Baby WashPOD – A Different Kind of Bath Tub

The WashPOD, a different type of baby bath tub

Before having my third, someone had sent me a link to the european baby bath tub, the washPod. One glance at it and I thought, HOW WRONG! It’s a dunking tank for babies!

Whoops. There I go judging before I actually tried it.

Long story short, when I actually was pregnant – I was putting stuff on our baby wish list and had again come across this washPod thing.

The further I searched, the more I read how people LOVED this thing. SO I put it on the registry. If we got it, we’d give it a try – but if we didn’t, we’d buy the standard baby tub.

We got it. And it’s amazing. Before freaking out too much at the sight of this – check out these photos:

    I love that I can bathe the baby in his nursery. I just put down a towel underneath the pod before bathing the baby. You fill the pod with a few inches of water, not much just enough to cover the bottom 60% or so of your baby.

    It's so odd, as soon as the baby is somewhat submerged (the water goes about an inch and a half below his arm pits) - his entire body relaxes. He absolutely loves to just sit there. Keep both hands on the baby!

    And yes, once you remove, the baby will freak. But that's not the pod's fault :)

With our third kid, we used the pod for his first 9 months. It was quick and easy to wash out – you just dump it!

While Amazon has a few different of tub type options, the one we have is the Prince WashPOD (referral link) – it’s the most affordable pod option at around $25.
