Bathtub for infants and toddlers

< read all 5 reviews

Bath time is a "splash" around our house!

The Primo Eurobath for infants and toddlers is an ingenious design and one of my favorite items we bought for our son. 

We didn't have a tub when we gave him his first full immersion bath, so we used the kitchen sink, something a lot of parents do!  Although it was cute and all, it was really hard!  My husband held him while I washed him and he wasn't too happy about it. This bothered me because I really wanted to start a bedtime routine of a bath every night to unwind him from the day and this just would not do!  I tried taking him in the tub with me once, which was fun, but still not the proper solution.  I turned to a mom's message board I'm active on and asked around - the resounding answer was the Primo Eurobath...and they were not kidding!

The Eurobath design is wonderful.  For most new parents, myself included, it is terrifying to bathe your newborn.  They are small and squirmy and when they're wet, well, it's nerve-wracking!  The Eurotub "cradles" the baby - there are little supports on either side for baby's arms, a reclined position for the younger baby, and what I like to call the "butt stop" - a molded piece in the center that stops baby from slipping beneath  the water.  This way I had both hands free to wash my son - before, I had to somehow bathe him with one hand and it's not as easy as it sounds!   Suddenly, he LOVED bath time!  When he heard the water turn on, his legs and arms started flailing in anticipation and he would screech with delight!  We did incorporate it into a nightly routine and I contribute that to him being a wonderful sleeper - from two months until now, seven months.

The tub can be used for the older child as well.  Instead of using the reclined side, simply turn the tub around and use the side for a baby or toddler who can sit up on their own.  The "butt stop" is still there, giving them something to hang on to and again, something to keep them from slipping beneath the water. 

The downside that I hear most often about the Eurobath is that it is huge.  Yes, it's a big tub, but if you think of the fact that you will be using it for at least 2 years, it makes sense and it's a lot safer than bathing your toddler in the adult tub.  I don't have a ton of space, but I keep it inside of my bathtub and just take it out when I need to shower - it's never been a hassle.

I recommend this tub to any parent - it is a fabulous design and a very affordable price.  There are no "bells and whistles" that some tubs have (a spa effect, a "shower", or other such nonsense) but it is the best tub I have seen yet!

Wow. Thanks for this. My 6-month old enjoys her Fisher Price tub with the hammock like seat, but I can see it won't do for long. She prefers to sit up for her back now but I don't have anything to really protect her other than my hand. It's nice to know the Eurobath will fit in a tub since that is where we keep her current one. Thanks for the info!

Never leave the baby unattended in the water. Be sure that the bath water is not too cold, or too hot.

My son is three now, but we used this bathtub for him until he was about 1 1/2 and it was a great product. It's basically all one piece so it doesn't require any assembly or generate worries about collapse. When the baby is little you lie him down in one spot--when he gets bigger you sit him up in the larger space. It's totally easy to use--a little bulky to move, but no big deal even for me, and I'm just short of 5 feet. Sometimes we'd use an inflatable pillow under his head, but you don't …

About this topic

Wiki

The Eurobath combines safety, style and functionality, to be used for the first weeks of a baby's life up to age two. The unique design allows for different bathing positions as a child grows. The bath features a distinct anatomical shape which keeps baby in the ideal bathing position and prevents baby from slipping under the water. The EuroBath is larger than most baby baths, measuring approximately 9 inches deep in the middle, just less than 3 feet from end to end, and approximately 21 inches wide. It has a built-in drain and two areas for soap, shampoo & a sponge. Available in white or mint green.
