Tonight is the dreaded bath night! I don’t like bath time for many reasons. For one, it takes a lot of effort. Just getting the kids into the bath is a chore in itself. No one can ever just get in. There is always the struggle to get undressed, the sudden need to pee, and of course all of the last minute toys to gather.
Once I finally have the kids into the tub, no one wants to get out. I end up sitting there for what seems like forever so they can make me one last tea. Then I practically break my back bending over to get everyone washed. The hair washing is the worst part when you have two girls. I try so hard to get all of the soap out and to not to get water in their eyes. By the end I am usually soaked. It can all be a little too much.
There are so many types of products out there to help make baby’s bath night not so difficult. Over the years I have seen so many new and really great bath time essentials. Many of which I wish were around when my first daughter was born. These products are designed to make bath time much easier. Hopefully some of these will work for you as well as they have worked for me.

This tub is amazing and real back saver! It is designed to be the right height so that you don’t have to strain your back while giving your baby a bath. The bath tub is made of three parts, the seat, tub, and stool. The bath seat can be removed and used by itself in the kitchen sink or bath tub. When your baby is finally able to sit up they can use the tub by itself. The stool can also be used by itself as a toddler step stool.
I absolutely love Aveeno baby care products. I used them for both of my girls and never had any skin irritation. This gift set also includes skin care items for mommy, which is really great! Not to mention these products smell amazing and are really gentle on your skin. My favorite Aveeno baby bath product is the Calming Comfort bath wash. I always used it when I gave my baby girls a bath. I noticed it helped them to sleep better through the night.
Bath toys are a must have for your baby’s bath time. Kids love to play in the bath so why not make it fun with some cute little animals. These foam animal pieces are great because they are soft and can stick to the tub and tiles when they wet. They are easy to clean and dry out quickly. Your baby will really love chewing on them too! I like to use bath time as learning time. Quiz your little one about what color or animal they are.
I love this Munchkin bath caddy. It fits across your tub and is perfect to store toys and bath soaps. I have used other caddys in the past that have suction cups to stick to the wall. The problem is that they never stay put. If they get too heavy or wet they end up falling down. With this caddy you don’t have to worry about it falling. The tiny drain holes help everything to dry out quickly and prevents mold. I like to use it as a barrier between my little one and the faucet to prevent bumps. It can easily be removed for showers or cleaning.
This bath apron is so useful! No one wants to get soaked while giving your kids a bath. This bath apron is designed to keep you dry and doubles as a towel for your baby. The apron folds up and creates a pocket that is easy to put your baby in to dry them off. The bath mitten that is included also works great for getting your baby clean and is really soft. The apron is also available in other colors.
I cannot tell you how many times I made the bath water too hot! Without this thermometer I may have not noticed. I like to take really hot showers so I am probably not the best judge of water temperature. This bath thermometer lets you know when the bath water is at the perfect temperature. It indicates if the water is too hot or too cold. The bath thermometer gives you a little reassurance that your baby will be safe and comfortable during bath time.
This waterfall rinser is a life saver! The spout is designed so that you can easily rinse your child’s hair without getting water in their eyes. Any other cup would spill water all over. It is easy to hold and scoop up water. Before I had this rinser there was a lot of crying during bath time. This makes it so easy to rinse your child’s hair without the tears.
Lastly I don’t know where my knees would be if I didn’t have this Moby bath kneeler. It is a super soft cushion that protects your knees from the hard floors. It has a non-slip back so you don’t have to worry about is slipping around. The material is a wet suit fabric that dries out quickly. Anyone that kneels to bathe their kids needs to have this bath kneeler to prevent sore knees later.
