Instead of using an expensive baby bath or placing her baby son in an adult-sized tub, Kayla gets the best of both worlds using this household item.

By putting a clothing basket into the bath tub, Kayla makes life much easier for herself during her baby’s bath time.

She explains that her clothing basket bathing method is great for five different reasons.

Firstly, she says, you can put a towel in the basket along with the baby, and this will “help keep them warm”.

Toys are confined within the basket, so your baby can always grab them easily

She explains: “We put the warm towel over his legs, then constantly pour more warm water over it.”

The second brilliant advantage to keeping the baby in a basket is that any “accidents” can be easily cleaned up, as the basket can simply be lifted out of the tub, without the whole tub getting dirty.

Importantly, she also points out that if the baby is playing with their toys inside the basket, the toys can’t float away.

This way, the baby stays entertained with their toys close to hand. 

Plus, because the basket is small enough for the baby to hold on to the sides, they can sit up, kick, and splash more easily.
