I'm having a girl and wanted to know what bathtub is really good, but is a decent price that I can put in my registry?

Honestly I think Baby baths suck! You can't use them very long at all. Next time I'm just getting one of those things that goees directly in the bathtub

Just the whale one from walmart. Simple. You don't really use it too terribly long. And the little sling thing was the best.

We got a fancy one with a shower head attachment. He loved the feel of it on him. But we didn't use it for more than 3 months. And it broke. This time we are going for simple

I just lay a towel in the bottom of the tub so baby doesn't slide around and just fill water in the regular tub. Well up to maybe her shoulders laying on her back. I get a wash cloth wet and lay on her belly to keep her warm. Ta-da! hehe

The cheapest one possible. Like everyone said they're kinda worthless. I really like just the sling kind u put in the big tub, you can get it for like 6 bucks at walmart.

My husband and I had no clue what kind of baby bathtub to get, as this was our first child. All we really cared about was finding a safe one, because we've heard of tubs that slide around and are less safe than others, and that it didn't cost us a million bucks. We finally found this website online and we've loved it. We've purchased a few as gifts for our friends who have just had kids.

We used to have a bathtub that was collapsible but water leaked from it after using for a a month or two. Then we switched to a summer infant one that has the blue step stool. Love it!

Here is a great tub for babies, although I also recommend getting in the big tub with them, as skin on skin contact is what they love the most!
BabyGearLab also has lots of other great Baby Shower Gift ideas.

A fisher-price precious planet whale of a tub or a The First Years Sure Comfort Newborn to Toddler Tub are good choices. They are considered the best baby bathtubs. I have the fisher-price. And it
