Grows with baby…

  • Stage 1 – Supported: Baby feels safe and secure in this baby bath, and after a few months you can have both hands free to wash and play with your baby.  This makes bath time an enjoyable bonding experience
  • Stage 2 – Sitting: As baby starts to sit forwards, the Bottom Bump makes them feel secure while giving them a feeling of independence.

The baby bath is also an excellent aid for babies who may have additional needs and need more support during bath time.

This support makes bath time safer and less stressful, while helping baby to continue to develop important motor skills and core strength.

    Great purchase. Love that baby could essentially sit up from newborn stage. Baby seems to love it every time!

  2. Lisa B

    Makes bathtime easy!
    Got this from BOTM Nelson for our newborn and absolutely love it.
    We used from the start and our midwife showed us to fill high and then support baby to float across the top initially. Within a few weeks baby was able to be supported perched up against seat and I look forward to continue its use when baby can sit up independently.

    I also got one for a friend and she loves how she can now bath baby without the needed help from her husband required with their previous big cumbersome bath.

  3. Sarah Kate Morini (verified owner)

    Absolutely awesome. Baby can sit up, very supported, so easy to bath baby especially alone. I could fit mine in my kitchen sink and it was great because I didn’t have to lend over. The little groove seat and soft padding makes it fun for baby! You can take it anywhere, in summer full with cool water and pop outside on the grass for a fun splash! Have bought this for numerous mums and they all love it. For 6 months of use everyday it’s well worth the money.

  4. r.skansie (verified owner)

    Our 4 month old son loves this bath! We struggled with his regular baby bath with holding him and washing him at the same time, he also loves splashing about but would kick one end and almost hit his head at the other. Today with his new bath he had fun, and we had fun! Other plusses include its portability, the bum seat, and comfy padded back. I kid you not this bath solved all our bath problems

  5. Risharn (verified owner)

    Nice and easy to transport around and use anywhere in the house. My baby loves it as he can sit up and see everything going on around him.

  6. Bianca

    The bum bump support is great as it helps bub sit while having a bath which allows for minimal support from me while I bath her. Very lightweight, compact and easy to put into stand and drain water from

  7. Alana

    This baths design makes bath time so much easier especially when Mum/Dad isn’t home to help the other! Considering how much you use it, it is definitely worth the money!!

  8. Waimihi

    Absolutely amazing baths. First baby and first month of second baby’s life I used a bath in a changing table and I thought those were great. But looked to downsize and I find the shnuggle bath soooo convienent. My baby loves sitting straight up in his bath, and even during the day when he’s wide awake we put him in with cushions not only when he’s having his bath. Absolutely love it, and not looking back to another bath lol

  9. Erin

    This bath is great! We save so much water and our baby is so comfortable sitting in it.. It also helped his grandparents feel confident enough to give him a bath too, as he wasn’t going to slip away from them given the seat and back supports. Size is fairly easy to stash away too when not in use.

  10. Rachel Rennwandt

    Fantastic bath! Totally recommend – as a mum of 9 I’ve found this invaluable, I can fill and empty independently, it uses much less water than a conventional baby bath and the bum bump makes baby so much easier to hold and stay safe. Best purchase I’ve made for a long time!

  11. Shannan

    This bath is an absolute treat! So much easier bathing baby now. She can sit and I can use both of my hands to wash her rather than one being needed for support. I also love that it’s small and doesn’t use very much water so I can carry it to any room to bathe her.

  12. Lauren

    Highly recommend this bath. We love it! Easy to use, doesn’t use too much water and bubs sits so comfortably. Even doubles as somewhere to keep bubs & toys all in one place 😉 Worth a purchase!

  13. Jessica

    My daughter absolutely loves bath time in this bath, I wish I knew about them sooner as I would have purchased from birth. Its a great design & makes bath time a breeze! Highly recommend, even talked multiple friends into buying this bath as it is a must have!!

