Remember the first time you ever bathed your newborn baby? Those tender moments together—lathering them up, rinsing, and the sweetest little smiles. Then quickly getting them dried off, applying lotion, and putting on pajamas for bed! It seems like those days go by too fast, and before you know it, you’re bathing a toddler. Then bath time transitions from not only getting clean and signaling bedtime to another time your little one wants to be entertained through play!
My 18-month-old son is currently in a stage where he doesn’t always seem thrilled about hopping in the bathtub when it is the time! We have tried to make it fun and something he will look forward to daily. I found various toddler bath products that have helped aid in this. He also loves a good bubble bath with some music! I’m sharing all my favorites to make bath time with a toddler less hassle and more fun.
Toddler Bath Products
Once you have all these fun toys to play with during your toddler’s bath time, you will need a place to store them! These options can hold toys, soap, and whatever else you need to store. I also love having storage with holes to promote drying to help prevent toys from mildewing. Various great options hold quite a few toys without taking up much space!
While your toddler focuses on splashing and playing, get to bathing them right away. Once they’re squeaky clean, you can decide whether to let them play for a few more minutes. Finally, never leave your tot unattended in the bath. Ever. Your toddler is more independent now than ever, but he should be left alone in the tub under no circumstances due to slipping and drowning hazards. It’s just not a risk worth taking; even if you think you only need to step away for a minute, don’t! What is your favorite part of tub time with your tot? I’ve got to admit, even though I miss that baby shampoo smell, these days couldn’t get any sweeter!
