Why not a normal bucket
Normal buckets don’t have an anti-skid bottom. The bottom is not curved and therefore does not give the baby any support
Babies discover their new world by touching with their hands and tasting with their mouth. The pigments in plastic buckets will most likely contain toxic elements as normal buckets aren’t ment for bathing babies
You can view on your baby from all sides because of transparent material of original TummyTub®
The handle of the bucket can easily hurt the fingers of the baby. It also does brings an extra risk as an older brother or sister could – by holding it –pull the bucket from the table
Normal buckets are too low and narrow. The waterlevel is therefore also too low and the children can’t stay warm. Apart from that mother and child are hindered in their movements. However simply using a bigger bucket doesn’t give the child the support and a comfortable sitting position
A normal bucket would never have the TÜV and BSI approval for babybathing
