There is a lot of equipment to buy for the baby's arrival. One of the most basic baby equipment is a baby bathtub, so the little one can have a good and safe bathing experience. There are many different types of baby baths. Some can be placed on a bath stand so that you have a good body position while baby is being bathed. Some can be folded so they can be stored away completely when not in use. Among other things, a baby bath should be made of a firm material so that it doesn't become too unstable when water gets in. At the same time, it should have rounded edges so that baby doesn't have the chance to scratch his body. It can also be an advantage to find a baby bath with a bottom plug, as it will then be much easier to empty again and you also ensure that water does not run out all over the place.
