Bathtubs For 4 Year Old - Baby bathtubs make it easier for the parents since they are a more streamlined spot to give your baby a tub. No matter where you're giving your baby a tub you will 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 that come with mesh or a liner of cloth inner cradle that limits the baby from making a lot of movement when in a tub. Some bathtubs have a foam-lined contoured interior so a baby can relax in a semi-upright position. If your baby becomes six months old, the baby will become too big to take a bath in an infant tub, all though you can find bathtubs which can accommodate a newborn or toddler weighing around twenty-five pounds.
At about nine months a baby will outgrow this type of tub. At this time it is time to move into a normal size tub. You will put in the tub only enough water so that it is very shallow and also test the water to make certain that it is not overly hot. The first bath you provide your baby should be sort of a test run. What we mean by that perhaps, it should be a sponge bath and not a legitimate bath. You'll need to wait before you give your baby a legitimate bath as you want to wait until the stub of the umbilical cord falls off. You might want to dial it back as far as giving a bath daily as your baby's skin will dry out very easily. Therefore it'd probably be a great idea to provide a bath maybe three days during the course of a week.
There are a few things that you should have on hand when you bathe your baby, such as, a soft towel preferably a hooded one to cradle your baby's head, a baby washcloth and an unscented hypoallergenic baby wash that doubles as pulp. Whichever baby tub that you select it'll be awkward and the hell of an adventure to a parent as the baby will be moving around. Additionally, the baby probably won't enjoy the changing temperatures of the water that you will clean them in. Parents might want to complete the bath as promptly as possible. The baby won't enjoy their first two or three bathrooms as will need to adjust. Remember to keep a hand on your baby when giving the tub to protect the baby from going under the water.
If you get a baby tub it is better to have one that is contoured in the interior or have a tub insert so the baby's head will be over the water and this is how the support that will provide the baby's head support. Now, if the tub is not contoured, a tub does not come with the inserts. The inserts are important to maintain your baby's head up from the water. You'll find that the baby tubs are created to fit a sink, then convert into a tub that you will have the ability to place in a normal tub when your baby can sit up. There are bathtubs that are just like a bucket that comes with a foam insert that can hold your baby up vertically in the water and makes the baby feel as though they are in the uterus.
The reason that these tubs aren't 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 that you may wish to consider when purchasing a baby tub is that the design must be contoured so that the baby does not slide around too much. You could also need a temperature index or fever strip that will inform you that your water may be too hot which is wonderful to have as this can allow you to regulate the water properly. You might also use your elbow to test the water, since the elbow is one of the very sensitive parts of the human body.
