Bathtub Lifts For Handicapped - Baby bathtubs make it easier on the parents as they are a more streamlined place to give your infant a tub. No matter where you're giving your baby a tub you'll need to keep at least one hand on your baby at all times so that you can stop your baby from sliding under the water. There are bathtubs which arrive with mesh or a liner of cloth inner cradle that limits the infant from making a lot of motion when in a bathtub. Some bathtubs have a foam-lined contoured interior so a baby can unwind in a semi-upright place. If your baby becomes six months old, the infant will become too big to take a bath in a baby bathtub, all though you can find tubs that will accommodate a newborn or toddler weighing up to twenty-five lbs.
At this time it is the right time to move into a regular size bathtub. You will put in the bathtub just enough water so that it is quite shallow and also test the water to be sure that it is not too hot. The first bath you give your infant should be kind of a test run. What we mean by that maybe, it should be a sponge bath rather than a true bath. You'll need to wait until you give your infant a true bath as you need to wait until the stub of the umbilical cord falls off. After umbilical cord does fall off, you can give your infant a bath every day if you wish. You might want to dial it back as far as giving a bath daily as your child's skin will dry out quite easily. Therefore it'd probably be a good idea to give a bath maybe 3 times during the course of a week.
There are a few things that you should have on hand when you wash your baby, such as, a soft towel rather a hooded one to cradle your infant's mind, a baby washcloth and an unscented hypoallergenic baby wash which doubles as pulp. Whichever infant tub that you select it'll be awkward and the hell of an experience to a parent as the infant 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 might want to complete the bath as quickly as possible. The infant won't enjoy their first two or three baths as will need to correct.
If you get a baby tub it is far better to have one which is contoured from the inside or have a bathtub insert so the infant's head will be above the water and this is how the support which will give the infant's head support. Now, if the tub is not contoured, a bathtub does not arrive with the inserts. The inserts are important to maintain your child's head up from the water. You'll find that the baby tubs are made to match a sink, then convert into a bathtub that you'll be able to put in a regular tub as soon as your infant can sit up. There are bathtubs that are just like a bucket which comes with a foam insert that will hold your infant up vertically from the water and makes the baby feel as if they are in the uterus.
The reason that these tubs aren't thought of highly is that they become very dangerous. This sort of bathtub can float when in the regular tub and possibly tip over. Another feature which you might wish to think about when purchasing a baby tub is that the layout has to be contoured so that the infant does not slide around too much. You also may need a temperature indicator or fever strip which will inform you that your water might be too hot which is nice to have as this will help you regulate the water correctly. You can even use your elbow to test the water, as the elbow is one of the very sensitive areas of the human body.
