It's Things I Love Thursday again - where did the week go? I feel like I haven't gotten anything done this week!
So what do I love this week? Good question - I had to dig a bit for this one. I love, though Baby has just outgrown, the Munchkin inflatable duck infant bathtub.
Baby has always been kind of into ducks - we have a bunch of ducks that live in the ponds in our neighborhood, and he always enjoys visiting them - so when I spotted this inflatable tub at Target one day as he was outgrowing getting bathed in the sink in his infant bathtub, it was a perfect fit. Husband blew it up, and we inserted Baby in it that very night. He loved it. He started to enjoy bathtime in "Duckie" as we called it in our house. We would go into the bathroom for something else altogether, whether it be a hairbrush or a tissue, and he would see Duckie, and point at it or grunt at it and smile. I'm so sad to have to retire it, but as of late, Baby has gotten awfully grumpy about bathtime, and we realized it's because he's just grown too long to be comfortable in Duckie.
I have lots of fond memories of Duckie, but the practicality of it was also very appealing. It has grippers on the bottom, so it doesn't slide around. It has a water temperature gauge (i.e. "hot") though I tend to never trust those things and use my own, but this one seemed pretty reliable. The duck head seemed pretty comfy for Baby to rest his own head on. The duck bill would quack, when pressed, which always gave Baby the giggles. I definitely give this product an A+ (and I'm totally not being paid to say that). This is one of those baby products that I recommend to people all the time. It's truly a good one. Plus, mine came with this adorable bumper sticker that says "I love my munchkin" that I put on my computer (because I'm not a bumper sticker kind of person). The little sticker is dear to my heart because we've called Baby "Munchkin" as a term of endearment from when he was first born.
