We like

Great connection between the support and the bottom of the bathtub

It can be used in a sink and in a bathtub

Easy to clean and it does not hold water so it dries quickly

Safe for the baby as it does not allow sliding

We don’t like

Plenty of water to fill the bathtub and cover the baby’s body

Can be used only from 0+ to six months

 

How it works

When the baby is born three things are most important and more or less all the activities are organized around these things so parents often divide their days on feeding time, sleeping time and bathing time. Talking about the last one there are babies who like bathing and enjoy the water and some who scream out of it and does not like it all. No matter whether your baby belongs to the first or to the second category one thing is certain. The baby has to have a bath. A newborn must have 2-3 baths a week or if he or she likes water, bathing can be every day. Often parents are stressed about the first baths, whether it is the right temperature in the room, isn’t the water temperature too hot or too cold? where should you bathe the baby?

AngelCare has designed one answer to all these questions about bathing and designed a baby bath support especially for newborns and new parents and to give them an opportunity to enjoy in the bathing experience.

About the product

About the product

With this product bath time can become a piece of cake because there is no need to hold the baby with one hand and try to maneuver the bathing with the other hand or just wait for help by others in order to bath the baby; so now you can simply lay the baby on this bath support and both of your hands are free to bathe the baby without any worry that the baby will slip or slide.
This baby bath support is designed for newborns and can be used up to 6 months with a weight limit of the babies of 20 lbs. Its dimensions are 23x13.2x8.9 inches and weigh around 1.65 pounds. As bath support, it can be used directly in the bathtubs as well as single basin sinks that are larger than the product’s dimensions. The product comes in one piece and there is no need for assembly.
Design

Design

The bath support besides all the positive features looks super modern, too. It has a great and appealing design. The product comes in three different colors: pink, grey, and aqua. If you opt for a neutral baby product that you can choose the grey color. In all three different models of the support the base is white and made of plastic. In front, it features the brand name of Angelcare. The seat is with an ergonomic design that contributes to the comfort of the baby. It is designed to be used directly without the need of big fuss about bath preparation time or setting up. The cleaning is not time-consuming process as you can just shower it with water and because of the mesh material on the seat the water drains and the mesh dries out pretty quickly which again is very convenient, as you can use the support again and you do not have to wait for long period of drying.
Safety

Safety

AngelCare as a company that started with different types of baby monitors such as breathing, video and audio monitors and some accessories regarding them. So, after the success with these baby products, they have launched products that belong to the line of baby care and manufactured two products - baby support and baby booster for bath time. When placing the bath support in the bathtub or sink the bottom of the support connects and sticks firmly to the bottom of the sink or bathtub so you do not have to be afraid that the support will not stay on its place or it is going to move up and down the surface of the bathtub. It is sturdy and stable even when the babies are wriggling and moving all the time it will not slide or turn on one of the sides. The seat is basically a mesh made of silicone material and it features anti-slip base and there is an anti-slip guard so you can freely lay the baby on the seat without having to think all the time if the baby is going to slip down. There are no sharp edges that can cause harm to the baby but all the edges are perfectly rounded. What is also important is the silicone material does not keep water in itself and thus the mesh can be easily dried which on the other side prevents molding, that is extremely unhealthy for the baby. This product is hygienic and can be easily cleaned and dried for the next use.
Comfort

Comfort

The AngelCare bath support's base is made of plastic that is high-quality and it is extremely durable and sturdy. Since the upper part of the support that makes the seating for the baby is made of silicone this not only creates softness to touch for the gentle baby skin but it also enhances baby’s comfort because the seat responds to the shape of the baby’s body and molds around the back for baby’s greater comfort. The height i.e the recline seating of the baby’s position when seated is also comfortable for the baby and the baby can enjoy while having a bath because his or her upper part of the body is a little bit higher and provides great support for baby’s neck and head. When you want to move or carry the support to the bathroom you can do this by grabbing it from the sides where there are two handles that make the moving of the bath support easy. As it was said, this product can be used in a bathtub and a sink. When used in a bathtub you will need to put a larger amount of water quantity inside compared to the sink and there is an indicator that shows you the maximum level of water. When the support is used in a bathtub it can cause discomfort for the parents or caregivers who are bathing the baby as they will have to bend and on long-term, this can cause back pains. So, if you have a sink that has larger dimensions than the actual product it is a great option for a bathing place and for the comfort of your back.
Ease of use

