For a fun, safe, and comfortable bathtime experience for baby and parent, investing in a baby bath seat can really help.

These clever little inventions are designed to make bathing a baby easier, keeping baby safe and secure while you get them squeaky clean - leaving them time and space for the important job of playing with bath toys and splashing you from head to foot. 

The NHS recommends using baby bath seats as they can help prevent accidents, giving you more grip and less chance of slipping - we all know just how slippery a baby in the bath can be. A baby bath seat can take the stress out of bathtime - which can sometimes be daunting - making it fun for you and your baby. 

What is a baby bath seat?

Usually made of plastic, baby bath seats are waterproof seats that can be put in the bath for your child to securely sit in. They give the baby support and hold them in safely while you to wash them, anxiety-free. 

They're lightweight, easy to put in and out of a bath, and are easy to clean. Baby bath seats are ideal for babies that can sit up, so from about six months old, until around the time they start to walk. Strong suction cups are ideal to secure the seat in place which helps with fidgety toddlers.
