Tub Time Lifesaver

When I saw this idea on Pinterest, I thought it was pure BRILLIANCE.

We tried it out tonight and it worked great!

laundry basket in the tub! genius!Help your baby transition from a baby tub to the big tub by putting them in a laundry basket.

This is awesome for so many different reasons.

For starters, it keeps your little tyke from smashing his noggin’ on the side of a hard tub.

It prevents slipping.

The sides of the basket are easier for baby to grip than the sides of a tub.

It keeps your baby in one place.

Once again, Pinterest, you have made me feel better about the 2 hours I spent pinning things the other night in order to find this fabulous idea.

Time well spent, indeed. :-)

P.S. Β I may or may not have used a touch-up tool on PicMonkey so that the actual condition of my bathroom grout was not revealed. Β Ha!

Happy Laundry Basket in the Tub-ing!

  1. I did this when my 9 yr old was a little guy – before Pinterest! I forgot where I saw it from . It worked great!

  2. After the bath, when all the toys are in it, the basket acts as a strainer when you rinse off the toys! Shake them off and let the basket tilt in the tub until dry. It makes me wish my 12 yr. old was a toddler again!

  3. I did this for my girls (who are now 33 & 30) . It was in a parent magazine, long before the internet. I was so helpful for everyone.

  4. Have you noticed any irritation from the bubbles? My daughter would get problems from bubbles so I am hesitant to use them with my son, but he loves them!

    • Anna, that was actually the very first time we used bubbles with the Happy Baby! :-) He seemed okay! I used to get irritated by them when I was younger and had to stop taking bubble baths like your daughter. I guess every child is different…?? Have fun!

  5. When my firstborn got too big/slippery to hold as we showered, I put her baby bathtub in the back of the bathtub/shower. It would fill slowly as I showered. She had water to play in and I could bathe her easily!

The Fairy would love to hear from YOU! :-) Seriously, it's my favorite. Leave a comment!
