What can a laundry basket do in a bath? No, it's not for laundry or even household cleaning.
It is simply to make the bath time of young children even more enjoyable!
If you have a child under 2 years of age (depending on his or her body size), place a laundry basket in the bath and sit the child there: the holes in the basket will let the water circulate. The basket will contain as much water as the rest of the bath, but the child will be more stable in the basket than he or she would be in the bath.

Not only is the basket less slippery under the buttocks, but also the toys will not float to the other end of the bath, they will be close at hand, which avoids many small frustrations and risks of accident that come with it.
This tip is great for young children who are afraid of water: the basket reduces the apparent surface of the water and can reassure the child who will feel safer.
WARNING: You must watch the child at all times! The child may fall under the water and drown even if he is sitting in a laundry basket.
