Bathing your baby is a heartwarming and fun experience for both child and parent. It offers you a chance to play, interact and communicate with your baby, while also providing your little one with the relaxing and sensory feeling of being in the water. However, bathing your little one can be a source of discomfort for some parents as bending over the bath daily can take its toll on your back and shoulders. To save yourself the pain, why not consider buying a baby bath stand?
What are the benefits of a baby bath stand?
It is important to ensure that baby is within arm's reach when you're bathing them. Especially newborns as they can't support themselves. A bath stand will bring your child's tub to a more comfortable height so you can bathe them while you're in an upright position. You then won't need to kneel or hunch over to be able to reach your baby. You will be in a better position to keep them safe in the bath and to give them a good scrub and sponging down.
A stand for a baby bath will also give you more flexibility at bathtime, as the stand can be easily moved around your home. Your baby can then be bathed in the room that is most convenient to you, so you could set it up in the bathroom, the bedroom or even the living room - it's entirely up to you. This also means that you can easily take the stand with you when you need to travel or visit family.
If a bath with a stand sounds like something you need to introduce to your baby’s bath time, take a look at our top picks for the best baby bath stands.

Review: "Perfect for my little one. It doesn’t ever smell, and it’s super soft. I would 100% recommend, rather than a normal sponge from boots or the supermarket, which end up breaking up or becoming mouldy. Well worth the money!"
We love the super cute panda design of this hooded bath towel. It is made from bamboo cotton so it will feel soft against your baby's delicate skin. The absorbent material will also ensure they are dry in no time.
Review: "Absolutely LOVE this towel. I was a bit apprehensive about buying a towel for my baby online as I couldn’t feel how soft it was. Honestly, I wouldn’t get any other towels for him now!! My baby is a large baby - he’s on the top line of the percentile. Regular towels don’t go around him nicely, but I have no worries about this one. It goes around him with loads of extra room!!"
