One of the most daunting things about making the switch from travelling either solo or as a couple to travelling as a family with a baby is the number of extra items required – and one such item is a bathtub.

Thankfully, there are a number of portable and inflatable bathtubs available on the market that make travelling with a baby bathtub slightly less daunting.

When travelling internationally it’s hard to warrant using the valuable space and weight in our luggage on a travel baby bath. Instead, we often use the regular tub, a (thoroughly cleaned) kitchen sink or a bathroom sink.
