Master Bath Tub Pictures - Baby bathtubs make it easier on the parents as they are a more compact place 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 restricts the baby from making a great deal of movement when in a tub. Some tubs have a foam-lined contoured interior so a baby can unwind in a semi-upright position. If your baby becomes six months old, the baby will end up too large to have a bath in a baby tub, all though you can find tubs that will accommodate a newborn or toddler weighing around twenty-five lbs.
At this time it's the right time to move to a regular size tub. You will put in the tub just enough water so that it's very shallow and also test the water to make sure that it isn't overly hot. The first bath you provide your baby ought to be sort of a test run. What we mean by that maybe, it ought to be a sponge bath and not a true bathroom. You will need to wait before you give your baby a true bathroom because you need to wait until the stub of the umbilical cord falls off. After umbilical cord does drop off, you may offer your baby a bath every day if you wish. You may want to dial it back as far as providing a bath daily because your baby's skin will dry out very easily. So it would probably be a good idea to provide a bath maybe three days throughout the course of a week.
There are a couple things that you ought to have available when you bathe your baby, for example, a soft towel preferably a hooded one to cradle your infant's head, a baby washcloth and an unscented hypoallergenic baby wash that doubles as shampoo. No matter which baby tub that you select it'll be awkward and also the heck of an experience to a parent because the baby will be moving around. Also, the baby most likely will not enjoy the changing temperatures of the water that you will bathe them in. Parents may want to finish the bathroom as promptly as possible. The baby will not enjoy their first couple of bathrooms as will need to adjust. Remember to keep a hand on your baby when giving the tub to protect the baby from moving under the water.
If you get a baby bathtub it's far better to have one that is contoured in the inside or have a tub insert so the infant's head will be over the water and this is the way the support that will provide the infant's head support. But if the tub isn't contoured, a tub doesn't come with the inserts. The inserts are important to keep your baby's head up from the water. You will realize that the baby tubs are created to fit a sink, then convert to a tub that you will have the ability to place in a regular bathtub as soon as your baby is able to sit up. There are tubs that are just like a bucket that includes a foam insert that will hold your baby up vertically in the water and makes the baby feel as if they are in the uterus.
These kinds of tubs don't come highly recommended, either. The reason that these tubs aren't thought of highly is that they become very dangerous. This sort of tub can float when in the regular tub and possibly tip over. Another feature that you may want to think about when buying a baby bathtub is that the layout has to be contoured so that the baby doesn't slide around too much. You could also want a temperature indicator or temperature strip that will tell you that your water may be too hot which is wonderful to have as this will allow you to regulate the water properly. You can also use your elbow to test the water, as the elbow is one of the very sensitive areas of the human body.
