Tested by mum Stefania Fleming for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I absolutely love this product, so much so that we have ditched our old bath support and now use this for every bath time. I feel as though my baby is very supported in the bath support and not slumped down into a hammock like seat like our previous one. I would definitely recommend it to other mums and think it is well worth the price.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I like how this product is slightly raised making me feel closer to my baby as our bath is quite deep. I also like the materials that have been used and the ventilation holes, our previous support was made of mesh and was hard to clean. The fill line is clearly marked and easy to see.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I wouldn't change anything about this product.

Tested by mum Rachel Robinson-Tingle for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I would recommend the angelcare bath support to a friend because I have found this to be one of the best bath supports I have used. I have found its bigger then others on the market. Easy to place into the bath and then place baby onto it. I love the soft touch support as it has small holes in it so baby has water all around him, at all times making bathing enjoyable.Well build.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Very easy to use, no need to make sure that the suckers are stuck to the base of a bath, as has a rubber support. you simply just place the support in and away you go. Supports baby really well. Good idea to have the small holes in allowing the water to pass through. Cleans easily after use.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I would say the support that goes between baby legs should be made slightly bigger. I found that baby liked to kick his legs resulting in him slightly sliding down into the bath. But overall very happy with the bath support.

Tested by mum Ashleigh Kirkpatrick for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

The bath support is incredibly well made. My daughter found it a lot more comfortable to lie on due to the mesh material rather than other supports which are made of hard plastic. The rubber grip around the bottom means it does not move around in the bath and it is neat enough that a sibling can fit in the bath at the same time!

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

My husband works shifts so at times bath time is left solely to me. This support means I can bath both chiller at the same time and in a safe way. Newborns are so slippery when wet but this gave me full confidence when bathing my daughter.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Perhaps little suction cups on the bottom to give extra stability.

Tested by mum Becky Carr for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This product is ideal for Mums wanting to bath their babies in the big bath. I found it useful being able to bath my 5 month old and 2 year old at the same time. My 5 month old is a very big baby and I was not expecting him to fit in this bath support very well, however it was easily big enough for him and he looks extremely comfortable. The plastic feels soft and smooth and is not cold to the touch. It is designed so that the water drains away from it completely. It even has a loop so that you can hang it up out of the way. I will be highly recommending this product to other mums. I have used it every night since it has arrived, my baby loves it - it supports him in a very good position for hair washing without having to tilt him back further, and it still allows him to splash his feet in the water.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Before this product arrived, I would get an aching back during every bath time trying to support my baby in the bath and wash him with one had. This removes the problem completely and has made bath time 100% more enjoyable.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

There is nothing I would change. It is expensive for a bath support, but it very well designed. The quality and ease of use make this extremely good value for money.

2015 – Shortlisted for 'Best Bathtime Product' Award

Angelcare’s Soft-Touch Baby Bath Support allows mums and dads free hands for washing baby safely. The product is comfortable and the ‘hammock’ effect allows water through, which makes for easy cleaning. The angle is perfect for washing hair without getting soap in baby's eyes.

The non-slip base seems to work well but suction cups would give greater peace of mind, especially with an enthusiastic toddler  in the bath too! It’s also quite big, taking up a lot of space in the bath and does not collapse or fold, which makes storage complicated although it does come with a loop so that it can be hung up. A total plus about the size is that baby can sit in the support outside the bath – while you take siblings out of the bath or use the loo. It’s also nice because it allows babies to enjoy their bath – it’s fun as well as functional; the product is not just about getting in, getting clean and getting out.

It is expensive in comparison to other products on the market but it is brilliant and comes highly recommended.

2014 – Shortlisted for 'Best Bathtime Product' Award

Angelcare Soft-Touch Bath Support is strong and sturdy, and doesn’t slip around the bath. It requires no assembly, is easy to clean and dries quickly.

The product includes a ‘water line’, which tells you how full to make the bath, and also moulds to baby’s shape. It’s suitable for newborns but is quite bulky, taking up a lot of space in a bath and requires room for storage.

It’s a bit more expensive than other similar products but its convenience and quality make it worth the price.
