- A classic oval bath is the most popular and common. Such models are widely represented in any children's stores and can differ only in size and color. The main advantages of such a tray include availability and affordable cost. However, bathing in her child alone will not work, you will definitely need someone second to hold the baby. Salvation in this situation will be a hill for swimming, which will allow the child to lie comfortably during water procedures.
- A bathing bath for a newborn can be at once anatomical, that is, it has a design that is initially equipped with a slide or a special holding device like a hammock. In it, the baby feels comfortable and comfortable, although he can not swim freely. However, the very process of bathing becomes as convenient and safe as possible and can be carried out by one of the parents.
- Inflatable baths for bathing newborns, photos of which attract and encourage instant purchase, are very convenient if you are nomadic and often move from place to place. It's also easy to take this thing with you to rest or to your grandmother's dacha - it will take up little space in your luggage.

- Recently, an antimicrobial bath for bathing appeared on the market. For a newborn with sensitive skin, this is real salvation. In the plastic from which the bath is made, even during the production process, a special compound is poured, which is capable of destroying all the microbes that are on the surface. Such an adaptation does not need to be disinfected, which greatly reduces the preparation time for bathing. The only negative that scares away most parents is the high price.
Try to buy a bath with a drain hole - this will allow you to easily drain the water or change it during bathing. However, please note that the cork should be as visible to the child as possible. And pay attention to the legs - if they are rubberized, then this bath will be stable and as safe as possible.
