However, there are risks to be aware of. The waterfall of your shower can encourage you and your partner to get close — and we mean really close. Showers give you a great opportunity to test out standing positions that you might not be able to do when having sex on a bed or couch. Shower sex is also great for solo play. Make use of your alone time by discovering what feels good for you.
Keep your baby safe and comfortable at bath time
This bathtub grows with your child. Once your baby has better head control, the hammock can be removed. The tub is molded so that your infant can lie down comfortably on their back in shallow water, or sit up with support between his or her legs. The tub fits in both a sink and a bathtub, and can also be used in a standalone shower. Choose from a bold blue or a bright pink for your child. You'll be happy to know that the hammock is machine washable and it has mildew-resistant pads. The Angelcare Bath Support is perfectly sized for a newborn. It holds even the tiniest babies in the water without submerging them entirely. Constructed from a mildew resistant mesh material, newborns are supported in an inclined position by a safety post between their legs. Overall, this bathtub is a great pick for newborns.

In generations past, most babies got all their scrub downs in the kitchen sink. These days, plastic or foam tubs give parents a convenient spot to prop floppy newborns and keep more curious older babies contained. While bathtime can be adorable, it can also be tricky—a good tub can make the process a lot easier for parents. The kitchen sink is still an option, but a baby bathtub will help you safely support a newborn. While each baby bathtub has its own age range, your baby will begin sitting up on their own around the 6-month mark, and they can usually graduate to the big tub at this point. Some parents and caregivers continue to use basin tubs even after baby is sitting up. Many provide a non-slip surface in the big tub while still leaving plenty of room for bath toys , bubble bath , washcloths and all of the other things that come with bathtime. We asked thousands of real Babylist families about the baby products they love the most, then took the top baby tubs they shared with us and added our own research and insight.
