Cute stuff is great. We love featuring it. But sometimes we just have to point out the more practical things in life. Like the tools needed to make bathtime easier for parents. Here's two items we've found, that don't scream "cutest shower gift ever," but will no doubt make bathing baby a bit easier.
Aquatopia (we first saw it featured at AT: The Nursery) gives sore knees a needed break, while also putting a few bathing necessaties at close reach. Although Aquatopia is a European product, Burlington Coat Factory carries it online for $29.99.
Next, avoid taking an unplanned bath with baby with Coocoose, the bath towel you wear. The idea of a bath apron has been around for a while (there's also models that have detachable towels), but we like the Coocoose for its size (large enough to be used for newborns to toddlers) and for its simple style. This product also originates in Europe, but can also be purchased at Baby Dagny for $58.
