Mini Spa

The Fisher-Price Soothing River Luxury Calming Vibrations Tub works all the way to age 1, but it’s heaven for first-time bathers. The tub comes with a cozy newborn sling and vibrates to keep your little one calm. ($45; buybuybaby.com)

Good Clean Fun

Unlike most squeezable bath toys, Sago Mini’s Easy Clean Bath Squirters and Floaties have removable tops so you can thoroughly drain, scrub, and dry the interiors. No more nasty mold! ($25 for an eight-piece set; amazon.com)

Bye, Suds!

Few babies like getting water dumped on their head; Skip Hop’s Moby Waterfall Bath Rinser makes it more pleasant. The cup’s soft yellow lip protects your infant’s eyes. ($10; amazon.com)

Sink Seat

The foam Blooming Baby Bath Lotus cradles your baby in the basin if you prefer to wash her there (no kneeling!), and it dries fast too. ($40; amazon.com)

Hot or Not?

If the water dips below 89.6°F or inches above 100.4°F, the Aquatopia Digital Audible Alarm emits a nice loud beep so you can make adjustments. Phew! ($12; amazon.com)

Personal Tub

If your baby has outgrown his little tub but isn’t quite stable enough for the big one, try the Summer Infant My Bath Seat. Three adjustable suction arms secure to your tub sides to keep your baby from sliding. (Ages 5 to 10 months, $40; amazon.com)

No Slipping

No more slipping, thanks to the Boon Ripple Bathtub Mat. It has suction cups to keep it in place, drain holes to help reduce mold and mildew, and a hook so you can hang it to dry from your showerhead. ($20; amazon.com)

A Bathtime Distraction

The Yookidoo Sensory Bath Mobile grows with your little one—it can clip to a baby tub now and suction to your regular tub later. She’ll love how the flowers spin and sprinkle while the birds spray a gentle stream. (Ages 0+, $30; amazon.com)
