BabyDam – Mum’s big helper
When you become a new mum, you enter a world of constant feeding, washing and changing nappies, and not much sleep! It's an expensive business too; recent research suggests that your baby's first year comes with a £5000 price tag.
So products that will save you time and money are a lifesaver. And if they do their bit for the environment too, it's even better.
The BabyDam saves you money, time and energy
Your money, time and energy saver
Bath time is one of those precious moments when you get to spend quality time with your baby. But running a full bath for a little one can be a chore and a waste of water. Enter the BabyDam bathwater barrier that turns a full-size bath into a junior-size one, saving you valuable minutes in your hectic schedule and halving the amount of water you use.
Eco mums will welcome the BabyDam with open arms. According to UK government figures, the average person uses 150 litres of water a day and this needs to come down.
This innovative product will reduce the volume of your baby's bathwater from 20 litres to around 10 litres a day. If you tot up the figures, using a BabyDam bathwater barrier could reduce the amount of water you use each year by over three and a half thousand litres! And what's more, it will save energy and save you money by reducing the amount of water you heat.
Seal off a section of your bath to create a miniature tub
Turns your family bath into a baby bath
This handy gadget works by sealing off a section of your bath and creating a miniature tub, without the need for a separate baby bath. Fitted and removed in a matter of seconds, the flexible barrier slides into the bath and, using suction pads, forms a watertight seal to hold the bathwater back.
Taking the barrier out is simple too - just pull the tabs on the suction pads and the barrier comes away from the bath.
Deborah and Graham Perry, parents and designers say: "The BabyDam bathwater barrier has been created as a practical, time-saving product that can turn your family bath into a baby bath in seconds, and, as it lasts from newborn to toddler, it's a product that will not only save time for new parents, but also money."
The BabyDam bathwater barrier costs £27.50 including post and packing and is available to buy from www.babydam.com
