Bathing a newborn can be somewhat nerve wracking. They're so tiny, and cover them with water and soap, and it could be one slippery mess. With the Summer Infant Mother's Touch Deluxe Baby Bather, bath time is a little bit easier.
This great little bather is a mesh sling that has an adjustable back, enabling longer use of this product. I used this with my sweet pea up until she was able to sit on her own; about 5 months. The fabric is also removable, and machine washable. I love how you can give your new bundle of joy a wipe-down without having to fully submerge them in the water. With my experience in using this bather, baby is all comfy, so they will be less likely to wiggle around making it easier to soap up and rinse off.
This bather can be placed right in the tub or used in a kitchen sink, provided that its big enough. Mine was not. Darn, I was hoping to eliminate that whole bending over part of bath-time.
My one and only complaint about this bather, since I am shorter, putting the bather in tub was more hassle than it was worth, so I placed the bather on the bathroom floor, had a little basin full of water, and a wash cloth. There is nothing to catch the water when it goes through the mesh, so if this is what you plan to do, lay out a towel first.
Overall, I would definitely recommend the Summer Infant Mother's Touch Deluxe Baby Bather, it makes bath-time with a new baby a breeze!
