Keep bath time healthy, safe & fun with great bath essentials! We've rounded up the best baby bath essentials on the market to help you choose the one most suited to you & your little ones needs. We have also got top tips to help with baby bonding, bath safety and bath time with your bub. 
 

Bonding Benefits of Bathtime

Before we jump into the best baths of 2020, let's talk about how this special time can be used for bonding with your baby.

We all know bathtime. It can be challenging at times, however here at Baby Village we encourage new mummies and daddies to view it as the perfect time to bond with your baby. This time in the splash zone can also be extremely rewarding as you and your little one get to spend some quality time with each other, and as a parent, you get to learn more about what your bub does and doesn’t like about a bath. 

The reasoning behind this bonding is due to the skin-to-skin contact that is unavoidable when bathing your baby, as well as being highly crucial for a lasting and loving early developing relationship. The bath also allows for a tech-free zone, and for a bit of mummy relaxation after what can often be quite exhausting days with your bub.

Now for Bath Safety!

It's important to remember that once you've chosen a bath, it doesn't stop there! Finding a safe bathtime routine for you and your bub, or toddler, is crucial. Before you start the bathing process, parents should get everything for during and after ready, such as nappies and towels, so that you can spend the entire time supervising. 

Babies and children under five need to be supervised by an adult at all times, it is important even if you have young adult children, not to leave them solely responsible over bath time. The temperature of the bath is also very important. The ideal temperature for a baby bath is between 37°C and 38°C, otherwise if it is too hot it could lead to scalding. 

Spending about 5-10 minutes bathing and playing with your baby will not only keep them clean, but will also aid their multi-sensory learning and it will be fun for your bub.
