Leachco Safer Bather

Baby bath pad for newborns

Pros
  • Soft, comfortable cushion
  • Hanger for easy drying and storage
  • Contoured shape
  • Elevated headrest
  • Available in several decorative designs
Cons
  • Only recommended up to 9 months
  • May develop mildew

The Leachco Safer Bather is favored by many reviewers for its convenience and safety features. This baby pad resembles a big pillow, with a contoured shape to cradle a baby comfortably. The headrest is elevated to prevent water from getting into the baby's ears. The soft material also provides a slip-resistant surface so parents can use both hands to bathe their baby. It also includes a sturdy hook for hanging this bath pad to dry. On the downside, some reviewers say the Safer Bather tends to accumulate mildew after several uses. Other reviewers note that this bath pad can be placed in the dryer to prevent mildew, and some say that hanging it up immediately after use will prevent mildew buildup. Although this baby bath pad can't be used as long as a standard baby bathtub, reviewers don't seem to mind. If you prefer a tub that can be used from newborn to toddler, try the Primo EuroBath (*Est. $24) or The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe Newborn-to-Toddler Tub with Sling (*Est. $22), both of which can accommodate toddlers, as well as infants.

The Leachco Safer Bather is a recommended baby bath pad on TheCradle.com, although this review discusses general features and safety concerns and does not provide a detailed analysis of each specific recommendation. The best detailed reviews are found in consumer ratings on Amazon.com, and a few consumers comment on the Leachco Safer Bather on Viewpoints.com.
