I am a sucker for baby gear, especially baby gear that makes my life easier, so I was excited to try out the Puj Tub. It is super lightweight, easy to use and store, and it can be used with newborns all the way up to six months. The Puj Tub is like no other baby tub I’ve seen or used—it’s a soft piece of foam that fits in your bathroom sink. I was a bit skeptical, but being the gear enthusiast that I am, I was happy to give it a whirl.
I was intrigued when the tub arrived in a box that was only about an inch thick. The perfect opportunity to try it out came soon after its arrival, when little Charlie had one of his first major diaper blowouts. It was one of those don’t-waste-the-wipes kind of messes, so I decided to take the Puj Tub for a test drive. It was so easy to set up, just two simple folds and it snaps into place. The tub is sized for most bathroom sinks, and it fit in mine perfectly and filled up in no time. I carefully placed Charlie in the water, and he happily sat there for the quickest, easiest bath ever. The shape of the tub allows him to sit slightly propped up. He just looks comfortable cradled in there. And I was amazed that I was able to bathe him without breaking my back bending over the bathtub. It was more like washing dishes than bathing a baby, a real no-fuss experience.
I was even more ecstatic when I realized that the Puj tub stored perfectly in the towel rack inside my shower, completely flat and out of the way. No leaving it soaking my bathroom floor or wondering where to put it when I needed to get into the shower myself!
Another thing that’s always bothered me about my traditional tub was cleaning it. I am always cautious when using chemicals on anything that will be touching Charlie’s skin, but obviously his tub had to be cleaned. The Puj tub eliminates that worry, since it is made of an anti-fungal, anti-bacterial material that, coupled with the way it hangs to dry, virtually eliminates the need for scrubbing.
