This bathtub is for those parents who are looking to make bathtime a more enjoyable and less stressful experience. It is for parents who are looking for a brand that they can trust since TOMY is very well-known and reputable.
This tub is also great as it grows with your child. This is made possible thanks to the provided sling for newborns, which, once they outgrow, can simply be removed and allow the baby to sit in the tub itself.
This is definitely a home-use tub due to its size. It isn’t very portable, but this does allow for a far sturdier built. This also makes it perfect for those with bigger babies.
This baby bathtub includes a detachable sling that supports newborns or smaller babies until they can sit in the tub itself.
Overview of Features

With a sling being provided, this bathtub can grow with your child, thus increasing the age range of babies who can actually use the tub. This will save parents some money in the short-term as they won’t need to update their tub after the first month or two.
The First Years’ bathing tub utilizes a deep ergonomic design to cradle your child comfortably while he is in the tub. It also has a built-in drain plug for quick water drainage as well as a built-in basin where you can store soaps, shampoos, or even toys.

How to Use
The bathtub itself is incredibly intuitive and straightforward in its use. Being a single-form unit, parents simply slide the bathtub into the sink, catching the ledges with the lip of the tub. Putting it in the bathtub couldn’t be simpler as it is also freestanding.
The detachable sling is fully adjustable too. Parents can simply tighten or loosen the straps through the conventional buckle system. You can then fill up the water basin to an appropriate level so as to ready it for bathtime.
When it comes to baby bathtubs, there are so many great options available on the market. A good example of another excellent choice from a trustworthy brand is the Fisher-Price 4-in-1 Sling’n’Seat Tub.
This tub boasts a sling for newborns, a baby stopper to prevent slipping and sliding, a sit-me-up support for your child, and a roomy toddler tub once they get older. This tub also offers a better-seated position when compared to The First Years’ bathtub.

Its durable construction allows it to be kept and used for your next child or as a hand-me-down to a friend. It offers very similar functionality to more expensive baby bathtubs.
The main downside to this type of bathtub is that it doesn’t adapt to different sink sizes, so it’s important to measure your sinks to make sure that this unit would be a good fit for your home. TOMY produces quality, well-designed products, and this baby bathtub is no exception!
