How to bath Baby with ease feat. Shnuggle Bath

Bathing Carson used to scare the living hoolies out of me!! Swear to you, my heart would pound and I'd get a bit of a sweat on trying to keep a firm hold of him but scared I'd also hurt him as he wriggled and squawked the house down. Talk about stressssss!!

I was very kindly offered by Shnuggle to give their Bath a go once Finley had arrived, I had heard good things about them so very happily accepted.

Shnuggle Bath in Mint review
What makes this bath different and how would it make bath time less stressful?

It is lightweight for a start, almost weightless at 0.4kg - until you put the water in. No more lugging big plastic tubs about!

The polypropylene foam material is soft against baby's skin and keeps water warmer for longer.

It also promises to be 1000% stronger than other foams like polystyrene so regardless of it's lighter than light weight, you really can trust it's durability.

The main feature of the Shnuggle Bath is the 'bum bump'. Sounds bizarre, I know, but the ridge on the inside base of the bath literally creates a seat-like area.


Shnuggle Bath Bum Bump Base


How did I get on?

I filled the bath and popped a little baby bath bubbles in to the water. Testing the temperature with the age-old elbow dip test, I was slightly apprehensive as Finley already began to get niggly before I'd even put him in!

The second Finley touched the water, he calmed - Phew! The ergonomic design of the bath acts as a kind of cocoon for him, the high back supporting him and the curving round his shoulders must have made him feel securely held - he didn't make a sound!




Positioning him on the bum-bump, he quite happily 'sat up' in the bath on his own - leaving both my hands free to wash him (and take photo's to embarrass his future girlfriends... obviously!).

This was fantastic. I called Carson and asked if he's like to get involved in bathing his brother, which he jumped at the chance to do - he loves helping out where Finley is concerned, bless him.



As you can see by the pictures, Carson enjoyed being involved and Finley didn't have a care in the world. 




You can purchase the Shnuggle Bath in 5 colours Ocean, Mint, Pearl, Buttercup & Rose. The sample I received was mint, a beautifully gender neutral shade. It retails at £30 from the Shnuggle Online Store and it massively worth that price as Baby can use this product right up until the age of around 6 months.


We truly made bath time - fun time. 
Gone are the dreaded, stress-filled bath days. 
We were all relaxed and calm afterwards, some achievement in my opinion!!

How do you feel about baby bathing - Did it scare the bejeezus out of you too at first?!

DISCLAIMER: This PR Sample was received free of charge. All opinions are my own - open and honest, as always. 
I was not paid for this post.

  11. wow, this is amazing, as i commented on the giveaway post, with my first i had a really long big bath, only used it a couple of times, i really struggled to hold my little one upright, she was constantly slipping, this looks amazing for my next one, i wouldnt have to worry about slipping while im fiddling with bottles and sponges

  21. Seems a lot of parents are initially nervous regarding bathing their baby. The Shnuggle bath seems practical and comfortable for baby and parents. Bath-time should be practical, safe and calming / relaxing after all.
