Summer Infant Deluxe Baby Bather, £16.99,

Sarah-Jane said: ‘You can adjust the head rest to make your baby comfy, but I think it will be better suited to Emily-Rose when she has better neck strength and can support herself more.’

Mothercare Foam Bath Support, £7.99,

Sarah-Jane said: ‘Bathing a newborn can be daunting as they wriggle about, but this moulded to my girl’s body and she loved it. She could play with her bath toys and stay secure.’

Acqua Bath Support, £22.50,

Sarah-Jane said: ‘This would be best for less active younger babies. I liked the nonslip surface and Emily-Rose fitted well into the support. I’m just not sure how long it’ll last as at four months she already looks big in it.’

Babies ‘R’ Us Blue Folding Bath Sling, £9.99,

Sarah-Jane said: ‘Great for travelling, but it is small. At just 11 weeks Emily-Rose almost covered it, even though it says it’s for babies up to 9kg. The plus side is that it folds away easily.’

Puj Tub, £39.99,

Sarah-Jane said: ‘If you bath your baby in the sink, this is the solution for you. It’s small, so a great option to pack into a bag when staying with friends too. It is expensive though.’

AngelCare Soft-Touch Bath Support, £22.99,

Sarah-Jane said: ‘This is great for everyday use. The drainage system is very clever as there is nowhere for water to collect and it was very easy to clean.’
