Rave: Spa Baby/Tummy Tub

At the beginning of my third trimester I posted about the Spa Baby/Tummy Tub. It was a splurge for us at $50. Surely there are less expensive options and for a budgetzilla like me I was going on faith that somehow, this infant tub was different.

Well, lo and is! Here's Daddy Divasaur giving Libby her first bath today at two weeks old. She's fussing a bit in the first clip because we had just removed a dirty diaper (she doesn't like dirty diapers), but you'll notice how quickly she settles down. And afterwards, she was calm and relaxed and took a nice, long nap. Yay for this "funny bucket" that looks like we're making "baby soup." I definitely recommend this product...especially now that I have used it myself. Seems so much nicer than a wet baby flailing about in one of those reclined, shallow baby bath tubs that you have to use a wet washcloth on baby's tummy to try to keep him or her warm!


  1. Okay, I LOL'd at the "baby soup" comment. Mr. Divasaur was so cute interacting w/Libby in these clips. Also, Spa Baby should pay him for all the great advertising he did!

  2. Hi, dropped in from SITS.

    Mine are past the baby stage now, but I remember it well.

  3. We have a similar tub by Prince Lionhart but ours was £18; I can't believe they are charging $50 in the US!

    We love ours, too!

  4. That is the cutest picture. When we have a baby I would have to have one of those tubs!

  5. I've seen those bucket things at Babies R Us-- the last time I saw it was going for $25. Libby looks adorable in it :)

    For what it's worth, Brooke has always loved her whale tub and we've never had to use a washcloth over her belly to keep her warm! She just LOVES taking a bath!

  6. So is it hard for him with bigger hands to wash her? Do you think it'll be harder once she gets bigger?

    I hope not because it looks GREAT!!!
