Washing a newborn isn’t easy on moms’ backs. With one hand steadying your baby as you try to wash her with the other doesn’t make bathtime good clean fun for anybody. Prince Lionheart has come out with the washPOD, a tub designed to make bathtime a bit more relaxing for babies while being kind to your lower back (haven’t you torn enough muscles already just lifting that bulky diaper bag?)What I like about the washPOD is that it works on the floor inside of the tub–a plus right off the bat since you are not bending over as low as you would with your standard tub. Just fill the washPOD inside your bath, lift it out and wash your little one sitting upright. (It doesn’t need a lot of water to fill, so it’s not terribly heavy.) The high side walls protect your baby, banishing any worries that she won’t be secure while bathing. After your baby is clean and swaddled, you can use the washPOD’s handles to carry and dump the dirty bathwater into your tub or sink. Extra bonus: this tub is see-through, which gives you a closer look at getting to those hard-to-reach spots. The washPOD works best for ages 0-6 months.
In a Nutshell: Bathtime doesn’t have to be a back-breaking experience any longer, and your baby may feel like she’s back in the womb–even if just for a brief respite.
