I Tried 3 Baby Bath Tubs and Decided to Stick to This One

Having a hard time choosing a baby bath tub? 

When I was pregnant, I remember looking at my registry hoping to find a good bath tub that is not only affordable but also safe and functional. One that is comfortable but also transitions as my daughter gets bigger. 

It was only through trial and error that I found the perfect bath tub that met all my needs. Plus, it came with fun little toys!

First Year’s Sure Comfort Deluxe

As I mentioned before, I was looking for a bath tub that is both affordable and functional. I eventually came across one that caught my attention, the First Year’s Sure Comfort Deluxe bath tub.

Items and features that came with this tub:

  • Mesh sling
  • Tray for baby bath items
  • Padded headrest
  • Support for baby’s legs

My daughter’s first experience in this tub was great. She fit perfectly into the mesh sling, was comfortable and secured. However, as she grew bigger around 2-3 months old (while still using the mesh sling), I realized her head would crouched down making it quite uncomfortable.

I learned that it was because the recline was too high for her. I had to hold her head with one arm, while the other was busy washing and rinsing her body. It became inconvenient so I opted for a different bath tub.

Summer Splish ‘n Splash Newborn to Toddler Tub

My next bath tub of choice was the Summer Splish ‘n Splash Newborn to Toddler tub.

Items and features that came with this tub:

  • Mesh sling
  • Tray for baby bath items
  • Padded headrest
  • Support for baby’s legs
  • Deep tub for splashing and playing

This tub was fairly similar to the first one except that the tub was wider and more spacious.

The mesh sling seemed to work better for my daughter because she was no longer crouching in, which meant that the recline was lower, and she was able to move around more securely.

But as we transitioned to the next stage, the “supported sitter” stage, my daughter became more active and was continuously kicking and splashing around. Every time she kicked, her bottom would move a little and I was once again, met with the same fate of holding her with one arm while washing her with the other. Another inconvenience!

Fisher-Price 4-in-1 Sling n’ Seat Tub

You know how they always used to say, “a third time’s a charm”? Well in this case, it really was.

My next choice of bath tubs was the Fisher-Price 4-in-1 Sling n’ Seat tub (priced around $35-$40). Although it was a little well over my budget, I decided that if I needed a better bath tub, then this would be it.

Items and features that came with this tub:

  • Mesh sling
  • Support seat that helps with the “supported sitter” stage
  • Two bath toys: a blue squeeze bottle and an orange whale scoop
  • Curved back-support with a padded headrest for a comfortable recline
  • Hook for easy drying and space-saving storage
  • Support for baby’s legs

Since my daughter was in the “supported sitter” stage, I found that the best part about this bath tub was the support seat. The support seat kept my daughter secured in one place through all the kicking and splashing she made.

She was no longer sliding down her seat, as she did in previous tubs, and I didn’t have to worry about holding her with one hand while washing her with the other.

The little toys that came with the tub? They kept her company! She loved the showers that came out of the squeeze bottle and enjoyed the whale cup. I also like how the tub came with a hook for easy drying.

Overall, this bath tub lasted us until my daughter was able to bathe in a regular tub. We didn’t encounter any other difficulties while using it and if I were to have another baby in the future, I would buy the same one.
