Bath time is always more fun when you know your child is safe. A toddler is like the energizer bunny; they’re constantly on the move, filled with the world’s energy, and never seem to stop. Bath time is not any different.
While my husband was giving Michael a bath one evening, he slipped and fell backwards almost hitting his head on the faucet; luckily, my husband caught him before he fell. At that moment, I knew I had to find a solution to cover the faucet before an incident like that happened again.
I found the SkipHop Moby Bath Spout and it was just what I was looking for. It’s designed to fit any faucet with adjustable straps so it’s sturdy and won’t fall off. Unlike other faucet covers I came across which are bulky, complicated, splash water around, this one is made of tough rubber that protects the baby, especially if they accidentally bump their head. It also has two straps (the whale’s fins) that are adjustable: simply pull the straps and it will tighten around the faucet so it doesn’t fall off. The cute little tail also acts as a hook incase you decide to hang it when not in use; I personally keep it on the faucet since it’s so darn cute. It is also PVC and Phthalate free, and if you really want to clean it between uses, you can stick it in the dishwasher for a squeaky clean Moby Whale. Yup, the dishwasher.
At only $13.00 it won’t break the bank, and you know your child is safe while in the tub. I just wish I knew about this sooner.
The SkipHop Moby collection also has other items that are very useful during bath time. I also personally love the Moby Waterfall Bath Rinser which has a rubber tip and makes it easy to rinse baby’s head without getting water in their eyes and ears. Simply, place the rubber tip up against the baby’s hairline and rinse their hair. You’ll be surprised at the amount of water the rinser can hold. At first, I was skeptical about the size, but after using it once during bath time, I realized it was perfect and just what I needed.
After seeing me use the rinser on him several times, Michael now tries to pour water on himself, which is pretty good since he’s learning to be independent, and maybe try to bathe himself. Sure, he gets the water everywhere, but it’s a learning process which I don’t mind at all. Anything that makes bath time more enjoyable for toddlers is worth the investment; especially if it’s keeping them safe.
Skip Hop also has the bath stopper (which I do not have yet) and a bath mat that has suctions on the bottom to provide a non-slip grip at the bottom of the tub (I do plan on getting eventually). I personally just love the theme of the product line. It’s makes bath time so much more fun for him, and adds character to the bathroom. Everyone who enters the bathroom knows that this is “Michael’s Bathroom”.
Give Moby a try. It won’t let you down, I promise. 🙂
Happy Bath time,
