Best Child Bath Safety Products

Dec 31, 2007
Probably one of your most precious memories were times spent in the bath. You'd want your child to experience happy moments at bath time, too, without him/her being traumatized from slipping on floors or falling into the water. During a child bath, you should always consider safety first.

A child may love or dread bath time. If your child is already used to baths, it's still a must to have safety products or features in hand (even if he or she is behaving during baths). You can never really foretell when accidents are going to happen. You may be picking your child after finishing a bath, but the child may slip over the floor once you put him/her down. You must take even greater precautions for kids who are particularly dreadful of water, as they can move a lot and may even prevent you from holding them. Thus, some safety child bath products would be useful.

Below are preventive measures and child bath products you might want to utilize to keep your child safe while bathing:

Prevent burning and scalding.

Digital thermometers can assess the temperature of the tub's water. Always fill the tub before placing your child in. To test the heat, run water over your hand-you should be comfortable enough that your hand doesn't twitch. When your child is done bathing, turn the hot water off first before the cold one.

Prevent water from overflowing.

Overflowing water does not only create a mess, it also poses great danger to you and your child. You may be keeping electrical devices such as blow dryers and the radio away from the tub, but water that has spilled over can reach plugged devices. Many of us are busy doing two things at once at home and usually leave the water running until we think the tub's ready. In this case it might be a good idea for you to purchase a child bath alarm. This will alarm you when the tub is almost full.

Prevent head injuries.

The waterspout can actually hurt your child's head, especially when your child is moving a lot. Child bath spout covers can protect this from happening, and they come in many colorful designs, too.

Prevent slipping in the tub.

During a child bath your child may be moving a lot. Prevent slippage by providing rubber mats at the bottom of the tub. There are also now seats with suction cups to keep your child seated and secure.

Prevent slipping outside the tub.

While you are attempting to put him/her on the floor, your child can still slip. It's always best to place a mattress or rug right beside the tub.

Your child isn't safe unless he has you supervising his bath the whole time. Even with safety products it's not too impossible for your child to slip or have the risk of drowning. Make child bath time a fun and safe routine.
