Review: The First Years Newborn-to-Toddler Bath Tub

The First Years Newborn-to-Toddler Bath Tub

As a first-time mummy, I was paranoid about the baby sliding off my arms when I bathed him, so I wanted a bath tub that ensured safety. After shopping around, I decided on The First Years Newborn-to-Toddler Bath Tub, which is one of my best buys for Baby V. Mine is the previous version with a green mesh sling, bought when it was steeply discounted at Isetan (in Kuala Lumpur).

The bath tub’s sling allows my hands to be free when bathing Baby V. Therefore, it is a breeze to add more water or grab the towel, even when he was a newborn. The clever design makes bathing baby a much safer, calmer and enjoyable experience. No wonder Baby V loves his daily bath!

Even my confinement lady commented the bath tub and recommended it to a friend with a preemie baby.

Pros:

  • Keeps hands free to reach for things when baby is having a bath
  • Comfortable padded head-rest
  • Newborn lies comfortably in sling when bathing
  • Safe — older baby can sit in tub without sliding down

Cons:

  • Small crevices that need a good scrub every now and then

Get Your Own

The First Years Newborn-to-Toddler Bath Tub is available in most major departmental and baby stores.

    May I know where you put this bath tub to bath baby? I bought this bath tub at takashimaya baby fair 2011 after reading your review. When i used it for first time after my baby was born, I put it on a table and not in the bath room, so I don’t need to bend my back. However I found the water was leaking from the sinkhole of the bath tub, and my floor was dipped with water after a short while. So my question is , is this bath tub supposed to be used in bath room only? The leaking water is product failure or it is designed to be used in bath room only?

      Hi Christine, we use it in either the wet or dry area of bathroom to bath baby. To prevent back ache, I sit on a small stool. The stopper works for us and water doesn’t drip out to wet the floor. We only remove the stopper after son has finished bathing, to empty the water. It’s possible that your bath tub has a faulty stopper.
