Fisher Price Calming Waters Vibrating Tub – Frugal Novice

Fisher Price Calming Waters Vibrating Tub

Fisher Price is a brand that I’m sure most people are familiar with, whether they have kids or not. I think most of us can probably remember a Fisher Price toy we played with a child – it’s been around for a long time, and it’s a brand I associate with quality. Of course, they don’t just make toys – they also have great baby gear.

We’ve been keeping an eye out for a good infant tub to use this time around. I knew I wanted one with a sling in it because it makes it comfortable for the baby – and easy to bathe in. I discovered the Calming Waters Vibrating Tub, and knew it sounded like one we’d love.

This tub has all of the features we loved about our last Fisher Price tub – and more. The most noticeable of all the features is the vibration. It’s something we all know is soothing to babies, which is why it’s included in so many infant rockers, bouncy seats, and swings. So it makes sense to have it in the tub, too, to help babies relax.

Aside from the vibration, this tub is still top of the line and has a lot of smart features. Another of my favorites is the hook that they’ve attached, making it easy to hang out of the way. I love this because that was one of my biggest pet peeves with our old tub – where to put it when it’s not in use.

It also includes a (removable) sling and headrest, allowing you to make the tub extra comfortable for newborns, but easy to modify for older babies to sit in.

There’s a stopper in the tub too, so even when you want to stop using the sling it’s easy for your baby to recline in the tub without slipping. It’s removable too, but I can see using it for quite a while until our baby is stable at sitting up.

The tub fits well in most single and double sinks, and of course you can use it in an empty tub, too. It has a drain plug to make it easy to drain. I can’t see any negatives about this tub! I love that it’s nice and neutral but still stylish – it’ll fit in well with any bathroom decor. The tub retails for $42.99, which is just $10-$12 more than other Fisher Price tubs without the vibrating feature. This would be great to add to your registry or perfect for a shower gift!
