Comparative Review of Four Baby Bathtubs, Bath Seats, and Rinse Basins

Summer Infant Cushy Cradler Newborn Baby Bath

This baby bathtub has a soft foam type composition that won’t give you any worries as you put your newborn inside for her first bath. The Cushy Cradler Newborn Baby Bath is completely made of foam, making it a smart and safe choice for your tiny infant. This tub is a good size for babies from birth until they can sit up unassisted, and it can fit on most countertops, inside most bathtubs, or on the floor next to the shower or tub. I received a Cushy Cradler for the purpose of this review, and it is definitely the softest material used, short of the fabric bath sling.

This baby tub has a cradling design to keep your little one safe and snuggled in, while the bottom has a convenient drain plug to release the bathwater. This tub retails for $39.99 and can be purchased at, Target, and at other favorite baby stores.
