The Primo EuroBath is a favorite baby tub among reviewers who appreciate its simple, no-fuss design. This baby tub is one of the largest available, at 36 inches long and 10 inches deep, so it accommodates older and larger babies. The drawback is that it's too large to fit in a kitchen sink; rather, most parents use it on a countertop or inside a full-size adult tub. The EuroBaby bathtub's contoured bottom makes it easy to hold a baby or toddler in an ideal bathing position, while the non-slip surface prevents infants from sliding about. This baby tub also features a built-in drain, making it easy to empty after use. The EuroBath is lightweight and easy to clean. Unlike some baby tubs, the EuroBath lacks the convenience of a pad or hammock, which provides additional comfort and security for a newborn. If this feature is important, you might want to consider The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe Newborn-to-Toddler Tub with Sling (*Est. $22), which has a removable hammock.

"Missy W.," a mother and blogger, recommends the Primo EuroBath, based on her personal experience with the product. However, she only compares the EuroBath with one other baby tub, which she fails to identify. She loves the fact that the EuroBath is constructed of plastic that doesn't contain bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical that has been the source of much controversy over possible health concerns. In addition, she notes that the plug doesn't function well.
