I was excited to receive this product at my baby shower because I had heard a lot about it and it just looked adorable in pictures. I was not disappointed when I opened it and saw a beautiful turquoise color flower that felt like memory foam when pressed down upon. My first thoughts were how soft it was and how cute and different it was. When I gave my baby her first bath in it, she had this precious smile on her face! She was so tiny and this was so comfortable for her to lay on and so soft on her delicate skin. Even my little toddler loved it and wanted to use it in her big girl tub! I honestly love this tub, and it's so portable that you can take it to a hotel, grandma's house, or even use it in the sink. It does not take up much space at all and it is very easy to keep clean. My only issue with it is how hard it is to make sure all the water is wrung out of the flower when you're done using it; plus, it takes a while to dry out. With that being said, this is a must-have item for any parent that wants convenience, comfort, and an adorable way to bathe their little one at an affordable price of $39.99.
When I saw this as a first time mom, I immediately knew I was going to get this for my baby. The name says it all---luxurious. My first impressions of the product were the how pretty the color of the tub was (a pale pastel green) and the intricate design of the tub itself with a shower head, cushion sling, the jets and the overall size of the tub. Here are my favorite things and comments about this product.
PROS: the pretty pastel colors it comes in; the shower head unit is removable so you can put it in a standard tub as baby gets older; tub is big enough to grow with your child (my tiny toddler still loves it!!); the jets keep the bath truly feeling like a spa and gives baby that soothing vibration; motorized jet can also create bubbles for baby to enjoy; newborn sling with cushion is mesh and lightweight and can be used outside of this tub; thickness of the inside of the tub keeps temperature warmer than other tubs
CONS: This tub was used a lot but the motor stopped working after about 9 months, so that meant no more shower head or jets or bubbles. While we still continue to use the tub and sling with our second baby, it would have been great for the motor to have lasted longer. Also, the price may scare some people away at $64.99, but it truly is a miniature spa for any baby.
Summer Infant Lil' Luxuries Whirlpool, Bubbling Spa and Shower
This tub is cute, nothing too frilly. Though I think it may be a stretch to call the tub a whale, it does its job! This particular tub has three different "stages" of adjustment: newborn, infant, and sitters. As a newborn, my son LOVED this tub, and I did, too! The newborn sling is great. It cradles the baby perfectly, isn't slippery, and has a nice cushion. The newborn sling sits up high out of the water, so you can decide how deep to fill the tub, depending on the weight of your baby and how far down he/she is in the tub. The infant stage has not been as functional for our particular baby. At 6 months,the newborn sling makes the tub too short for him, so we had to adjust to the second stage, where the sling's bottom shifts from the end of the tub to down inside, creating a "prop." He is not quite sitting up on his own. Our issue is that our baby slides down if you aren't holding him. Because of this, we either have to put very little water in the tub (he gets cold this way... and cranky) or we have to hold him while bathing, meaning it's a two-person job. Not ideal. However, I think that once he can sit up well on his own, we'll be able to use it again.
I received this product in exchange for reviews but all opinions are my own. This is a cool 2-stage baby tub that also functions as a digital scale and water thermometer. Upon opening, this tub was a lot larger than expected. It takes up quite a bit of space, but can grow with your baby all the way until 24 months (and longer if your toddler is smaller). The tub has a curved, ergonomic base with a non-slip pad for baby to relax on, and it’s upright position is perfect for letting baby splash their legs and be engaged while bathing. It also has a crotch peg that goes between baby’s legs (more toward the feet) that helps stabilize them and can be removed as baby grows. The water thermometer and digital scale require 3 AAA batteries to operate. The water thermometer continuously updates to ensure that baby is comfortable, and to let you know to adjust the water accordingly....very cool feature! The digital scale is kind of hard to use if your baby is wiggling around, but works with or without water. It automatically adjusts the weight if water is used. You can convert to kilos or pounds, and it has a nice memory function that allows you to view previous weight records. My favorite things about this tub are the drain plug that makes it easy to get the water out, the design is well-suited for babies to prop up and great for reflux babies, and it grows with your child up to 44 pounds. The only negatives are that it’s difficult to get an accurate reading for the scale when baby is moving around, and I don’t see this being ideal for an infant less than 3 months old because it is so large. I would opt for the Blooming Bath until baby is big enough for this tub. It’s also on the expensive side, but you get a lot of cool features that come along with it and it will last a long time. Don’t forget to take advantage of the 1 year warranty on this tub too!
