Baby Bath Tubs: Product Guide and Review of Styles, Features and Safety
by Editors of TheCradle.com
Our AssessmentThis baby-tub product guide describes the various styles and features of bathtubs for infants and discusses safety issues. Favorite picks are then listed in each category, which includes infant bath seats, basic tubs, contoured tubs, wash pods, inflatable tubs and bath pads. However, this article is more valuable as a roundup of the various types of bathtubs. Testing methodology, if any, isn't noted, so we're unsure why the top picks are included over others.

Our AssessmentParents and caregivers can rate products and offer comments, although only about a half-dozen baby tubs are reviewed here. In order to see how many reviews there are for a given product, it's necessary to click through to the actual product page, which can be time consuming. There are hundreds of reviews for the few baby tubs listed, however, so it is worthwhile to search for reviews here. The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe Newborn-to-Toddler Tub with Sling receives an average rating of four stars out of five, based on over 950 consumer reviews.

Baby Bathtub Review
by Editors of BobbysBest.com
Our AssessmentThis basic review recommends the Primo EuroBath, describing it in detail, although there's no indication that it was compared with other baby tubs. Editors praise this baby tub for its depth, noting that other baby tubs are too shallow. This is a problem, because, the reviewer notes, "If you are giving your baby a bath in the middle of winter and they are only sitting in an inch of water, he/she will get cold quickly and it won't help getting them used to liking the bath."

Puj Baby Bath Tub
by Robin Elise Weiss
Our AssessmentRobin Elise Weiss, About.com's guide to pregnancy and birth, discusses the pros and cons of this baby tub, giving it a five-star rating. Weiss likes the fact that the Puj Tub fits in most sinks, is easy to drain and stores flat. However, price is a drawback, she says.

WashPod by Prince Lionheart
by Robin Elise Weiss
Our AssessmentAbout.com's guide to pregnancy and birth, Robin Elise Weiss, reviews the WashPod by Prince Lionheart, which is designed to hold a baby upright instead of at an incline. Weiss is mostly unimpressed, giving it only 2.5 stars out of five because it doesn't fit in a sink and could pose a safety hazard for toddlers and older children.

My Baby's Bathtub is Primo Stuff
by "Missy W."
Our Assessment"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.

Baby Bath Tub
by Contributors to Epinions.com
Our AssessmentConsumers post reviews of products that they've tried, although most baby tubs available here have only a few reviews. The Fisher Price 2-in-1 Stay Warm Bath Tub has accumulated over 60 reviews, giving it an average rating of four stars out of five, and the Kel Gar Snug Tub earns a similar average rating. Many models haven't received any reviews at all, however, and this site is difficult to navigate. In order to read the reviews, it's necessary to scroll through dozens of pages to find products that have been reviewed.

Product Reviews -- Baby Bath
by Contributors to BabyWorld.co.uk
Our AssessmentThis British parenting website allows consumers to rate and review products. While their rating system is solid, allowing consumers to provide a rating for ease of use, value for the money, overall quality and overall score, there are few reviews available and only a dozen products are reviewed, most of which aren't available in the United States. About 20 consumers rate the Tummy Tub, giving it an average rating of 4.5 stars out of five. Most parents say the tub is easy to use, but the majority is not happy with the price. Several note that the Tummy Tub helped soothe their colicky babies.
