We are reviewing the European Baby Bath Bucket – aka Washpod. We are giving the baby a dip and seeing what we think of this new baby product.
Before the last pregnancy, someone had sent me a video of a baby in a Washpod baby bath a.k.a. European baby bath bucket and I thought, oh hell no. But then I started thinking about it and it kind of made sense.
European Baby Bath Tub – Wash Pod
I saw a picture of the tub and thought for sure that I’d never use it, it look like something my baby would drown in and I might as well wash him in a bucket.
Well, here I am again, biting my own lip and slapping my hand for judging before trying. Yes, this is just like bathing your kid in a bucket but my colicky baby liked it so here we are suggesting it to any of you new moms. (New parents make sure you check out our baby memes!)
Easy to Store
This baby tub is easy to store. It sits in the bath tub – and it’s not all awkward like the old school baby bath tubs.
Easy to Clean
It’s just like a bucket. There isn’t a drain, just fill it up with soapy water and dump. That’s it.
Bathe the Kid Anywhere, Almost.
We have yet to bathe Izaiah in the actual bathroom – instead, we just carry the bath tub into his room (fortunately the bathroom is connected) and wash him in there.
Ease of Use
I don’t know about you, but bathing a baby has never been easy. The baby fusses, laying the kid in a tub is funky, so much so I just ended up washing my first 2 kids with a wash cloth holding them the first several months.
With the European Bath Tub – Washpod – Izaiah has never really freaked out in this tub and neither have I. As weird as it looks, the baby feels comfortable in the tight space. You easily have a grip on the kid.
We’ve used this baby bath tub since day 1. Izaiah still loves it. The biggest problem now is he loves to stand and I can’t get his legs to unbuckle to get him in this!
As he continues sitting for longer periods of time, we’ll move him to the rubber ducky tub (review to come!).

Our post about the Baby Washpod was originally posted in 2010 when our now tween was just a newborn. Here is the newer version of the washpod, it’s the BEABA by Shnuggle baby bath tub.
Like the Washpod, the Beaba comes highly rated by parents and has a drain plug for easy draining. This is product is great if you need baby colic help.
