It’s no secret that babies are messy creatures. From the messes they make in diapers to the many times they spit up or empty their stomachs completely, moms and dads have come to expect an emergency bath here and there. Even if baby has a particularly good few days or a week, they still get to enjoy a regular bath time here and there, even from their earliest days as a newborn. That’s why it is so important to ensure you have a good baby bathtub, bath seat, sling or other piece of baby bathing equipment.
Here are four different pieces of baby bathing equipment to help you keep your infant happy and clean. Check out the pros, cons, and details of each baby bathtub, baby wash basin, and baby bath seat or sling to help you decide which one might be best suited for your little one.
Babies R Us Bath Sling
This product retails for less than $8 and it certainly has gotten its fair share of use in our home. We received this item as a gift at our baby shower and it has held up at home and on vacation. The bath sling reminds me of a hammock or other comfortable, flexible piece of furniture that has some ‘give’ to it. We have used this bath sling seat from Babies R Us since day one with our baby girl, and it has served us well.
You can buy the sea creature bath sling at Babies R Us or online at Babiesrus.com.

Cons of Babies R Us Bath Sling
