I can see it vividly. A picture of myself, by little sister Heather, who’s four years younger, and our baby sister Lauren, maybe six months at the time. All butt naked and crammed into a bathtub together. Mind you I was 11. But we all had big grins having a grand old time. I’m sure my mom still has that picture somewhere. Probably hanging on to it as blackmail. I think everyone has a picture of themselves taken while they were taking a bath as a baby, or even a kid. So it’s only fair that I carry on the tradition for posterity’s sake.

I have some photos of my first two, that clearly show how far my photography skills have come.

Along with my ability to white balance; another something that’s come a long way are options for keeping baby bath time safe. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the same day my 11-year-old naked bathtub picture was taken, but probably around that time. I stood up really quick and scraped my back on the bathtub spout. It’s one of the only injuries I remember and still cringe about to this day. I’m pretty sure I have a scar to prove it. I have warned by kids about during each bath.

When I got a box of goodies from my blog partner Munchkin, one of the things inside was a bathtub spout guard. I was so excited and immediately put it on our bathtub faucet. It’s made to help guard against bumps, burns, or in cases like mine, scrapes.

I bought a transitional tub for Lil’ J when she was a baby (that yellow duck tub pictured above). Now Munchkin has a 2.0 version that’s a swan. I blew it up and set it on the bed and Lil’ J screamed when she saw it when she got home from school. Lee Lee isn’t sitting up yet but it’ll be perfect when she is. Like the suck tub, the swan also has the white hot technology to show when the water is too hot for baby.

For now we are using the Munchkin Clean tub that’s great on the counter or in the bathtub for washing your floppy little infant. Personally I like it on the counter better, so I don’t have to bend over. Lee Lee seemed to like it better there too. It has a little pout on the end that lets the dirty water run out of it while you’re washing your baby.

In another post I mentioned my excitement for the new squirt bath toys now can be opened and dried out to prevent mold. Lee Lee isn’t playing with those just yet but her siblings are. We should be able to keep them clean until she’s ready to use them herself.

It’s still a bit surreal starting over and doing this all a third time. I’m looking forward to the day that I can plop the three of my babies into a tub for one adorable picture I’ll forever treasure (and get to use as blackmail).

I love bath pictures! Just took some of my girls a few weeks ago! I want that swan!

Mary Sue Owens says:

Some of these neat bath products are also good for our senior family members. That spout cover is great for them as well as the youngest in the family. :>)

Munchkin has a lot of great products!! I would love the bath spout cover! So been there with kids scraping their back on it. 🙁 But I also like their sippy cups.

Elle says:

The Magical Firefly™ Soother and Projector looks darling! I haven’t seen any night-time soothers like that before.

Yolanda says:

My newest DD isn’t old enough for the big tub yet either. Her umbilical stump fell off yesterday! My three girls are going to hate bath time with all the photos I’m going to take. I can’t wait!

The Latch bottle is my favorite but we use so many of their items! love them all!

I saw several things that I like. I love the variety of bath toys and I like the sleeper that has the feet that roll up so they wear it to play during the day or to make it where they can continue to wear when they grow. I also like the projector and some of the other nursery items.

Sarah Bihms says:

My son loves the latch pacifiers! When he is quiet and happy I’m in heaven, ha ha.

valerie sobus says:

we have loved every munchkin product we have owned! we probably get the most use out of our snack cups :p but one thing from the site i saw that i loved was their bath toy organizer. our bath toy situation is a little crazy (just a bunch of toys in one very tiny plastic bowl that is constantly getting knocked over in our bathroom).

I love the big duck! My daughter loved this so much when she took a bath in it and then also played in it when it wasnt bath time. I could hardly keep her out of it! I also love their water hand held cup. It’s so soft and can be gently pressed to the forehead to minimize water run down to avoid the eyes. These are both just as important as toys in the tub to play with.