I received this product in exchange for reviews but all opinions are my own. There are TONS of baby tubs on the market, both simple and extravagant, and I love finding unique products that get the job done so I was delighted to be able to try this one out. This bathtub has so many wonderful features, and the company prides itself in being the world’s only safety cushion bathtub. Upon receiving the product, I was very pleased at the color options that were elegant and pleasant to look at. I went with the mint green which is perfect for a gender neutral theme and it was just as lovely in person as in the photos. The other thing I noticed right away is how incredibly soft this tub is. Sobble’s claim to fame is that you can drop an egg from 5 feet into the tub and it will not break. YES, we tested, and YES IT’S TRUE!!! With marshmallow softness, this is a baby’s dream tub to relax in. It’s ergonomic design allows the tub to grow with your baby starting out with a reclining position and a stopper for newborns and a sitting position with removable stopper for 6 months and older. The tub can be used all the way up to 18 months, and because of its flexible and compact size, it can be used in standard sinks, bathtubs, or on the floor making it extremely versatile. I love how lightweight it is and so easy to clean. I also love how the stopper can be moved and positioned depending on your child’s age, which is a huge plus, especially since my babies are taller. The final features that have me raving about this tub are the thermometer and insulation. Regular plastic tubs do not retain heat well so the water turns cold easily. This bathtub is unique in that it essentially “traps” the heat keeping your baby’s bath water warm through the entire time. There is also an integrated thermometer located at the bottom that shows the ideal temperature and warns if the water is too hot. This is so cool! With so many awesome features, the only negative I can even give is the price point. At $95, this is an expensive product that may not meet everyone’s budget. However, it would make a perfect baby shower gift with the many different colors to choose from and even comes in a great gift package. This was named one of the 2018 ABC Baby Expo’s Top 10 Baby Products, and if you purchase it you will see why!
I received this product in exchange for reviews but all opinions are my own. Any parent knows the difficulties of clipping baby’s (or toddler’s) nails and the fear that comes with possibly injuring them. This electric nail trimmer takes the fear out and makes trimming baby’s nails a breeze. It comes with 4 filing discs that are based on your baby’s age allowing it to grow with your child. It has two gentle speeds and is easy to grip with an anti-slip edge. I love how safe and completely painless this is for my babies. No more struggling to get them to hold still or worrying that I’m getting too close to their skin. It’s very lightweight and portable and can even be tossed in the diaper bag since it doesn’t take up much room. It’s also very quiet and efficient, so I mostly use this when my babies are asleep since it doesn’t wake them! Some parents say this takes longer than actually just clipping baby’s nails, but that’s debatable considering you’re going up against squirming and wiggling while making sure not to cut or harm your baby. Also, I end up filing their nails a lot of the time after clipping anyway to get rid of sharp edges, so it evens out. Every mom needs one of these and new moms need to make sure and put this on their registries!
I received this product in exchange for reviews but all opinions are my own. I was excited to try this product out because my daughter HATES her hair being brushed and will run away screaming if I come anywhere near her with a regular brush. I admit I was skeptical because of the price, but once I tried it on my toddler I was so relieved I did. She loved how small and compact it was. She could hold it and use it herself and she did! She took to the pretty rainbow colored design immediately. The tiny bristles were perfect for getting tangles out without ripping her hair. The secret of this magic brush is that it goes with your hair instead of against it and , therefore pulling it. My daughter has fine straight hair with little mini curls at the end and she never once acted uncomfortable. She even brushes mommy's hair with it now! If you have a child that has a difficult time getting their hair brushed or a child that has hair that is unruly, this is definitely a must-have. They even have a bigger version for older kids and adults!
I received this product in exchange for a review, but all opinions are my own. This sweet rabbit is not only a great starter for oral hygiene, but doubles as one of my babies favorite teething toys. It has two finger puppet holes, so you can use the rougher (still soft) side to scrub baby’s teeth. He thinks we’re playing and his two little teeth get cleaned. He’s not quite ready for a real toothbrush, as he fights me tooth and nail.(no pun intended) This is a perfect compromise until he’s ready to step up to toothbrushing more often!
I received this product in exchange for a review, but all opinions are my own. This is such a cool set! It comes with a little baby toothbrush, which is smaller, has a great grip, and even has an attachment that keeps the brush at a good distance from your babies mouth. (No gagging!!) The toothbrush has a red patch of bristles that shows how much toothpaste to use. It also comes with another brush/gum massager that my one year old loves! He chews on the gum massager to help with teething and it cleans his tongue at the same time! This is one of my favorite finds!
I love this silicone fish for bath time as much as my babies do! It is so soft on their skin and they like to play with it as a toy as well. There are two sides with a light color with shorter bristles that are used to wash the body and a dark color with longer bristles used for washing baby's head. This is especially efficient in cradle cap. The best part is that it cleans easily and is mold resistant. All you have to do is wring it out when you're finished and that's it! This is a great find and I will be purchasing another!
