Before having a baby of my own I gave little thought to baby baths. I thought they were all the same. You set your little bundle of joy in the mini tub and gently scrub away. It’s easy, right? Then I found myself holding soap with one hand and my baby with another and trying not to have a heart attack! Was the water the right temperature? It left me wishing I had an extra set of hands and that I would have done a little more research on what was out there. Check out these products and make a decision for yourself!
