Baby Bath Tubs

Best Baby Bath Tubs

Best For: Baby

Bathing an infant can be a little, okay a lot, scary. Just how do you manage a fragile little one that’s all wet and slippery? Well, practice and patience, of course, but also a great sturdy, accessible bath tub. Here are the best ones in our book.

What to look for

1. Stability. Nothing is more important than choosing a tub that stays put while you’re rubbing down your baby. Be sure to test possible bath tubs by applying some pressure and seeing how it holds up.
2. Accessibility. You always want your baby’s within arm’s reach while he’s in the tub, so choose a model that will easily fit on your sink or in your bathtub.
3. Technology. A bath tub with no bells and whistles will get your baby just as clean as one that’s totally pimped out, so it’s really up to you to decide how fancy you want your tub to be. Some come with built-in thermometers, which come in handy for making sure the bath water isn’t too hot.

Best Convertible Bath Tub

The First Years Newborn-to-Toddler Tub

Price: $18
Get Yours:

Pros: Designed for infants and toddlers, this convertible tub makes bathtime a breeze. Newborns can relax in the removable nylon hammock, while older babies can sit upright for splish-splashy fun. There’s even a handy compartment on the end for you to store a comb, brush, shampoo and bath gel.

Cons: This convertible bath tub is somewhat narrow, which could make it a little uncomfortable for plumper little ones.

Best Bucket-Style Bath Tub


Price: $25
Get Yours:

Pros: The design allows baby to sit upright, so the warm water surrounds her much like that in the womb. And unlike other “bucket-style” tubs, this one features legs for added stability.

Cons: The unique shape of the WashPOD also has it’s drawbacks. It’s ideal for infant which are small and can’t yet support their heads. As your baby grows, though, this tub will be a tight fit and could prove too constraining for your little one.

Best Technology

Cleanwater Infant Tub

Price: $89
Get Yours: Sears

Pros: A built-in digital thermometer lets you know when the water temperature is just right and the unique design creates a circulating flow inside the tub, with sidewall drains to let out the dirty water.

Cons: This tub is on the larger side, so you’ll need to set aside ample space to store. Also, the Cleanwater tub is only intended for babies who can sit upright unassisted, not all infants.
