One item I have used daily since Archie was about 6 months old (old enough to sit up and not need his Angelcare Soft Touch Bath Support, which I reviewed here: http://becomingmamalucy.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/angelcare-soft-touch-bath-support-review.html) is the Munchkin White Hot™ Inflatable Safety Duck Bath.
I really love this product. It has made bath times a lot safer, well I feel it has for me and my baby. Archie has been pulling himself up to stand (and is now walking) for some time. Once he started doing that he wanted to try standing at bath time. Of course I discourage it because water, soap and bath = slippery baby and surfaces... but sometimes babies don't listen. :)
The Munchkin duck bath has meant I can wash him in a smaller, baby friendly bath environment. It is a smaller amount of water, the sides are supportive and the bottom is less slippery than a bath tub in a bathroom.
The inflatable sides also helped support him when he started to sit up. Meaning he would have a little support sitting if he needed it during the early stages of him sitting independently.
There is also a temperature sensitive dot on the bottom which tells you if the water is too hot.
It also saves on water as I don't have to fill up a whole bath tub for him and it has a plug in the bottom which you can drain the water from.
Another great aspect to this is that you can deflate and inflate as needed. We generally always keep it inflated at home (as we used it nightly) and then use the suction pad on it to hang it on the wall. But when we travel we deflate it and take it with us.
It has been so useful when staying places that only have a shower and when deflated it barely takes up any room in your luggage.
This is a great item to have for bath time and I continue to use it now, Archie is 13 months old. I would highly recommend it and it would also be great for holidays with babies and toddlers.
I did a quick search and it is currently on sale at Argos, at £9.99: Click Here
