Summer Infant Lil' Luxuries Whirlpool Tub
Bath time can be a luxurious experience for baby at any stage. This tub comes with a plush newborn sling to comfortably prop baby in the sink or bathroom tub. Once he’s older, you can turn on the jets; this tub actually becomes a whirlpool. And when he outgrows it, detach the shower unit to use in your own tub. $65, BabiesRUs.com

Boon Naked Collapsible Baby Bathtub
This trendy little tub is super-simple and super-convenient. It expands to accommodate both newborns and toddlers, and collapses for easy (hanging) storage. $60, Giggle.com

4moms Infant Tub
The most high-tech tub out there, the 4moms tub turns bath time into a science. Sure, the elbow test is one way to gauge temperature, but the color-coded digital thermometer lets you know when the water is just right. A side drain continuously filters dirty water out while a clean water reservoir lets the good stuff flow in. $50, Shop4Moms.com

Puj Soft Infant Bath Tub
When it’s hanging flat on your wall or shower, it’s hard to tell this one-inch-thick piece of foam is a tub at all. Easily fold it into a cradle shape for an instant kitchen sink bathtub. $45, BabiesRUs.com

Fisher-Price Sling 'n Seat Tub
This four-in-one tub really does grow with baby. A mesh insert cradles newborns in just the right amount of water, while a “baby stopper” keeps infants from slipping and sliding, and helps older babies sit upright. Take it out when baby’s ready to play and sit up independently. $40, BabiesRUs.com

Munchkin ComforTempt Infant Bather

Made to sit on your countertop or in your bathtub, the Munchkin tub is different in that a warm water reservoir gives you the option of keeping baby warm with radiant heat as well as  direct water contact. And the non-slip, reclining design lets you check off comfort and safety. $36, Target.com
