I had seen in a lot of European forums and websites this baby's bath tub. It's called a Shantala bath and it is for newborns to 6, 12 or 18 months (dépending on the size of the bath). It's supposed to be reassure the baby because it's so "closed" and it feels like in the mommy's belly. Have you ever seen something like that in the States ? Do you know if it has another name here ?

Thank you

I'm actually writing from Spain and use a "Tummy Tub" (same idea) which is available in the States... my mum was amazed when she saw how my two LOs loved it and wanted to get one for my new niece and discovered that they are available.

We've really, really liked ours and both kids have always loved bathtime

I got a Tummy Tub for dd from New Zealand. It worked really well for us in the early months, but was a bit hard to use by myself when she didn't have good head control. Sometimes it was hard to reach down low to get her clean, and I was perplexed as to how to rinse soap off. But she liked it, so we used it until she was ready for a regular tub.

in what way are these baths different than buckets?
and being a nanny in 3 different european countries, i have never seen anything like a shantala bath.
they look as good as anything else, but a quick googling saw prices of $50+
for a bucket

While selecting the right bathtub to ensure it is a BPA free plastic and doesn’t have sharp edges to ensure baby stays safe. Adding to this, moms should always consider using natural and organic products to keep the skin smooth, nourished and hydrated. You can also use Babo botanicals shampoo and body wash range to use natural and 100% safe products.
