion when in a bathtub. If your baby becomes six months old, the baby will end up too large to have a bath in an infant bathtub, all though it's possible to discover bathtubs which can accommodate a newborn or toddler weighing around twenty five pounds.
At this time it's the right time to move to a regular size bathtub. You may put in the bathtub only enough water so that it's quite shallow and also test the water to make sure that it is not overly hot. The first bath you give your baby should be sort of a test run. What we mean by that perhaps, it should be a sponge bath rather than a legitimate bathroom. You'll need to wait before you give your baby a legitimate bathroom because you need to wait till the stub of the umbilical cord falls off. You might want to dial it back up to providing a bath daily as your child's skin will dry out quite easily. So it'd probably be a great idea to give a bath maybe 3 times throughout the course of a week.
There are a couple things that you should have available when you bathe your baby, for example, a soft towel rather a hooded you to cradle your baby's head, a baby washcloth and an unscented hypoallergenic baby wash which doubles as shampoo. Whichever baby tub that you choose it'll be awkward and also the heck of an adventure to a parent because the baby will be moving about. Also, the baby probably won't enjoy the changing temperatures of the water that you will clean them in. Parents might want to finish the bathroom as quickly as possible. The baby won't enjoy their first couple of bathrooms as will need to adjust.
If you receive a baby tub it's far better to have one which is contoured in the interior or possess a bathtub insert so the baby's head will be over the water and this is the way the support which will give the baby's head support. Now, if the bath is not contoured, a bathtub doesn't come with the inserts. The inserts are important to maintain your child's head up from the water. You'll realize that the baby tubs are made to fit a sink, then convert to a bathtub that you'll be able to place in a regular tub as soon as your baby is able to sit up. There are tubs that are just like a bucket which comes with a foam insert that can hold your baby up vertically in the water and makes the baby feel as though they're in the uterus.
The reason that these tubs aren't thought of highly is that they become very dangerous. This type of bathtub can float when in the regular tub and maybe tip over. Another feature which you may want to consider when buying a baby tub is that the design has to be contoured so that the baby doesn't slip around too much. You also may want a temperature index or temperature strip which will tell you that your water may be too hot that is wonderful to have as this can help you regulate the water correctly. You can also use your elbow to check the water, since the elbow is among the most sensitive parts of the human body.
