    inflatable bath

    While I was searcing for newborn baby bath, I found out there was inflatable bath which seems easy to store and soft. So Still hesitating whether to buy this or normal plactic bathtub. Has anyone used inflatable bath not for travelling but for bathing at home?

    Yes, I bought it for my daughter when she was born. It was alright except that it was harder to clean because of the hidden edges. If you plan to use it permanently at home,I suggest you get the normal plastic one which you can use for a long time.

    I was thinking the same. I know our inflatable/rubber toys get covered with mildew fairly quickly.

    For both our kids, for the first 3 months, we were using an inflatable tub from Mothercare. I just felt 'safer' using an inflatable one because I wouldn't have to worry about the baby's head banging against anything hard, plus it was softer on our arms, too.

    As for cleaning, you just have to make sure that you clean it well and wipe it dry after each use.

    My mother used an inflateable bath for my brother and I when we were born (over 34 years ago!) didn't have as many hidden edges and was a bit more basic. But my mum said they it was very easy to use and clean. I've been looking for something like this for my baby as I don't like the idea of a hard plastic bath or basin.
