Tummy Tub 'The Original', designed in the Netherlands by childcarers helps to ease the transition from the comfort of the mothers' womb. The benefits are acknowledged in homes and maternity hospitals throughout Europe where doctors, midwives, health visitors and maternity hospitals endorse it. It is currently used by more than 300 maternity hospitals in the UK.
The Tummy Tub(R) makes bath time enjoyable from birth; its special, original design ensures that babies adopt and relax in the familiar and natural foetal position. Baby can be immersed up to shoulder level safely and remains warmer for longer. It also helps babies with colic or acid reflux, as being in the upright position instead of horizontal, coupled with the warm water enveloping the baby up to their shoulders, helps to alleviate discomfort for the baby and can help to expel trapped wind.
Parents and carers also benefit from using the Tummy Tub(R), stress free bathing, easy handling, lightweight even when full, ergonomic hand grips and a wide rim to support the parents' arms all help to make bath time easy. An anti-skid base offers extra safety.
