I've been looking for a bathtub for a while, and everytime I read the reviews of the products online people have bad things to say. Anyone know of a good one to use that is soft, sturdy, and where my baby wont be too cold?

Hey,I don't know the exact name of the one I bought..A friend of mine is having her baby on thursday so she wanted to borrow it until I have my 2nd in may:)but it's a bath spa...It has soft foam on the bottom and it comes with a mesh lounging chair for them to lay on,it also has a temperature gage on the inside of the tub to ensure the water being the right temp.,It also has a shower compartment that you can use or not you can take it out or leave it in (your choice)I used it the first few months then I started using a cup to wash his hair.I'm sorry I don't know the exact name but I bought it at toys'r'us and It was I think 50$ or so(canadian).Good luck,I know I came across alot of cheap looking tubs that I wouldn't of put him in!If I get a chance to ask my friend the exact make I'll post it later:)

I also forgot what brand mine was. It was grey with blue lining. I liked it because it had a temperature strip at the bottom along with a drain spout. There were very few "frills" about it, but it worked just fine. I wouldn't stress too much about the newborn baths. I didn't give my girls very many baths as newborns. They were petrified of water. When they could sit up, we bathed them in the tub with a bath ring. It was much more fun for them.

We used the first years newborn-toddler bath for both our kids. It's pretty standard, and we didn't have any problems with it.

I have this tub at home:
I never used the spa/shower like I thought I would and it's HUGE to store. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend it, even though it was comfy.
I got another tub that folded up for storage. Unfortunately for me, I sent this on to my MIL's. I wish I had kept it. My advice when tub shopping is, make sure you get one that you can store easily in your home. Otherwise, you have a bathtub on your deep freeze 24/7. =)

I have the Fisher Price Rainforest bath center. I have one major gripe about it...
When using the hammock for newborns, I noticed that her butt/back region turns red because of the way she is resting on the "seat" part of the tub meant for older babies. This causes discomfort, and I feel bad for her.
Other than that, I love it! she doesnt slide down too far (she slides a little, but hey, babies are slippery). I can bathe her pretty easily in it. and it comes with toys (which she dosnt care for at this point in time)
