baby bath toys

Bath time can be a difficult time for any child. Not only is it an incredibly stressful time for parents, but it’s also usually the only chance babies have to get some alone time with their parents. But that doesn’t mean you have to make it so traumatic for your little one! 

Bath toys are great for helping a baby get used to the feeling of water while also encouraging them to explore their environment. Below are just a few of our favorite baby bath toys and tools that will make bath time more fun and interesting for your little one while also making it easier on your parent muscles. 

Trust us, these won’t just help with babies’ stress levels but will also stimulate their senses and encourage creative thinking in ways you never expected! 

Bath Hammock

A baby’s first adventure in the water will be exciting, but it can also be quite terrifying for them. That’s why it’s important to make the transition a happy one and to ease them into it as gently as possible. 

Start introducing a fun bathtime to your baby by getting a bath hammock. A hammock is a support sling tied on both ends of the bathtub. It offers the reassurance of the feeling of being safe in the water and helps your baby feel more comfortable in the water.

Sensory Bath Toys

A bath is a great time to introduce your baby to new textures and shapes. Adding sensory bath toys and accessories to their bath routine can help to alleviate some of that stress and get your little one ready to explore more. 

For toddlers, consider including a sensory experience in their bath with sensory development toys. This will not only help your baby to develop motor skills and stimulate their senses but will also help to improve their concentration, flexibility, and coordination! Baby sensory toys keep babies and infants amused, engaged, and calm during bath time.

Squeeze Toy

Squeeze toys for babies are one of the best baby bath toys you can buy for your little one. They are ideal toys to encourage hand-eye coordination as your baby learns to grasp objects with their hands. Swish the squeeze toy back and forth in the tub or let it float around to entertain your infant as you bathe them. 

Rubber bath toys are available in a variety of designs, colors, and shapes that are fun to play with such as sea creatures, land animals, or even the classic duck!

Baby Shower Toy

Make bath time more enjoyable and less stressful for your little one with a shower toy. That’s why it’s important to invest in a bathtub shower toy that babies can play with while you clean them. 

A shower toy is designed to mimic a full shower experience for your baby while in the bathtub, thus letting them have a fun bathtime experience! Bath shower toys are safe and easy to maneuver. Just let your little one play with the mini toy shower while you gently spray water over them.

Floating Fun

Floating toys are another great way to make bath time fun and enjoyable for your little one. They can float in the water, allowing your baby to engage in sensory exploration while also providing them with a bit of comfort while they’re relaxing in the tub. Many of these toys also vibrate or have other additional features that make for even more interesting play. 

These toys are often small and lightweight, making them easy to store when not in use and to take with you when traveling. They’re often brightly colored, which helps your baby to find them easily, and they make a popping sound that can be used to encourage your baby to explore the sounds made by the water. 

STEM Bath Toys

Babies all need to be able to learn about their environment and experiment with it. Toddlers can do that even during bath time!

There are STEM bath toys available in the market that promotes STEM-based learning. Introduce physics and hydro dynamics to your child with the help of bath-friendly STEM toys. Most of these toys are equipped with interchangeable knobs, sorting cups, and shower to encourage babies’ motor skills and imagination.

Adding bath toys and bath accessories to the mix can help to alleviate some of that stress and get your little one ready to explore more. Baby Company's bath toys are great for helping a baby to get used to the feeling of water while also encouraging them to explore their environment.
