One of my favorite and least favorite parts of the day is bath time. As a mom this part of the day can get really hectic and there are times when I think, “how do people keep their kids clean?” That might be a bit dramatic, but I know other moms can relate. This dislike of bath time started when Addison was little. I loved that she loved the water. and there are few things cuter than a freshly bathed baby in footie pajamas, but the whole process of getting her in and out of the bath seemed to overshadow the fun parts. I disliked it that much more because it is one of those things that has to happen pretty much every evening. But mostly, I disliked it because I could never find a bath seat that actually worked, or one that seemed comfortable for her to sit in. So when Ellie came along, I was stuck in the same bath loathing rut. That’s a thing right?
When I was introduced to the new My Bath Seat by Summer Infant, I was a bit skeptical of how useful it would be, but since Ellie was getting too large for a sink bath I thought I should at least give it a try. As you can see by these adorable photos the seat was a big hit with my little girl. Right away I knew there were things I really like about this seat, the first being that after installing it in our tub it was so sturdy. Once I tightened and locked the sides in place it is really hard to move. This is exactly what I wanted to see and in a seat that I would be putting my little girl in. Second, I like that the actual seat part was big enough for her to grow into. As Ellie gets older I know she will become more stable sitting up on her own in the tub, but the last thing I would want is her falling back hitting her head, so I can definitely see myself using this for a while. Finally, taking it in and out of the tub if I need to is also really easy and the compact size makes it easy to tuck away in a closet when you don’t want it out in the bathroom.
Like most moms, I’m a huge fan of any products that make daily tasks much easier and more manageable and this bath seat definitely checks both of those boxes. I am slowly coming around to bath time each night and while it may never be my favorite time of day, but I have to say it is growing on me. Finally, don’t forget, to ALWAYS keep baby within an adult’s reach when using this seat.
