Expert tips:

  • Safety experts discourage the use of products like bath rings or seats. “If the child slips through, they can be trapped underneath, which is much more hazardous than falling into open water,” says Stephanie Cowle, health promotion coordinator at Parachute Canada, a national charitable organization dedicated to preventing injuries.
  • When you use your own bath for washing your baby, the Bath Kneeler is a must. It’s machine washable and has also 2 large mesh pockets for a total of 4 storage compartments.
