I love my tummy tub!!!

A 'tummy tub' - basically a different way of referring to a bucket, it seems a tummy tub is the preferred method of bathing babies in Holland. As well as a standard bath & stand, the tub was on our must have list from the kraamzorg company. Apparently it mimics being back in the womb which is why babies love it and it's so highly recommended here.

The first time Oliver had a bath was naturally in the tummy tub - when he was just a couple of days old. He was in the couveuse afdeling at the time so because of the IVs, the nurse had to do his first bath while we watched on - and boy, did he love it....


It was a Stroopy day spa in there...



Since we've been home, we've been bathing Oliver mostly in the tummy tub. He cries and cries when his clothes come off but the second he goes in the water, he is totally relaxed...




Sadly, Ollie's tummy tub days have come to an end. Our little boef isn't so little anymore - he's already more then 1kg up on his birth weight and growing so quickly, he barely fits in his little bucket anymore :-(

Time to upgrade to the big boy bath I think...
