For a few months now, I’ve been scouring the internet and local stores for a combo bath and changing table that we can put into our bathroom. If it folded, even better, seeing as our bathroom and laundry room isn’t that big either, and we do still need room for laundry. Also, easier to store, so we are less likely to give it away after we don’t need it anymore. I wasn’t so big on any of the ones I saw online, and anyway, I’ve started to really get annoyed with online shopping.
But voila! Right here in Modiin at the Dr. Baby outlet store, I’ve discovered the Elios, by l. rossi, an Italian company that I’ve never heard of, but apparently has been around for 50 years. Its totally foldable in one piece, has fun colors, and is really sturdy. The bath has built in non-slip pads, although I’ll still probably add a seat for the first little bit. It’s 600 shekels at Dr Baby, and seeing as its probably one of the only big ticket items that we are buying, (other than closets an and a/c unit), I think we can manage it, seeing as there is no shipping :). I like that the top lifts up and stays up for bathing, that there are little storage pockets underneath, and that it has a hose to emtpy the bath back into the big tub. I also think its the perfect height for short people, but we will have to see when I actually have to hold a real baby in the bath.
PS. I hope I’m that thin when my baby is this age. Not likely.
