FAQ

Babydam FAQ

  • Will BabyDam fit my bath?

    BabyDam is designed to fit in any standard sized, UK/EURO household bath with a non textured surface.

  • Can I Use My BabyDam at either end of the bath?

    Yes. BabyDam can be fitted at any point along a standard straight-sided bath. You can fill it with a shower head if you are using it at the non-tap end of the bath.

  • If my bath is wet, can I still fit the BabyDam?

    Yes. You have to wet the suction pads thoroughly for it to stick to the bath anyway, so this will not affect its fitting.

  • I have wet the suction pads but it is still not forming a watertight seal. Does this mean my BabyDam is faulty?

    No, there must be a problem in the fitting. For ease, please click here to see the video of how to fit BabyDam correctly.

    You need to wet the suction pads thoroughly and push down firmly and check the seal round the rubber edging to ensure a watertight seal.

    Take a look at our Fitting page for further guidance.

  • I just can’t get the BabyDam to fit and I have followed the instructions. I also have a standard sized bath with a non textured bottom.

    If you are still experiencing issues with fitting the BabyDam, please email us photos of how you are fitting the BabyDam to info@babydam.com. We can then provide further assistance.

  • How do I know how much water to fill the bath with?

    With a newborn it is important to fill it with water to just above the newborn baby’s shoulders to keep them warm. Once your child is able to sit up, the bath can be filled to a higher depth by fitting one of the plugs supplied into the safety porthole.

    There is a clear mark on the BabyDam for the recommended maximum water depth to help you.

  • Can the BabyDam be used for pets?

    Yes. The BabyDam can also be used to bathe small pets very effectively.

  • Can the BabyDam be used with newborn babies?

    Yes. The BabyDam can be used with young babies from the outset with no need to buy a traditional baby bath. It is the only baby bath that grows with your baby, it can be moved up the bath and positioned as they grow accordingly.
