Challenge 17 of 52: Safety Baby Bath Tub

When you become a father, suddenly there’s so many things to keep an eye on. Things that we took for granted can be downright dangerous (and fatal) to newborns. This is true even for routine task such as bathing the baby.

The recommended practice is to fill the bath tub with cool water first before finally adding the hot water. Only then we start to bathe the baby. But then, general inexperience plus sleep deprivation can make you forgot the standard practice.

Looking at the IKEA bath tub we had, the green lines grabbed my attention. It already play a role in safety by preventing the bath tub from slipping. It’ll be better if it can indicate the water temperature – green for ideal temperature, blue for too cold and red for too hot. I’m sure it’ll be a hot product among new parents!
