Why Trust Us

We’ve been rating and reviewing baby bathtubs, slings and seats since 2005. In addition to hands on testing with lots of slippery babies, we have combed the research about reliability, cleanability and efficiency. We also evaluate consumer reviews posted online, as well as our own message boards.

Here’s another key point: we don’t take money from the brands we review. No free samples, no sponsors, no “partnerships.” Baby Bargains is your independent and unbiased source for expert baby gear reviews. We’ve been writing and reviewing baby gear since 1994. Yes, that long!

How we picked a winner

We evaluate baby bathtubs with inspections and try-outs with real babies. We also gather significant reader feedback (our book, Baby Bargains has over 1 million copies in print), tracking bathtubs on quality and durability. Besides interviewing parents, we also regularly talk with retailers to see which brands are most trustworthy and other key quality metrics.
