Two Person Clawfoot Bathtub - Baby bathtubs make it easier on the parents as they are a more compact spot to give your baby a tub. Wherever you're giving your baby a tub you'll need to keep a minumum of one hand on your baby at all times so that you can stop your baby from sliding under the water. You will find bathtubs that arrive with mesh or a liner of fabric inner cradle that restricts the baby from making a great deal of movement when in a bathtub. When a baby becomes six months old, the baby will become too large to take a bath in an infant bathtub, all though you can find bathtubs which can accommodate a newborn or toddler weighing up to twenty-five pounds.
At about nine months a baby will outgrow this kind of tub. At this time it is time to move to a regular size bathtub. You will put in the bathtub just enough water so that it is very shallow and also test the water to be sure that it is not too hot. The first bath you give your baby should be sort of a test run. What we mean by that maybe, it should be a sponge bath and not a legitimate bath. After umbilical cord does drop off, you may offer your baby a bath every day if you desire. You may want to dial it back up to giving a bath every day as your child's skin will dry out very 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 few 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 abysmal hypoallergenic baby wash that doubles as pulp. No matter which baby tub that you choose it'll be awkward and the hell of an adventure to a parent because the baby will be moving around. Also, the baby most likely won't enjoy the changing temperatures of the water that you will clean them in. Parents may want to finish the bath as promptly as possible. The baby won't enjoy their first two or three baths as will need to adjust.
If you get a baby tub it is far better to have one that is contoured in the inside or possess a bathtub insert so the baby's head will be above the water and this is the way the support that will give the baby's head support. But if the tub is not contoured, a bathtub doesn't arrive with the inserts. The inserts are important to keep your child's head up from the water. You will find 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 when your baby is able to sit up. You will find tubs 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 if they're in the uterus.
The reason that these tubs aren't thought of tremendously is that they become very dangerous. This sort of bathtub can float when in the regular tub and maybe tip over. Another feature that you might want to consider when buying a baby tub is that the layout has to be contoured so that the baby doesn't slip around too much. You also may need a temperature index or temperature strip that will tell you that your water might be too hot which is nice to have as this can help you regulate the water properly. You might also use your elbow to test the water, as the elbow is among the very sensitive parts of the human body.
