What they say:

“The Soft Touch Bath Support provides optimal comfort and safety for your baby whilst bathing. Its unique design combines safe, sturdy sides and an angled area made from special soft material for your baby. The soft TPE material does not only mould comfortably around your baby, but also takes up the bath water's temperature very quickly, which makes your baby feel warm and safe. The Angelcare Soft-Touch Bath Support has a water level indicator for optimal safety in the bath.”

Would you recommend the Angelcare Soft-Touch Baby Bath Support to other mums?    

I would definitely recommend this baby bath support to a friend/fellow mum. It is absolutely brilliant and my little boy adores his! He outgrew his normal baby bath quite quickly as he is long and chunky but this bath support has solved all of our problems. It means he can go in the big bath now and gets to kick his legs (which is his favourite thing to do). I have noticed how much more chilled out he is at bath-time, knowing he is totally secure in this support and isn't going to bang his head every time he kicks.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The Angelcare Soft-Touch Baby Bath Support makes my life so much easier as a mum. It means I have both hands free to wash and play with my baby, which makes bath-time so much more relaxed and fun. It also has saved me a lot of back and arm ache, as my baby boy weighs 15lbs, it's a struggle to have to hold him constantly whilst bathing him, this support means I don't have to any more, phew!

Would you choose this product to win?

My baby is so relaxed in it and it has made bath-time a breeze rather than the huge stress it used to be. I would recommend it for anyone with a big/long baby too, as even though my baby is long and chunky, he's still only 13 weeks old and can't support his own head yet, this allows for that and means he is totally safe and comfortable too.

What changes would you make to this product?

I wouldn't actually change a thing about this bath support. It fits all of our needs perfectly and has taken the stress out of bath-time, which hopefully means my baby will enjoy the water rather than dread it, as we want to take him swimming soon. Absolutely brilliant product, I have bought one for my sister in law who has just had a baby too.

Tested by mum Jennifer Orr for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend the Angelcare Soft-Touch Baby Bath Support to other mums?    

Yes, it made the transition from our baby bath to this very easy. George loves it, he can see around him, his head is supported, it is lightweight and easy to clean. The price is a bit steep, but I would still buy it. I would consider buying this from birth as I loved using it that much. Hopefully other colours are available.

How did this product make your life easier?     

This support really has improved our experience of bath time. George can now kick around time, can see around him and interacts with me and his daddy. It generally has made our life so much easier. It also helps keeping his head out of the water which used to really upset him and make him cry. I love it!

Would you choose this product to win?

I think this item is ground-breaking in baby bath time. It's lightweight, spacing saving, easy to clean, and looks pretty cool. It encourages my babies development as it encourages him to kick and move and interact with me and his daddy. 

What changes would you make to this product?

I think the packaging that comes with the bath support should be more informative. A few stickers doesn't really boast about the benefits of using this support. They were also really difficult to get off! Maybe also a wee hook to hang my sponge off would be handy and useful. Or could be used to hang the support up out of the way.

Tested by mum Hollie Quilter for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend the Angelcare Soft-Touch Baby Bath Support to other mums?    

I would recommend the bath support to a friend, it supported my baby so I didn't have to hold behinde her head, it’s easy to clean and lightweight, and it also had a bit on the top to hang it up out of the reach of my older children.

How did this product make your life easier?     

It was definitely more handy to have it to save my right arm aching from supporting my baby’s head in the main bath. 

What changes would you make to this product?

There was only one slight thing I noticed; occasionally it would slide slightly during baby’s bath not much but enough that I was aware of it a few times even though I didn't let go of the support, so I would suggest some kind of suction perhaps for underneath to stop it sliding that's the only thing I could suggest to improve it.

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.
