The calendar might show that summer is almost over, but it sure doesn't feel that way. Some parts of the country are breaking heat records. One way to cool off your baby is a nice bath. Babies love baths and it is a great way for you to bond as well. You can keep your baby busy in the tub with cool toys like My First Red Tug Boat. You can also use it as a pool toy. It's fun for babies, but I think its best feature is that it is made right here in the USA from recycled milk jugs.