  14. Cass

    Great bath! small and compact, easy on the back and arms as you don’t have to bend and hold your bubs while also trying to clean a wriggly baby. Well worth the investment.

  15. Tea’

    Bath times were "screaming baby" sessions, my bub is 3 and a half months now and she’s not screaming down the house anymore. If I knew of this product sooner I would’ve purchased it earlier but regardless we both love it. Awesome product

  16. Courtney

    Such a good purchase! My boy loves his bath times now. So supportive and stops him from slipping. So much easier to bath him. Great product!!

  17. Lalo Kaitapu

    This is the best bath i’ve ever used. My lil one loves it. It’s small and compact. Easy when we took our bubba away the shnuggle bath didn’t take up much room in the boot. I definitely recommend with an A+++

  18. Khyshanie Hamlin (verified owner)

    I absolutely LOVE this bath. I don’t know why i didn’t purchase this earlier. My son LOVES it aswell. So easy to carry from the bathroom to the lounge or bedroom. Fits in our van when travelling anywhere out of town. I love how baby is able to sit without me bending right over and breaking my back. This product is well worth the money. Would most definitely recommend for all mummy’s. This is a MUST HAVE product in your home 🙂

  19. Sarah

    Fantastic bath. The shape means my boys are supported and bathing them is fast and manageable. Only uses 2L of water too so doesn’t drain the hot water tank. Very satisfied with this product

  20. Rachel (verified owner)

    This is so amazing product. I would highly recommend this bath to all momma’s out there. I wish I discover this shnnugle bath long time ago with my 1st born. You can use it anywhere. Easy to manage baby in the bath without any worries to strain his back or slip. Must have for baby list product.

  21. Jess

    We looooove our Shnuggle bath! It’s perfect for our newborn daughter, easy to manage baby in the bath and no way for her to slip around! Perfect!

  22. Lucy Mackay

    This is such a great bath! We’ve used it for our girl since newborn and she loves it. I love how supportive it is for them and you can use it just about anywhere! Was great at first as I had a c section so bending down to a bath wasn’t really an option and this just placed easy on the kitchen bench.

  23. Rebecca Sewell

    This is an amazing product! When our baby outgrew his baby bath we didn’t know what to do because we don’t have a bath, only a shower. This bath is the answer. Because of the shape baby will be able to fit comfortably in the bath for quite some time and he absolutely loves it. It also allows him to spend longer in the bath because he can sit up in it himself without us having to hold him up the whole time. Well worth the money and I definitely recommend it to others

  24. Mindy (verified owner)

    These baths are so great! Bubs is so supported that you don’t have to strain your back to use, plus the tall shape means minimal water mess. Highly recommend, makes a great gift too 🙂

  25. Caroline Cunninghame (verified owner)

    These baths are amazing! I have twin girls and it’s made our bath time so easy. I always felt really uncomfortable bathing them in standard baths and would get my husband to do it. Now I feel super confident to bath them on my own and at the same time. LOVE shnuggle!

  26. Kaino

    I would highly recommend this bath. My daughter loves bath time especially because she feels safe in it. It’s really easy to set up and put away. We have a hook inside our shower/bath which allows us to hang this bath. It’s very convenient 🙂

  27. Jade

    This is the best purchase ever I wish I had brought it sooner. My little one hates the bath so showering was the only way without tears. He loved the shnuggle bath straight away even more so likes that he’s sitting up and feels supported in every way. Amazing service from the ladies at babyonethemove Christchurch central with fast communication when my order arrived and so welcoming when I went into their store, answered all my questions and gave amazing recommendations.

  28. Nikita

    This is the best money I spent buying baby items. Super easy to fill and empty, nice and light to carry. It doesn’t use much water at all, and baby is supported well. My Son is a tall 1year old and still fits comfortably.

  29. Carmel (verified owner)

    I only wish I had bought this bath earlier. No back pain, easy to carry from bathroom to lounge. I can bath baby while sitting on the couch. Love it and so does bub!!

