So Owen has pretty much outgrown his infant tub. I mean, he still technically can fit in it, but now he likes to kick his legs in the water and ends up hitting the side of the tub, which looks like it hurts. I tried putting him in a bath seat that someone gave us in the regular tub, but he kind of slouches over in it so I don't think he's ready. What do I do in the meantime? The kitchen sink? Where do you all bathe your LO's?

We use this awesome sponge in the big tub - she lays on it. We only fill the big tub with like 2 inches of water.

Arthur stopped using the hand me down infant tub we had (the kind that is supposed to fit newbies all the way to toddlers sitting on one side or the other) at about 3 months. I just put an inch or so of water in our bath tub and throw him in (gently of course ;P ) He loves that he has so much freedom, he can slide from one end to the other, and kicks and splashes up a storm!

Next time we have a baby I don't think I'll bother with the infant tub... we'll do sink, then regular bath!

Brock was in the sink but my DH and I just pass him off in the shower now. It's quick and easy to do. I'm still using the sink got splash time.

We still love the infant tub and sometimes he will shower with hubby. Ill start using the infant seat when he can sit up better.

Sweet! Although I got mine for only $6.00! It really is a snap to use. Then when you're done, you just wring the water out and let it air dry over the tub. I usually replace it every 3-4 months or so.

Just an FYI, I first learned about these when I babysat for kids in my neighborhood 19 years ago!

What about like Kalynn said and just putting an inch of water in the bottom? You could lay him on his back in that and then use your hand to scoop the water and pour it over him to wash him.

Hey when all our kiddos are a little bigger and sitting up unassisted, I saw a great idea on FB:

The basket helps keep the toys from floating out of baby's reach.

We've always used this seat from BRU..it reclines/adjusts 2 or 3 notches for their different stages.

Lilah stopped using the infant bath around 2 or 2 1/2 months I think. Since then, I just lie her on her back in the big tub, with a little bit of water (not so deep that her ears are in, it's really just a couple inches of water), and she kicks and LOVES it.

This is what we have. I normally bathe with Claire...it makes it much easier when she's in this seat. I just plop her down, wash my hair while she splashes around and kicks her feet, then I grab her and put her in my lap and suds her up.

The only thing that I'm not a big fan of about this seat is that she's so wiggly/kicky now, and she slides down pretty easily. I just have to keep a really close eye/hand on her so she doesn't squirm herself off the seat.

I actually started doing this when we were on vacation and didn't have his infant tub with me and he loves me! It seems easier on me too so this is how ive continued to bathe him at home.

When we do bathe him (rarely-- we wash his bottom half daily in the sink and I sort of use cotton balls with witch hazel for the neck, etc) I just fill up the tub and get in with him, and my husband helps wash him. We use the kitchen sink sometimes, too.
