Bath time at our house is really fun for the kids, but I have to admit that it always makes me just a little nervous. Ok, maybe I should be an insurance agent or something, but there really are so many factors involved with bath time that could actually be dangerous. Aside from the obvious use of common sense, accidents can happen, so I was pleased as can be to test out a few bath safety products from Aquatopia.
The first item we tried was the Aquatopia Bath Time Safety™ Faucet & Tap Protector. This is a soft cushion designed to cover your faucet. It helps protect your child from any “owies” that may occur from slipping or standing up under the faucet.
The suction cups stick to the wall so that it stays put. I like the design of it overall. I really like that it’s plain so that the kids are not tempted to pull it down and play with it, although my oldest son does likes to pull it down and put it on the opposite side of the bath as a head pillow, but then I can easily place it back over the faucet for the smaller kids bath later.
The second product we tried was the Trevor the Turtle Bath Time Safety™ Audible Thermometer. Fun and functional, the turtle beeps when the temperature of the water is too hot (100.4ºF) or too cold (89.6ºF).
I think this is an absolute necessity if you have smaller kids who can’t tell you their water is too hot. It just takes the guesswork out of the picture and I love that. It also makes a great tub toy!
The third and final product we tested was the Aquatopia Deluxe Bath Time Safety™ Easy Kneeler. This is a great gift for any mom who bathes their child. I’m sure you already know that kneeling on the floor can be painful if you don’t have proper cushioning.
This mat is wonderfully cushiony!It also features a non-slip grip underneath it and folds up for storage. It has the cool pouches for shampoo or baby bath or toys, etc. I was thrilled to learn that it is machine washable, because it’s bound to get icky after being in the water for a while. I have washed mine a couple of times and it comes out nice and clean each time. My only (very small) complaint about it is that our tub has a door on it, so I need to remove the mat to take a shower. Not a big deal, but those of you with shower curtains, would be able to just leave it up for convenience. I still love it and use it every time!
I do feel that these items help make bath time safer overall. Once I tried them, I wondered how I went without them for so long. They all get two thumbs up from me!
