Mommy's Lil Helper: Munchkin Bathtub

Mommy's Lil Helper: Munchkin Bathtub

Since I didn't know which bathtub was best for my baby, I was delighted when I received this Munchkin ($10) one at my baby shower.

Compared to the hard, plastic tubs which got slippery, the soft inflatable sides of the Munchkin allowed my daughter to sit up on her own during her bath.

It's convenient because you simply fill up this tub inside your own. And, it has a heat sensitive disc that turns white and reads, "hot" if the water could scold your lil one's buns. In addition to being a smart duck, the Munchkin is chatty — quacking whenever his bill is squeezed. This makes bath time loads of fun for lucky munchkins.

"cute, but still big enough for kids to drown" Well that goes for any bathing device. A child should NEVER be in it unattended at that age.

My monkey man loved his ducky tub, I was so sad when he out grew it at 15 months.

Wow, this is adorable, and soft too. Actually, a child can drown in 1 inch of water so it is possible for them to drown anywhere. That is why you never leave a child unattended in water. I don't think the purpose of this bath was for a parent to leave them unattended. Probably just to make bath more fun and safe as far as burns and not slipping and banging their little heads on the hard tub.

You don't have to inflate it every time. It comes with a suction sticker so you can hang it from your shower or wherever. I personally just placed it at the end of our bathtub every night. And it initially only takes about 1 minute to blow it up. It is great for travel, too though I usually stick with the sink on vacations.

that is such a cute idea...I don't know how it would work for a newborn(like my daughter) but I think older babies would love it.

Does it come with a pump or anything? The thought of having to inflate it by mouth every single time we took a bath makes me lightheaded. We did sink baths exclusively until they were able to sit well on their own, MUCH easier on my back and knees.

Our in-laws bought this for when they watched our son (we had an in sink bath), and he loved it so much we wound up buying one for ourselves!