Ease of use

This product is not bulky and because of its size, you do not need much space to store it. As mentioned it has a handle so you can easily lift it after being used and clean it with the shower or you can take it with you when going away for the weekend. At the top of the support, there is a loop that can be used for hanging the product on the bathroom wall on some of the hooks for towels or on any other convenient place for storage. It is a lightweight product so it will not be a problem for storing, hangout it up or moving it around. The bath support definitely eases the process of bathing especially for parents who have their first child and it gives them stress-free bathing time knowing that the baby is safe and secure on the bath seat. On the seat, there are small holes that help the bathing water to be rinsed quickly and this makes the maintenance of the mesh material easy and at the same time, it is hygienic because the water does not stay but it drains.
Longevity

Longevity

Although used for a limited time period due to weight restrictions this is a product that is used frequently because the bathing time is especially important for the first months so if there is one thing for sure that is - you are going to use this product definitely a lot. The materials that the product is made of, are durable and will make the product last for a very long time even after you stopped using it. It is a product that you can use it again for the next child or just borrow it for use in the extended families. However, it is important to mention that proper care, maintenance, and storage of the product extend its lifespan.
Versatility

Versatility

Although this product as said is primary to be used in a bathtub or sink, this seat can even be perfect when you decide to go on a holiday and to the beach and there are a lot of customers who have tried this, of course, taking care about the level of the water. For families who have more than one child, it is a great option because you can bathe both kids in the bathtub and the baby can enjoy in his/her seat support on one side while the other child is also seated. Moms like always are very creative when it comes to different baby products and their use, so some of the moms say that the product suits perfectly when you are alone with the baby and you need to go to the toilet so you just put the baby in the clean and dry baby bath support while using the toilet. Although some users claim it is a little bit bulky still it fits most of the sinks.
Some of the downfalls

Some of the downfalls

This product is liked and popular by so many parents because of its simple but clever design that really helps parents to bathe their newborn. One of the downfalls of the product is the amount of water that you have to fill in order the baby’s body to be covered or to reach the indicator for water level. This usually engages lots of water quantity that is not being used, so many parents who are eco-friendly do not like the concept. Another thing is that when the support is in the water often baby’s body is not covered with water (because you need lots for that) and baby can get cold or sometimes feel not secure so in this case, you can just cover the baby with a washcloth. And of course what we do not like is that this product can be used only for six months, which is a pity as it is a great product.
Price

Price

The product’s price is in the mid-range and some of the customers consider it pricey taking into account the limited period of use and that it is not a complete baby tub. However, the quality of the materials and the entire product are really worth the price as it eases the stress of parents in the first 6 months regarding the bath time and enhances the comfort of the baby, which is priceless. It can be purchased for a price that varies from 15 to 30 dollars depending on the offer and for some great deals you can always check Amazon.

Bottom line

The Angelcare bath support would be an ideal purchase for you if you have or will have a newborn as it is designed to be used for babies from 0+ and up to six months of age. The bathing time will no longer be stressful for you because all you have to do is just grab this baby support by the handles on both sides and place it directly in the bathtub or even better in a sink if you have a large one. Place the baby on the comfy seat that is made of mesh material and be sure that because of the silicone backrest the baby is not going to slide and due to the seat that molds according to the shape of the body the baby is going to be comfortable and enjoy in the bathing experience. The mesh of the seat does not hold water and dries very fast. The plastic and the mesh material are high-quality ones and this makes the product durable and sturdy. Although lots of parents claim that this product is not really budget friendly, mainly because of the limited period of use still the usefulness and the ease of use and cleaning are some of the things that everyone agrees upon and these make the bath support extremely popular among parents.