  30. Kadesha

    This bath is amazing!
    An absolute must-have, it is lightweight, compact, easy to move around, great for a variety of ages….my son is 6 months and still has plenty of room (my 4-year-old even jumped into it today, after my son). I have a bad back and ended up having surgery at 2 months post-birth so this bath has been a life saver….since using this bath my neck and shoulder pain went as well, so bath time actually became fun.

  31. Lisa rutter

    Absolutely amazing bath! So great for my back and just super well thought of for the convenience of a bathing baby!! What an invention!! Service in our Dunedin store is also worth mentioning as it is always the best!!

  32. Lisa rutter

    These baths are amazing! What an invention! I cannot wait to use mine on my bubba but I can see it’s going to save my back and just be incredible! The help I received from the Dunedin store was and always is amazing too!

  33. Hine (verified owner)

    LOVE this bath – well worth the money.
    Makes bathing so easy and baby can sit up leaving hands free to wash them from a young age. The only criticism is it was awkward with the first couple of baths when baby is really newborn and still naturally curled up/not stretched out properly. From a few weeks old though it is perfect.

  34. Alexandra

    Super supportive bath!
    Our wee prem gal is only 4kg and this bath supports her so well.
    Also, it doesn’t use much water so it’s fast to fill… or refill if she poops in it

  35. Laura

    This bath has been awesome! So easy to bathe my baby without help as it props her up so I can focus on bathing her rather than figuring out how to hold her safely and wash at the same time.

  36. Samantha

    I cannot recommend this bath enough, bath baby, anywhere, I find on the table the best for myself to save my back from getting sore, also is the warmest room in the house so he can enjoy his bath for longer.
    I recommend this bath to all my mummy friends. I love the bum support to stop the baby from slipping down makes it easier to bath having 2 hands-free. Easy to empty and clean aswell, best buy so far for my 3 1/2-month-old baby.

  37. Zoe

    I cannot recommend this bath more. It just made bath time fun and stress-free not having to balance my baby constantly in my arms as I bath her. Instead, I got to sit next to her and interact and have some really special moments

  38. Jess

    So happy with this bath 🙂 definitely a game-changer. She loves bath time now plus this heaps to strengthen her neck muscles.

  39. Jess

    This bath is a game changer!! She loves bathing now and helps to strengthen her neck muscles! So so so happy thank you!!!

  40. Serenity

    Absolutely love this bath for my 2-month-old. Easy on the back when lifting. Baby can sit in comfortably and I don’t have to wreck my wrist trying to hold her up like in a regular baby bath. Only needs a small amount of water. I’ll definitely let all friends and family know this bath is GRRREAT!!

  41. Amy Knopp

    I really love this bath. I brought one for my son when he was around 5 months old and he’s 11 months now and still going strong. I often put it in the shower now with his older sister and it keeps him upright without me having to strain my back holding him. It’s easy to fill up, don’t have to use much water and it’s not too heavy to carry. The water comes up to a good level also. Would definitely recommend this to anyone needing a good long-lasting baby bath.

  42. Clare Beeby

    My daughter and daughter-in-law are both thrilled with the two that I bought for them. So easy to manage and lift with water in and babies sit so easily. Great investment. Definitely, recommend and they both love the colours they got.

  43. Shelley Rose Fielder

    Love the Shnuggle bath! Easy to use and light weight – baby is so calm in this bath. Highly recommend!

  44. Louise Croft

    Bought this bath for our twin boys and they love being able to sit up and see everything. Can bathe babies easily and fits neatly under our bathroom vanity. Will be using this for a long time I think 🙂

  45. Emma Draper

    I love that it’s safe to use and it’s a great size so can be dried and popped in a cupboard in between using. Easier to use than a regular baby bath.

  46. Harriet

    The highlight of our day is bathing our wee guy in his schnuggle. He is so happy and smiley. Great for using a little bit of water and keeping him warm. Has totally converted me to baby baths.

