Bathing a newborn can be a little bit stressful at first—babies get slippery when wet! But this week's take it or leave it may give you an alternative to a traditional baby bath tub.

Item: Bathing Buddies Baby Shower Sling

Cost: $25

What it does: This soft mesh sling allows you to take baby into the shower with you rather than having to clean him in a slippery tub or trying to wash him in the shower with one arm while hold him in the other.

Pros: Many babies dislike baths and this is one way for you to hold and soothe your baby and get him clean. Like any sling, it promotes bonding and it comes in several sizes. You'll be able to sneak in a shower without worrying about your baby.

Cons: Some babies may not like the shower.

What do you think?


Will you put the Bathing Buddies Baby Shower Sling on your baby shower registry?

I think that is a great idea.  My 3 month old son loves his baths but this would be so much easier if you just wanted to give a quick shower or there is only one adult available.

o so take it. I always try to take a shower for work before he wakes up but he always wakes up first then I am left either holding him while I shower or letting him cry while I shower. Never a good start to a day!

I'm considering a wet ring sling for the shower.  This is a great idea but I need more adjustablility.  I'd love it if I could tighten it better.  : )

i like it,    but i voted not sure...i take my showers much hotter than baby could stand. i can not take a shower with lukewarm water.for playing in water in the summer time it would be excellent though.
