Assembly and Transitions

Unboxing and Assembly

Thank you for choosing the YouBeBaby bath, we’d love to hear how you enjoy it, please let us know.

Firstly, unpack the box and please check you have all the parts, including the instruction manual. (Click here to view a copy of the manual here.)

We check and double-check everything but if anything arrives broken or missing, please contact us and we will immediately organise a replacement.

You should have three bath sections, two stabilising supports, two plugs, six screws and the instruction manual.

Attach the Stabilising Supports

The only assembly required is the attachment of the stabilising supports using the six screws supplied. For this you will simply need a standard Phillips-head screwdriver (+).

1. Turn the bathtub upside down.

2. Align the stabilising supports and insert the screws.

3. Tighten until the screws are firmly in place, but do not over-tighten.

Done! Your YouBeBaby bath is good to go!

Stage One: Using the Incline

For babies that are new-born to six months the Stage One incline fits perfectly inside the main bathtub. Simply lower it in and it will click snuggly into place.

The tub and the incline component both have trap-proof drains so, with the plug and drain cover, the YouBeBaby bath can be used as a bath or a shower. To fill the bath in Stage One insert the plug and cover and fill to the maximum water mark.

Please note that features and decoration may vary from images here.

Stage Three: Stand and Play Frame

For babies that are able to confidently sit up, the Stage Three Stand and Play frame can be used.

The cleverly unfolds and fastens solidly in to place giving a safe and stable structure for you baby to stand and play.

1. Remove the storage strap.

2. Lift the top of the frame.

3. Fold the supporting arms up from underneath and into position.

4. Push the four supporting arms into place until you hear them click locked. The frame is now ready to attach to the bath.

5. Lower the frame onto the bathtub, aligning it with the fastening positions. There are three on each side and one at each end. Press them into place until you hear them click locked. Stage three is now ready to use.

Bath-Time Instructions

Important First Baths

Firsts baths can be a worry or they can be a special time.

During Stage One your baby can stretch, push and roll on their side or tummy, or simply recline comfortably. As your baby grows they will learn to raise their head, building their core, neck and limb strength.

Please watch our video: Stage One – The First Bath.

Stage One: Freedom to Move

Before use, please read the overview, warnings and notices pages of the user guide (you can download it here).

After inserting the Stage One slope, with the drain cover in place, fill the tub with water to below the ‘MAX’ symbol. Do not overfill the bathtub, this may be dangerous and cause it to leak.

To lower water level lift the edge of the cover to allow water to escape.

Always check the water temperature before placing your baby in the bath. The water temperature should be between 32°C and 38°C (90° to 100° F). For water-play, warmer is generally better.

Ideally, the room should be draft-free and with a temperature between 24°C and 27°C (75° to 80° F).

We recommend soft natural light if possible. Bright overhead lights may irritate babies when reclining. We also suggest calm and quiet for first baths then introducing music over time. 

For comfort and convenience, try swaddle bathing for the first few baths. With time let your baby lie directly in the tub to develop the ability to navigate smooth surfaces early.

After use, drain, rinse and air dry the bath.

Important Notes for All Baths and All Stages

Never place a child under a fixed head shower in event water temperature changes.

When using a hand-shower on a baby always keep a finger in stream of water to monitor temperature. 

Stage Two: Learning to Sit

Stage Two is for babies who are learning to sit-up.

When your baby is able to change positions by themselves and be able to raise and hold their head up for extended periods then they are ready for Stage Two. Babies who can not do this should not be placed into an upright position.

Sitting requires and teaches balance and head control. Babies learn these skills by wobbling and moving. Instability and tipping is normal during this time so a caregiver must be attentive and close at all times to prevent tipping over.

Please watch our video: Stage Two Overview and Use.

Before use, read the overview, warnings and notices pages.

If you are using the bath as a tub insert the plug and fill the tub with water to below the ‘MAX’ symbol. Do not overfill the bathtub, this may be dangerous and cause it to leak.

Always check the water temperature before placing your baby in the bath. The water temperature should be between 32°C and 38°C (90° to 100° F). For water-play, warmer is generally better.

Introduce your baby to Stage Two by seating them crosswise so their back is supported against side of the tub and their feet are pressed against the opposite wall.

This position allows them to use their feet for extra stability. Drape a towel over the tub wall behind your baby’s head if it is too close. If desired you may also use a small towel inside the tub to reduce sliding.

Always be close and ready to catch your baby in the event they start to tip over.

Over time, as your baby gains confidence, place them in the tub sitting lengthwise.

Remember, you can use the YouBeBaby bath as either as a bath, with the plug inserted, or as a shower with the plug removed.

Important Notes for All Baths and All Stages

Unique and Brilliant

Stage Three: Stand and Play

At this stage babies are bigger, more active, mobile, independent and less controllable.  This frees the caregiver to engage more comfortably with less kneeling and bending over while staying out of the splash zone. 

Never again will you have to tell them to sit down or grab for them as they fall.

Stage Three allows for safe natural movement and free play. Babies also develop the navigation skills of being in a bath so the transition to the regular bath or shower may be easier and safer.

Please do watch our video: Stage Three Stand and Play.

Stage Three, from 12 months to two years, is only for babies who are confident and capable sitters.

Before use, read the overview, warnings and notice pages.

If you are using the bath as a tub insert the plug and fill the tub with water to below the ‘MAX’ symbol. Do not overfill the bathtub, this may be dangerous and cause it to leak.

Always check the water temperature before placing your baby in the bath.
The water temperature should be between 32°C and 38°C (90° to 100° F).
For water-play, warmer is generally better.

Check the Stage Three frame is correctly locked and in the fully upright and open position any time a child is inside. 

If providing toys we recommend no more than three at a time and smaller toys that can be grasped with one hand in preference to larger toys.

Stop using the product when child is nearly able to climb out of stage 3.
