BABY: Bathtime with Minene Mi 1st Bath Buddy

Bathtime is such a fun part of the bedtime routine, but when it comes to bathing babies it can be a bit tricky. They suddenly become so slippery making simply holding them hard work, let alone washing them. When Isabella was a baby I would have a bath with her, it helped with breastfeeding and was the perfect opportunity to have skin on skin during those early months. As much as I would love to do the same with Poppy it just isn't as easy this time. Having Isabella means that I can't just hop in the bath with Poppy whenever I want to, so I needed a solution to this whole 'solo bathing two children at once' scenario. 

This is where the Minene Mi 1st Bath Buddy* (£26) has been a bathtime essential in our house. The cushioned baby bath support is so incredibly soft, secure and safe, providing parents with a supportive environment to wash their babies in. You can place the Bath Buddy in a baby bath, regular bath or even a sink if you have a large enough one. If Poppy was our first child I would have always popped it in a baby bath or sink, however having to wash two children simultaneously means that most of the time it goes in our main bath. As a result I do run a shallow bath because the Bath Buddy doesn't sit very high off the ground. This may sound a problem, but it has been a blessing in disguise. Isabella used to splash so much the water would go everywhere, however now she is a lot calmer thanks to having Poppy in there with her and there's no big splashes soaking the walls anymore! 

The surround of the Bath Buddy is filled with tiny balls (think beanbag texture), which helps to fully support Poppy's head/body, makes it very lightweight and helps it to dry quickly too. The base is a sort of netting, which lets the water through helping to keep Poppy warm during the bath and makes cleaning her easier. It has a fabric loop to allow you to hang it up to dry, but it is worth noting that it will drip after use. I therefore find it best to hang it on the taps in the bath to dry, allowing any excess water to drip into the bath and not on the floor. 

It has made washing Poppy easier and as you can see from the photos Poppy now really enjoys bathtime! The Minene Bath Buddy is available in a range of designs, including a Frankie Frog in Green/Black & White, Pretty Kitty, Playful Pup and Pink Owl. Something for everyone! 

Which animal would you like the Bath Buddy to be available in?

  4. This looks so much more comfortable than the ones they had when mine were small. They were so hard and unforgiving, she looks much more at home in this one.

  21. What a great idea. I always worried mine would slip out of my grip when they were babies, so this would have been amazing to have.

  24. That's such a great idea. When BattleKid was younger we had a baby bath with support and once I was mostly recovered I too started having baths with him to make things easier. If we were ever to have another baby I'd consider one of these.
