One of the hardest places to make and keep safe is the bathroom. As the littles gain their independence in there, they're naturally more curious and adventurous. The problem is that they're still so little that all of those sharp edges can be dangerous. I did some research looking for one company that had items for the entire bathroom. I came across Dreambaby® (LINK), and didn't need to look any further.
I got the chance to review some of their products, and they're just great!
First I reviewed the Dreambaby® Anti-Slip Mat. It retails at $17.99 (LINK).
Even before I put the mat in the tub, I was impressed. It's made to withstand little tiny feet stomping on it and squirming around on it without being rough or abrasive. It has texture to help avoid slipping, but is smooth enough to be easy-to-clean. Plus, it was cute - Pickle has been learning about coral reefs in preschool this week, so she discussed each of the animals on it in length (taking particular care to inform me that kangaroos don't swim. Good to know.).
I took it up to the bathroom and put it in the tub - it was just the right size for our standard-sized tub in the kids' bathroom. The suction cups were strong, but not so rigid that they didn't grip the bottom of the tub. I started filling up the tub, and purposely made the water too hot - the cute little starfish changed color when the water was too hot! Not only is that a great visual indicator for me, but Pickle loved watching for it to change back to the safe zone. That kept her busy and from climbing all over the bathroom, which is happiness you can't buy.
(Tip - the bath mat isn't on here at this time, but Dreambaby® has videos up for a lot of their products on their YouTube channel here: LINK. Their Facebook page also has a lot of good information and is updated often: LINK.)
I really liked the bath mat, and would definitely recommend it to others. The color changing is my favorite feature, and definitely one I have used.
I also got the chance to test out their Easy-Clean Potty Seat, which retails for $8.99 (LINK).
This is a really great price for a potty seat, so I was excited to check it out. It coordinates with the bath mat, which was adorable! I also noticed upon opening the package that it's small in size - other potty seats that I have seen are a lot wider and thicker, which makes them hard to jam in the diaper bag when you're going out of the house. This is small, but padded enough to be comfortable on little bottoms.
The other two features that were unique to the Dreambaby® seat were both great. First of all, it has handles on the side for the child to grip. These were awesome for Pickle as she was climbing up onto the seat and turning around. I also really like the splash guard in the front - we don't need it yet for Pickle, but it will be wonderful when our little boy Peanut is older, so that we don't get have the firehose effect all over our bathroom.
The last item that I got to test out was the Bath Tub Spout Cover (LINK), which retails for only $2.99.
Again, this is very inexpensive for a faucet cover, so I was excited to try it out. It's inflatable, so it's easy to store when not in use, or to take to a hotel when traveling. It fit our standard-sized spout without any issues. It inflated enough to protect little heads from getting hurt on the faucet, but wasn't obtrusive or garish. The cover was cute, and went with the blues in the other two items.
All in all, I'm excited about these three items! They're cost-effective ways to protect your child in one of the most dangerous rooms in the house, and they all have innovative features that I haven't seen on comparable products. I'm going to be searching Dreambaby's other products (like safety gates, car safety items, and more) to help babyproof now that our little Peanut is more mobile. Great company!
