What they say: 

“The multi award-winning Shnuggle bath is designed to grow with baby and has been carefully crafted to be a safe and secure place to bath baby, providing a more comfortable and enjoyable bath time. 

“For the first few weeks, place a hand behind the head for additional support. After which, the back is at the perfect recline angle and the bum bump holds them securely, leaving you with both hands free to wash and play with your baby.

“As baby starts to sit forwards, the Bum Bump makes them feel secure while giving them a feeling of independence.”

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I'd recommend the Shnuggle bath to other mums because it was so much easier to bathe my little girl. It is very light to use and carry around even with water in. It's a lovely design and comfortable. The bath supported my little girl well. It is also not a huge baby bath so it can easily be transported to other places. My partner said it is good as my little girl can now enjoy a bath whilst she is at her nanny's house.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The Shnuggle bath makes life easier as a mum as it is very light even with water in. My little girl was supported and she enjoyed her experience in this bath. My little girl even giggled for the first time in it! I bathe my little girl in the lounge and her old bath was so hard to carry and so heavy but this one was perfect.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose the Shnuggle bath above all others because it supports the baby well and provides comfort. The bath is very light and can be carried anywhere and be taken places like on holiday for instance. It is a very good design and myself is very happy with it and so was my daughter! There is no other baby baths like this on the market.

What changes would you make to this product?

The only thing I would change about the Shnuggle bath is to have a travel bag that it goes into so it can be transported to places or even have a stand so it doesn't need to be on the floor. There are so many possibilities but this is still a very good baby bath that nothing really needs changing. My little girl was very happy.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would definitely recommend this product to fellow mums and friends. I loved the stylishness of the bath; it looks good stored in my bathroom. Practically, it was easy to maneouver and as it's a bowl (as opposed to a traditional bath with plug) I felt secure in moving the bath safe in the knowledge water wasn't going to spill anywhere. It is made out of sturdy plastic so you can definitely feel the quality. I liked the addition of the foam headrest although I think it would be better if it was larger and extended to the sides further as my baby likes the lean to one side rather than straight back. I loved how deep the bath is as my baby likes to be submerged to the shoulders. It’s easy to empty afterward and easy to wipe down.

How did this product make your life easier?     

My baby enjoys bath times more in this bath which makes my life easier as a mum as there are less tears! He likes the depth and due to the ridge in the bottom is better able to stay in a seated position. Due to the depth and shape of the bath, it uses less water than my previous one and is more economical. Due to the size, it is easy to store making the house less cluttered.

Would you choose this product to win?

I liked this product very much; the quality, ease of use and stylishness of the bath really make the bath stand out as a must-have in the bathroom. I particularly likes the shape and depth of this product which made bath times more fun for my baby and more economical in water useage.

What changes would you make to this product?

One thing that I would change about this product is to make the foam headrest larger. At the moment, there is a small section at the back however I would change this so that the foam extends round the sides. My baby has a tendency to lean to one side so it would be more comfortable for him to have foam to lean on.

The Shnuggle bath is a well-designed product that allows a parent to bath their baby without having to worry about the child slipping or trying to grow an extra pair of arms. I loved the fact that my young son was well supported with the upright for his back and the bump to keep his bottom in place and had both hands free to wash him. Its design means that the bath does not need a lot of water, meaning it is not too heavy to move around and the design sits under the taps reducing waste.

How did this product make your life easier?     

As my husband often returns from work late at night, I have found this product to be a significant help with my bedtime routine. Before I had this product, I would not consider bathing my squirming boy, as I was too scared that I wouldn't be able to hold him safely. Now I am confident to include a bath in the routine every night. The design allows me to know my son is secure and that I am able to given him a good wash including his hair.

The Shnuggle bath addresses a very real problem for many parents. It allows one person to bath a baby without the awkward juggling act of trying to support the child and give them a good wash. The product has been very well thought out to make bathing an infant easy. From a small capacity so it does not get weighed down with water, to the non slip upright so the younger babies remain in place. Unlike bath thermometers and other gadgets, this product fills a need - not creates one.

What changes would you make to this product?

This is a well designed product, there is nothing I can think of to improve it. I would however say that it took my son a few uses to become familiar with the position he sits in. Also I find washing his hair awkward as its difficult to get him to lean forward (so head not against back support) and tip his head back so shampoo doesn't get in his eyes. Not sure there is a way to solve these, but the advantages significantly out weight these 2 niggles.

It takes seconds to fill up and get to the right temperature. It's also environmentally friendly as you use so much less water than having your baby in the bath. My little boy LOVES it and feels safe and secure within it. He can see so much sat upright and we can now put bath toys in with him and he can play with them. It is lightweight and very quick and easy to clean out.

How did this product make your life easier?     

It is so easy to use! I often have to wash my baby alone as my husband works shifts and isn't always at home - the Shnuggle bath makes life so much easier!I feel so confident bathing him in this - it has made our bath times a lot quicker, which can help when they are tiring and getting grouchy as it's nearing bedtime. It is also quite high which is great as I've found that I'm not bending as much as I was previously.

Would you choose this product to win?

Yes, yes, yes!!!! It really is brilliant and has saved so much time and water. It is excellent value for money and I would not even think twice about paying for this - I would recommend it to all mums. I feel so confident bathing my son, especially when alone. I have changed his frequency of baths from two/three times a week to every night as he loves it so much and I'm so much happier using it.

What changes would you make to this product?

Genuinely nothing. Shnuggle have thought of everything with regards to its design and usability.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

Me and my baby love the Shnuggle bath! I started to test when my baby was almost 4 months old. I will definitely tell my friends about this and pass it on to a new mum later on! I love how it looks - like a Victorian slipper bath! Because of its design it is quite small and compact, so doesn't take up space. It fills up quickly and doesn't slip on the bottom of my full size bath; where I placed it because it has rubber feet. Baby initially slipped around a little but soon got comfortable.

How did this product make your life easier?     

It makes bath time fun and easy! It fills up so quickly and I now place it on the floor as it's not too heavy when filled. I don't need to support baby as much. He sits comfortably and steadies himself by holding on to the bump! Bath times are less stressful now and there really is no comparison to the generic bath I have been using. I can now play with my baby and wash him with both hands and he is loving sitting up and playing with his toys.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would change the inside of the bath! When I initially placed baby in the bath he was wary for a bit so kept his foot behind the seat hump to keep himself upright and almost arched! Then he would slip sideways quite a lot. I think it could do with an anti-slip material at the bottom where the seat is and maybe some handles on the side that he could hold on to. I would also use a thicker padded foam for the backrest as it is a bit thin. He would feel more secure and I would be less stressed.

Product Information

There is a guide within the bath to show the amount of water to be added.

The bath can be used in a sink, bath or on the floor.

A stand is available at extra cost as an accessory which is tall enough for parents to bathe baby comfortably.
