Product Review: Caress Forever Collection Body Washes

Puj Snug Ultra Soft Spout Cover Review

Puj Spout CoverThe older my daughter gets, the more she loves bath time and playing in the water. Now that she’s been crawling and pulling herself up to stand, we’ve taken extra measures to ensure her safety and to protect her from potential mishaps. Bath time is no different – we have a soft foam spout cover for our bathtub to protect our baby from injury. We received a sample of the Puj Snug Ultra Soft Spout Cover free of charge for the purpose of review.

The Puj Snug Ultra Soft Spout Cover is made of a soft, durable, high quality EVA foam material that is protective and forgiving. The one we received is a pretty green color and all Puj made of 100% reclaimed material, making this product a nice choice in favor of green living. This spout cover is shaped like an adorable elephant whose trunk hangs down over the spout to protect baby’s delicate head and skin from bumps and scrapes.

The Puj spout cover is very easy to install onto the bathtub’s spigot and it has a hole at the top to allow you to adjust the shower and water settings. The foam is very easy to clean, yet it seems to stay relatively dry and clean on its own. A good wipe and rinse every so often keeps it clean and hygienic.

I did not notice any unusual odors or anything that could be considered a “con.” This spout cover took only seconds to fit over the spout, and I highly recommend it.

You can find this product in a pretty green (Kiwi) or blue color (Aqua), and also in white. The Puj Snug Ultra Soft Spout Cover retails for around $9.99 to $15 at Puj.com, Amazon.com, Diapers.com, BabyEarth, AlbeeBaby.com, and Newegg.com, to name a few.

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

Baby in BathIt’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
