Puj Tub vs Puj Flyte Bath Tub Reviews

Many years ago babies were bathed in the kitchen sink. After all, it made sense, it was the right height for mom so that she wasn’t hunched over the tub and it was small enough to wash the baby safely and securely.

With the invention of the baby baths, the kitchen sink was thrown aside as an old fashioned solution to a common problem. However, it recent years the invention of various products has brought back the use of the kitchen sink in order to wash your baby.

Bath time is supposed to be a fun experience for mom and baby. It is supposed to promote a bonding time for both. However, the anxiety and fear around bathing a newborn baby, especially as a first time parent can be overpowering. Luckily these days there are many great products available to help reduce the stress of this task and ensure that parents enjoy and bond with their baby during bathtime.

I am going to take a look at two of the alternative baby baths that are currently on the market. These are the Puj Tub and the Puj Flyte.

Puj Tub

The Puj Tub is said to help you have a bonding experience with your baby. It offers the opportunity for a hands-free bathtime, allowing parents to be hands-on with their baby in a relaxing and enjoyable way.

So, How Does It Work?

The Puj Tub is made from a soft foam that folds and can fit almost any sink. The idea is that the foam cradles and protects your baby while bathing. The foam protects their delicate skin from the cold hard sink and cradles them ensuring that they feel secure at all times.

The Puj Tub comes as a flat piece of foam with cutouts. Once it is unpacked you would need to push the sides gently together so that the bottom fan shape comes together to form a seat, this is where your baby will be seated. The seat can be hung up to dry flat which is a great design feature.

What is it made from?

the Puj Tub is made from a soft flexible, non-slip material. Due to its unique design, it will flex to fit a variety of sinks of differing shapes and sizes.

The Puj Tub is easy to clean with soap and water and it is also mold and mildew resistant. This is due to the fact that the tub is made from closed-cell foam, so it doesn’t absorb water. It is also free from PVC and BPA material.

What do you get in the box?

It is the one piece Puj Tub that you receive in the box. There are no other parts required.

Puj Tub Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Comfortable for a young baby
  • Great for use after c-section

So, How does it work?

The Puj flute works in a very similar way to the original Puj Tub except that it is even simpler to use. You simply unpack your Puj Flyte and it is ready to use, no need for any construction or foaming of the seat position.

It is quick and simple while still providing you with the same benefits of use. Providing a safe cradling feeling for your baby, while allowing parents a hands-free bathing experience. The seat can still be hung up to dry and folds for easy storage. It also has some grip and texture on the rear of the tub to prevent sliding in your sink.

What is it made from?

The Puj Flyte is made from a durable and lightweight material. It is mold and mildew resistant the same as the original Puj Tub. It is still free from BPA, PVC, and phthalates.

What do you get in the box?

It is a simple box to unpack as it will only include one piece of equipment and that will be the Puj Flyte.

Puj Flyte Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Folds for easy storage and travel
  • Works well for premature babies
  • Easy to clean

Puj Flyte Cons

  • Issues with fitting in certain sinks
  • Baby was uncomfortable

The Main Differences Between Puj Tub vs Puj Flyte

There are not many differences between these two products. The Puj Flyte came about as it became apparent that many parents were using their Puj Tub on the move. Whether this was traveling or at a relatives’ house. Unfortunately, the Puj Tub is not as compact as the Flyte and would not fit in hand luggage.

Both are designed to bit a variety of sinks although this is not the case. The Puj Tub only fits certain sinks. It will not fit a wide sink as it required the sink to support it so that it fits securely. The Puj tub can also fit a sink that is 9 inches deep while the Flyte can only fit a sink that is 6 inches deep.

The Puj Flyte is smaller and more compact than the Puj Tub, It also has a simpler design and does not need to be constructed.

The Puj Tub can be dried flat, unlike the Puj Flyte.

FAQ Puj Tub vs Puj Flyte

Would the Puj tub work in a farm/apron sink?

The Puj Tub works better in sinks that are around 16 x 12 inches and at least 6.5 inches deep. If the sink is over 20 inches it will be too large for the Puj Tub as it requires the support of the sink itself.

Is the Puj Flyte made from the same material as the other Puj Tub?

The Flyte is made from the same material as the Tub but the Flyte has a higher density. This is in order for it to withstand travel and portability.

Do you need to fill the tub with water then put the baby in or do you need to keep the faucet running?

The Puj Tub will only hold a few ounces of water but they are designed for a continuous flow of water. As a parent, I can understand that you would not be comfortable leaving a running faucet over your baby, due to the possible issues of scalding. Many parents have suggested keeping a pitcher of warm water next to the sink to use as an alternative to the running faucet.

How long can you use the Flyte for?

The Flyte is intended to be used from 0-6 months and up to 17 pounds in weight.
