Created in Holland and endorsed by health care professionals, The Original Tummy Tub is a unique womb-shaped and sized bath that eases baby’s transition from a familiar, safe place to an unknown world.
The shape of the tub is based on a mothers womb which the baby is familiar and comfortable in.
Tummy Tub Benefits:
- Baby sits comfortably in tub with minimum support
- Easy to fill and empty
- Eases indigestion, gas, and colic while calming baby
- Uses less water, energy, and space than traditional baby tubs
- Meets the most stringent safety regulations worldwide
Perfect for us and water savingWe purchased the Tummy Tub after a demonstration at a baby show. We don't have a bath in our house or a good place to fill/place a baby bath. The kitchen sink wasn't an option either as it's hard-edged and quite large.
The first bath was nerve-wracking but I think that's the case for all first time parents regardless of the bath.
We have been using the tummy tub now for 4 months and we love it. Our LO sits up by herself in there now and plays with the water and her toys. It's great. We use it in the kitchen sink so there's no back straining.
Tip: wash and dry your baby's hair beforehand (hold them over the bath gently and rinse their hair with a cup - make sure you cover their ears). Once their hair is dry; undress them and then lather them with soap OR just water and rub them all over (under arms, fat rolls, hands and feet etc), then carefully (because they're slippery) place them in the tub to rinse off and relax.
Keep the lights low, put on nice music and fill the bath to where you feel comfortable - never above the line (take water out if there's too much). Enjoy!!
