you can bath a baby in a washing up tub (according to grandma), but the following products might make life a bit easier


1.  Baby bath or bath insert.  See our list of the best bath supports.

2. Kneeling mat.  The Koodi Parent Kneeling Mat saved our knees!   You could also use a folded up towel or gardening mat.

3. Teardrop sponge, to get into all those little creases. Buy here.

4. Plastic cup, to wash hair or rinse away bubbles. We like this whale shaped one from Skip Hop.

5. Hooded towel, to wrap baby up warm when getting out of the bath. The Cuddledry apron bath towel has a handy loop to put over your head so you can get your baby out hands free.
