Spouting Off

Eleanor loves taking baths in our big blue tub, but we worry when her head gets too close to the spout. We needed a cover, and we figured we may as well try to find one that looked good. After all, there isn’t anything we can do about that surrounding tile and bad grout job (short of a full reno), but at least we can have something cute to distract us from it.

Whale Bathtub Spout

The Moby bath spout cover matches our tub perfectly, and it’s pretty darn adorable. Oh, but I should say it’s not the only cute thing in there to distract us… Especially when Eleanor makes her little scrunchy face.

    We have the same spout cover and while it’s cute, it won’t stay put for us. Tighten it as much as you like, it constantly falls off. (And when it doesn’t *fall* off, our son–who’s a good bit older than your daughter, granted–pulls it off to play with his other bathtoys.)

    I’ve been very disappointed with it.

    The Boon Flo (which we have in our other bathroom) isn’t nearly as cute, but it stays in place.

    Ahh–I just noticed you have the pull plug on top! I bet that keeps the whale in place. Our tub is a tub only–no shower, no pull plug.

    One thing I did when my girls were E’s size was to put the IKEA babybath, which is quite generous and deep, into the tub. Then she was more centered in the bath, and I was able to use less water, filling only the babybath.

    Extreme cuteness aside…

    I have seen several how-to articles on reglazing bathroom tile. I think your blue tub would look lovely with some fresh white tile to go with it. Might be worth looking into.

    Oh how adorable. I got a little Octopus where the water comes out of the four tentacles (the other four are all curled up.) The only problem with mine is that there was no hole in the top for the shower knob. A little surgery with a knife fixed it. The adorable Octopus is from Crayola, and they had little water color fizzers with it. Too cute.

    Quick and easy fix for your tub & tile issues. We used it at our old house, it woked wonderfully. Much cheaper than ripping it out. Good luck!

    That is the cutest little face I’ve ever seen! If I had a baby and she made that face that pic would be on display in my living room until she’s 30 lol
