Yes, the idea of bathing your newborn can sound terrifying. And of course you should of course be careful. But also bear in mind that your baby’s discovery of the magic of water, of what it feels like to be immersed in a warm, bubbly aquatic cocoon, is nothing short of a magical sensory experience. It also makes for very sweet photo ops. That being said, from the best baby bath tub to a great baby bath chair, the right gear can boost the fun level when it’s baby bath time.

But before you purchase a small bath tub, consider where you’ll place it and check the dimensions carefully. If you hope to use the baby bath for months to come, look into one that adjusts as your little one grows so you don’t need to keep replacing it. Some tubs fold away, if you have space shortages, while others have built-in sensors to track water temperature.
