I’m pretty sure there weren’t any Bath Dams around when my son was a baby. At least I didn’t see them. And since I turned into an obsessive shopaholic in the last few months of pregnancy, I think I would have found it. The Dam is a plastic insert that fits into your bath and allows you to fill up only a portion of it with water. It normally sells for around £19.99 to £29.99. Which, frankly, is way over priced for a bit of plastic. You can get one at the moment though from Amazon, for a far more reasonable £11.99.
Even at that price, is it worth it? I paid just over a fiver for my baby bath. But I’d have loved one of these. One less thing to clutter up the place for starters. And dead handy for taking about with you when travelling, or even just spending the weekend at the grandparents.
According to the manufacturer, the Baby Bath Dam was developed in the UK. It fits to all standard straight sided baths in seconds and seals in any chosen position - just flex, fit and fill.
