How We Chose These Bath tubs

Choosing a baby bath tub may be a little difficult if you do not know the things to look out for and this is an issue faced by a lot of parents looking to get a baby bath tub. In regards to that, we made inquiries and asked parents for their best options. When we had narrowed down our choices, we also carried out some research and looked into some of the features listed below.

Water Capacity

How much water does the tub have the capacity to hold? This is a major evaluation criterion. Some tubs may look large but may not be able to accommodate as much water as you would love. Only tubs that have the capacity to hold adequate water levels can be utilised in bathing larger toddlers or infants. All the tubs listed above can hold that required amount of water.

Price

The price of the bathtub is also another critical criteria. You do not want to purchase something that is too expensive or way over your budget. Always check the prices to be certain it is within your comfort zone.

Value

Despite the price of a product being budget-friendly, it might not be useful at all. This touches all the tests and selection methods listed in this subsection. Alternatively, a product might have a rather high price and its value will be worthwhile. Still, evaluating the value of a product is never that simple since there are products that are cheap and high in terms of price and value respectively.

Drainage

Do you want a tub that has a drain or one you have to turn over? Although this may not seem like a big deal, it could make cleaning the bath tub way more comfortable depending on your choice, Tipping the bath so as to drain out water is simple but cleaning may sometimes be difficult while drainage at the bottom although convenient, tends to leak over time. This is a factor to consider when purchasing your baby bath tub.

Sink independent and dependent bath tub

Dependent on the kind of bath tub you want to purchase for your baby, you may need to have a drain or water source. Some baby bath tubs have to be utilised in a bath tub or sink and cannot sit by themselves. Independent bath tubs can be utilised in any location. So ensure you put these into consideration before selecting a bath tub.

Storage

The amount of space you have for storage is a determining factor on the type of bath tub you want to purchase. It’s not logical purchasing a massive bath tub when you do not have adequate space for storing it. Choose a bath tub with a size that you can adequately store with ease (nil issues).

Age Group

Different baby bathtubs are constructed to accommodate a certain age group and this is dependent on its shape and size. Baby tubs for toddlers may not be ideal for newborns and vice versa. There are tubs available which can function for diverse age groups (like the ones above). So, ensure you consider this before making your next purchase.

Safety of the Bathtubs

Edges

Some tubs have sharp edges which are not ideal as it can result in injuries to both the baby and the parent. For the safest choice, look for bath tubs that have rounded edges as they would be unable to cause any harm.

Temperature Gauge

If you are bothered about harming your baby by accident, getting a bath tub with a temperature gauge can ensure this never happens. It always ensures you get the appropriate water temperature. If the water is too hot or cold, the gauge changes colour to warn you so you can make changes before placing your baby in the tub.

Tub Materials

There are numerous kinds of materials utilised in producing bath tubs. The major ones include soft foam/cloth and plastic. Plastic can be found with ease and doesn’t come at an expensive price. But ensure that regardless of the kind of materials used in creating your bath tub, it comes with a padding which would ensure your baby does not slip by accident. Essentially, safety is a must in this case.
