I have to tell you when my first son was born, I found bath time a little terrifying. A tiny infant with little control over his own body that was as slippery as a bar of wet soap? Yikes. I was not the kind of person who was going to feel comfortable putting my baby in the kitchen sink (germs!) or in the large bathtub (slip and slide city!), so I was definitely a candidate for a baby tub. However, we also lived in a tiny one bedroom apartment, and I hated having to find space to store my old bulky baby tub.
Stokke has solved both problems with their new Flexi Bath. It’s a baby bathtub that grows with your child but still folds up to a slim profile when not in use, making it easy to store or even travel with.
Big enough for children up to four years old, the Flexi Bath has plenty of space to make bath time fun and comfortable for older babies or toddlers but small enough to keep baby right at your fingertips. Plus, you don’t have to waste as much water.
Fold it up when you’re done, and it can easily slide away discreetly when not in use.
Use the Flexi Bath Newborn Support insert (sold separately) for babies who can’t sit upright yet to help keep them supported and to free your hands for washing and playing. Its ergonomic shape is meant to mimic the angle of a parent’s supportive arm, and it allows baby’s feet to remain in the water to move freely and kick.
Despite my early fears as a new mom, bath time can really be a lot of fun. It’s a great time to play and bond with your baby as they splash and giggle in their own space, and the Flexi Bath’s features, such as its non-slip base, can make bath time easier so that you can actually enjoy these moments.
The Flexi Bath comes in several fun colors, and because it’s been built to be larger than the average baby bathtub, your little one can enjoy the tub for years—the true hallmark of a Stokke product. Retailing at just $40, the Flexi Bath is a great value for how long you will be able to use it.
