Bathtub 54 X 42 - Baby bathtubs make it easier on the parents as they are a more streamlined place to give your baby a bath. Wherever you're giving your baby a bath you will have 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 which come with mesh or a liner of fabric inner cradle that limits the baby from making a great deal of movement when in a tub. Some bathtubs 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 become too big to have a bath in an infant tub, all though it's possible to discover tubs that will accommodate a newborn or toddler weighing around twenty five lbs.
At this time it is time to move into a normal size tub. You may put in the tub only enough water so that it is quite shallow and also test the water to make certain that it isn't overly hot. The first bath you give your baby should be sort of a test run. What we mean by that perhaps, it should be a sponge bath rather than a true bathroom. You will have to wait before you give your baby a true bathroom as you need to wait patiently until the stub of the umbilical cord falls off. After umbilical cord does drop off, you can give your baby a bath every day if you wish. You might want to dial it back as far as providing a bath every day because your baby's skin will dry out quite easily. Therefore it'd probably be a great idea to give a bath maybe 3 days during the course of a week.
There are a couple 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 which doubles as shampoo. No matter which baby tub that you choose it'll be awkward and the heck of an adventure to a parent as the baby will be moving about. Also, the baby probably won't enjoy the changing temperatures of the water that you will clean them in. Parents might want to complete the bathroom as quickly as possible. The baby won't enjoy their first couple of bathrooms as will have to correct. Do not forget to keep a hand on your baby when giving the bath to protect the baby from moving under the water.
When you receive a baby bathtub it is far better to have one which 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 which will give the baby's head support. Now, if the bath isn't contoured, a tub does not come with the inserts. The inserts are important to maintain your baby's head up out of the water. You will realize that the baby tubs are made to fit a sink, then convert into a tub that you will be able to place in a normal bathtub when your baby is able to sit up. You will find bathtubs that are just like a bucket which comes with 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.
The rationale that these tubs aren't thought of tremendously is that they become very dangerous. This type of tub can float when in the normal tub and maybe tip over. Another feature which you may wish to think about when buying a baby bathtub is that the design must be contoured so that the baby does not slide around too much. You could also want a temperature index or fever strip which will tell you that your water may be too hot which is nice to have as this will help you regulate the water properly. You can also use your elbow to test the water, as the elbow is among the most sensitive parts of the human body.