I received this product in exchange for reviews but all opinions are my own. Every parent will add a bath towel and washcloths to their registry or receive them as a gift when baby is born. But, not every parent will receive towels and washcloths like THESE. Imagine your baby washing off with the softest washcloth you've ever felt and then getting out of the nice warm bath with a cozy towel that feels like they are snuggled up in a cloud! These are luxury items that are not only eco-friendly and made from bamboo fibers, but they are also naturally antibacterial and hypoallergenic. They are perfect for any baby but especially those with skin sensitivities. I also found these towels to be more absorbent than other towels we use. They come in several neutral designs and are packaged perfectly for gift giving. They are also very large and thick and can grow with baby into their toddler years (my toddler LOVES this towel). The only negative that I have seen (and read from other reviewers) is that they snag easily and threading starts to unravel some when washed, even on delicate as instructed. DO NOT pull the strings...simply cut them off and it will look fine. Other than that, I would definitely recommend these products for any baby shower registry!
Channing and Yates Bamboo Towel and Washcloths
I received this product in exchange for reviews but all opinions are my own. Any parent with a toddler knows that hand washing and brushing their teeth is essential and also a huge step toward independence. This company saw a need for something more portable to assist your little one at the sink and came up with this genius product. It comes in five different colors and is free of BPA, PVC, and Phthalates making it a safe option for your child. It fits almost all faucet sizes and I love that the pieces detach for easy cleaning and are dishwasher safe! The extender was easy to attach to the faucet and held up nicely without slipping off. My toddler could easily reach the water without me lifting her. Not only does this save me from back pains, it helps my daughter feel accomplished and independent knowing she could do this on her own. These are so handy around the house with toddlers (or anyone that needs a boost reaching the sink water) and also great to toss in the diaper bag for traveling. This product also comes with a lifetime warranty and the customer service is wonderful. This is truly a must-have item and for the price, you can get a couple without breaking the bank!
I received this product in exchange for reviews but all opinions are my own. ATTENTION PARENTS OF TODDLERS....what if I told you there was a clean and mess-free way to potty train?? If you’re like me then you would want to jump on that train immediately. Upon opening, nothing stands out about this potty. It’s quite simple in looks with no silly character, no noises or songs, and it’s just a plain white mini-toilet with a grey seat. Not sold yet?? Me neither...but WAIT!!! This potty comes with 30 non-toxic, biodegradable liners that are FLUSHABLE! You simply place the liners around each side of the toilet below the seat. Once your child is done going to the potty, you step on the pedal to close the bag and flush it down the toilet!!! This means you NEVER have to TOUCH or SMELL it. Not to mention it will save you precious time not having to clean the potty after every bathroom trip! I love how easy it is to use, and it takes some of the stress out of potty training. My toddler has taken to it and fits in the seat well, and the curvature design on the seat helps her bottom stay comfortable and in position to go without sliding around. The liners can be purchased separately when you run out which is nice. This potty can also grow with your child and is recommended from 18 months all the way to age 4 (or 50 lbs). It also has a toddler lock on the side to keep curious hands from trying to get to the liners. This potty may not come with all the bells and whistles to entertain your child, but it makes up for it with an innovative and easy-to-use concept that keeps everyone cleaner! Yes, it’s pricey but BUY THIS ...you won’t regret it!!
I received this product in exchange for reviews but all opinions are my own. Every parent knows potty training can feel like an endless battle and keeping a toddler interested is key. This product is so cute and unique because of it's kid-friendly design. The colors are bright and the characters are whimsical and entertaining. My toddler took to it immediately and WANTED to go potty when I explained what it was for. It comes in many different animal characters to go with your child's bathroom theme that are all equally adorable. Their "kooky" eyes are the toilet paper holder, and they simply stick to the wall via double-sided adhesive strips so no drilling or installation! This product is a winner and makes potty training fun for my toddler, and it's even cute for older kids that are past this stage as well!
I received this product in exchange for reviews but all opinions are my own. Let me start by saying that this will be updated as potty training progresses. My toddler has just recently started potty training and I will jump through hoops and back to make it more fun for her and less challenging for me. This product caught my eye because of it's rave reviews on Amazon, and for good reasons. You will probably think like I did and say to yourself "How in the world are a doll, a potty and a book going to help my child learn to potty?" The answer is simple...the creator of this product was a genius and went inside a child's mind to determine what would be most helpful and beneficial for the CHILD to learn to potty train instead of the parent. The doll is customizable with different color skin and different genders for all children and they have their own potty to go along with your child as they navigate potty training. The book for parents has an abundance of tips and knowledge of what signs to look for and how to help during certain situations. The child's book is perfect for their learning level and is informative in a way that a toddler can understand with pictures for them to see and words that are familiar without becoming overwhelming. This also comes with cards that are used as a reward system for fun time when your child does potty, so there is something for them to look forward to. My child has become a fan of "Tot the Doll" and is recognizing when she needs to use the bathroom. This is a PROCESS and will probably be a LONG one like most parents experience, but this is just the right product to keep her interested and help her learn. I definitely recommend this product and I will update this as she progresses!
