Bath Toys

Water toys will keep your baby entertained when he's in the tub. Use rubber ducks, stacking cups, and floating-foam sets to make bathtime a treat rather than a chore. Check toy labels for age recommendation, and always supervise your child when he's bathing. Dry toys after you use them to prevent bacteria from building up.
