54 X 30 Bathtub - Baby bathtubs make it easier for the parents since they are a more compact spot to give your baby a bath. No matter where you're giving your baby a bath you'll need to keep a minumum of one hand on your baby at all times so that you can stop your baby from slipping under the water. There are bathtubs which arrive with mesh or a liner of cloth inner cradle that restricts the baby from making a lot of movement when in a tub. Some tubs have a foam-lined contoured interior so a baby can relax in a semi-upright place. If your baby becomes six months old, the baby will end up too large to take a bath in a baby tub, all though you can find tubs that can accommodate a newborn or toddler weighing around twenty five pounds.
At about nine months a baby will outgrow this kind of tub. At this time it is the right time to move into a normal size tub. You will put in the tub just enough water so that it is quite shallow and also test the water to make sure that it is not too hot. The very first bath you give your baby ought to be sort of a test run. What we mean by that perhaps, it ought to be a sponge bath and not a legitimate bathroom. You will need to wait before you give your baby a legitimate bathroom as you want to wait till the stub of the umbilical cord falls off. After umbilical cord does fall off, you may offer your baby a bath every day if you desire. You may want to dial it back up to providing a bath daily because your baby's skin will dry out quite easily. So it would probably be a great idea to give a bath maybe three times during the course of a week.
There are a couple things that you ought to have available when you bathe your baby, such as, a soft towel rather a hooded one to cradle your baby's mind, a baby washcloth and an unscented hypoallergenic baby wash which doubles as shampoo. No matter which baby tub that you select it will be awkward and also the hell of an experience to a parent as the baby will be moving about. Also, the baby probably won't like the changing temperatures of the water that you will bathe them in. Parents may want to complete the bathroom as quickly as possible. The baby won't like their first two or three bathrooms as will need to correct.
When you receive a baby bathtub it is far better to have one which is contoured in the inside or possess a tub insert so the baby's head will be above the water and this is the way the support which will give the baby's head support. But if the bath is not contoured, a tub doesn't arrive with the inserts. The inserts are important to keep your baby's head up out of the water. You will realize that the baby tubs are made to match a sink, then convert into a tub that you'll have the ability to put in a normal bathtub as soon as your baby can sit up. There are tubs that are 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 if they're in the womb.
These types of tubs do not come highly recommended, either. The rationale that these tubs are not thought of highly is that they become very hazardous. This sort of tub can float when in the normal tub and possibly tip over. Another feature which you might wish to consider when purchasing a baby bathtub is that the layout has to be contoured so that the baby doesn't slip around too much. You also may need a temperature indicator or temperature strip which will tell you that your water might be too hot which is wonderful to have as this can help you regulate the water properly. You might also use your elbow to check the water, since the elbow is among the very sensitive areas of the human body.
