Mommy Must Have: Wash Pod / European Baby Bath Tub

Before the last pregnancy, someone had sent me a video of a baby in a washpod a.k.a. European bath tub.

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.

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.

6 Months+

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!).