  47. Macey

    Highly recommend. My twin girls love sitting up in the water, kicking and enjoying the water. Since changing from a standard baby bath (laying down) bath time is a very happy enjoyable time for everyone. The girls must feel safer sitting up in water, rather than laying down. As a mother of twins, I’d have to say this is my number one product I would recommend. I love that it only requires a couple of liters of water. Very sturdy plastic, easy to clean and store. Cute colour range too. Postage was very quick also.

  48. Jo D

    Product looks great, safe for baby and strong plastic! Can’t wait to use this when bubba arrives 🙂

  49. Mikayla

    Absolutely love the shnuggle bath! Not only does it come in awesome colours but our little ones can sit comfortably by themselves so we can use both hands to wash them. Super practical for all parents as it can be used anywhere even camping as you only need a little bit of water and it’s totally transportable! AND u don’t have to worry about holding your little one so they aren’t slipping under the water. Best bath we have ever come across! Highly recommend to all parents!

  50. Sophie

    Love this bath! I can use it on my own, one hand supporting baby and the other hand washing, without feeling awkward. Perfect for us as we don’t have much storage space, and it doesn’t take much water to fill, our baby loves it!

  51. Michelle

    I wish this bath was around when I had my first baby! This bath essentially allows baby to sit up by herself unassisted, freeing my hands up to get in all those difficult to reach parts such as in the creases under the arms. One hand to lift the baby’s arm, one to wash. The only downside is it’s not so easy to wash baby’s bottom while she’s sitting in the bath.
    My baby is very spilly and windy, so having a sitting up option is super helpful.

  52. Nicolle

    I love this bath. One of the best purchases I’ve made for my baby. I love that they are able to sit freely on their own while giving them a wash, and are still able to kick and have fun. I would definitely highly recommend this bath.

  53. Stacey Kennedy

    I couldn’t even be more thrilled with my purchase, I was “influenced” to do so and so glad I did. It’s a game-changing bath, out of my three boys my newborn has looked and seemed calmer when placed inside a shnuggle bath. Lightweight and portable this bath is something I would gift to other new mums. Very very thrilled and well worth the price!

  54. Maryanne Guest

    Love this bath! I can sit my baby in it and he doesn’t slip under the water, we had a normal baby bath and we always had to hold him the whole time to make sure he didn’t go under the water, but with this bath, we don’t have to! No sore backs for us and a lot more fun for him x
    Also doesn’t take as much water to fill up so it’s quicker and easier to fill.

  55. Sarcha

    Absolutely love this bath my wee man can sit easily without me having to hold him and still kick and splash around.
    So lightweight even when full so perfect for carrying to the sink to empty afterwards.

  56. Jennifer

    Love this bath!! So easy to carry around because it hardly needs any water so we use to bath in the lounge where it’s warm. It safely holds little babies (even our wee premie) and we used it up until he was about 9 months old. Would highly recommend!

  57. Gianna Park (verified owner)

    Best baby bath ever! I got this bath for my one month old baby. I never had the confidence to give my first born a bath alone; I always needed my husband. This bath tub allowed me to bath my baby boy alone. This is the best tub for a little baby that can sit on their own yet. The baby can pretty much sit in there and I don’t have to hold him as I’m bathing him, just hold his head a little. It works for infant through early toddler.
    This bathtub holds the baby securely in place, because it has a steep enough back relative to the large center stump on the tub floor (the stump which goes between the legs). Because of the perfect angle- whether baby is reclining or sitting up- he isn’t slipping or sliding around. The angle, in other words, creates the right amount of hip flexion in either position. My baby is so much happier- he can relax back comfortably. I am obsessed with it and will tell anyone who will listen!
    Hope this helps!!

  58. Twiggy Dwight

    It can be used until a child can climb out of it easily. Also, there is a line in it for maximum water fill. Very handy and helpful bath which can help support the baby to sit while bathing.
