Anti-bacterial Material. As we all have known, babies easily contacted germs and bacteria since their immune system is not yet fully developed. When using any baby product, in general, choosing products with antibacterial or antimicrobial property is a big plus. Bathmats with drainage holes are also a good choice. Drainage holes encourage circulation of water, thus reducing mildew and mild. Also, be wary of some manufacturers that make false claims. Always read best baby bathmat reviews and check forums to ask another users’ opinion.
Non slip surface. It never ceases to amaze me just how slippery a wet baby can be. Many bathtubs come with a non-slip surface or even a built-in bath seat to help keep your baby in place during bath time. Examine the rim of the bathtub. You are looking for two features, smooth, the rim of the bathtub should be smooth without any jagged pieces. This will prevent you from scraping your baby’s skin when taking him out or placing him in the bathtub. A padded headrest is a nice feature to look for. Overhang, if the rim of the bathtub overhangs the walls then it will be much easier to carry, especially when filled with water.
Absorbs water easily. For the best absorbency you will want to look for cotton. Cotton is very absorbent and doesn’t have to be super thick to do so. You want to dry your baby off as quickly as possible after they get out of the bath, so they do not catch cold. Durability. No one wants to have to replace their baby’s towels every few months. Look for fabrics that will hold up to frequent washes without the towels pilling. This can make the fabric rough to the touch which the baby will not like very much. Cotton will usually pill a lot due to the shorter fibers. Tightly knit towels will not pill as much so look for tight weaves.
Some baby bathtubs are designed to sit over single sinks, while others are designed to sit over double sinks. There are even customizable baby bathtubs that can fit over both. If the bathtub is too big for your sink, you will have to make room on a flat surface to wash your baby. Remember, a baby bathtub filled with water can be heavy to carry, so it is often best to set it up close to a water source.
