The New Concept in Bathing Babies! The benefits of the TummyTub are acknowledged in maternity hospitals and homes throughout Europe. Endorsed by doctors, midwives and health visitors. TummyTub was designed in the Netherlands by caregivers to ease the transition from the comfort of the mother's womb. Babies naturally adopt the fetal position and it is amazing to see how quickly they calm and relax.
TummyTub®
TummyTub® Two Step Stool
The TummyTub is available in three different colors; clear, pink and blue.

For nine months your baby feels safe, comfortable and secure in the womb. After birth everything changes for your baby, who suddenly experiences bright lights, new sights and sounds, hunger, gravity and an ever-changing world. The TummyTub® has been developed in cooperation with physicians, midwives and nursery nurses, to ease the transition from the secure environment of the womb to the new world. The unique womb shape helps your baby to relax, and become calm in the familiar fetal position.

Although the Tub can be purchased on its own, there is an add-on called the Two Step Stool which raises the tub to allow you to wash your baby from a seated position. The Two Step Stool also comes with a washing cup to aid in bathing your baby. The Two Step Stool comes in two parts. When the top attachment is removed you have a child's seat with a storage compartment. This can also be adjusted to provide a step stool which is great for children to use in the bathroom. The Two Step Stool is available in three colors; blue, pink and green.

How much water should I use?
How do I hold my baby?
You decide on how much water you need to bath your baby. The water level markings on the tub are intended only as a guide, as not every baby is the same size. However, in the first few weeks after birth it is important that there is sufficient water to cover your baby's shoulders. This will ensure your baby does not get cold.

In the "sitting" position the rounded shape of the TummyTub® helps to support your baby. You only need to support your baby's head under the chin. The advantage is that you always have one free hand to wash and comfort your baby. In the "floating" position you have one hand under your baby's chin, the other at the back of the head or you can place both your hands under your baby's armpits.
