4moms Baby Bath Tub Review

An innovative baby bathtub for your baby, the 4moms Baby Bath Tub in white drains dirty water, and at the same time constantly replaces the old water with clean.

Another unique feature that 4moms, Baby Bath Tub is able to do is gauge the water temperature to ensure that the water temperature is just right for your baby’s very delicate skin.

  • Color-coded digital thermometer. This thermometer is able to gauge the temperature of the water that pours into the screen. Color-coded temperature will tell you if the water is too hot or too cold. Red for hot, Blue for cold and Green for the perfect temperature.
