I know some people just give them a shower when they are taking a shower, some moms just use sinks, some use specific bathtubs...What will you be using? Provide a pic or link if you can.

What type of wash will you be using?

I was thinking about getting this:
http://www.amazon.com/PRI-Infant-Bat...I3PRFON8IKV3TD

So if I wanted to put her in the sink, or big bathtub I could. I could also take a bath with her and have her in this so she is right with me but I can take my hands off her.

I also was thinking about this:
http://www.amazon.com/Boon-Naked-Col...s=boon+bathtub

because you can leave one side higher and lower the other side to keep their head out of the water. It also folds flat and hangs up.

I am using BabyGanics all natural products as my friend got me that. I also am going to switch all out soap over to Dr. Bronner's. I am only using natural products clear of chemicals and parabens. No Johnson and Johnson here!

I found this baby bather at Wal-mart on clearance, so I picked it up. I like that it folds up when not in use, because we are very tight on space right now and there's just nowhere to put a big baby bathtub like we had with DD. It just sits in the tub. If it doesn't really work out then I won't feel bad since I only spent $7 on it.

The soap we got is from a Canadian company called Bio-Spectra and they're pretty amazing. All of their products are hypo-allergenic, carcinogen free and certified eco-friendly. They even make bio-degradable disposable diapers that only cost a tiny bit more than regular diapers.

I had this at 1st with dd and loved it! I will probably get it again for the beginning then get the rubber ducky tub

I also will probably have dh hand me one at a time and I will wash them while I am in the shower once they get a little bigger.

With my oldest we just used the giant sponge mat that you put in the tub (do they even still make them? lol) and when my youngest we had a simple molded plastic baby tub. I took both of them in the shower with me at times, but it always made me a little nervous ... they get slippery! I'm honestly not even sure what we'll do this time around. That's one of the things I hadn't really thought about yet =\

probably baby bath until I heal from surgery and then shower or get in the bath with him/her.


I will use this:


Unscented mild organic pure Castile baby soap.

It depends on what he likes and what kind of delivery I have. With DD I just got into the bathtub and we took nice deep baths together. I loved it. But I wasn't able to do that right away because of my c-section incision. This time I don't know if that'll work because of the whole two kids thing. I don't really want to buy any special equipment so we'll just try the kitchen sink first. If he hates that we'll probably get one of those summer infant bathers like in the other posts, because it's cheap and I hate those giant plastic tubs.

I have this one on my registry but I doubt anyone will get it for us and I don't want to spend the money on it.

We'll just use California Baby wash.

We have a shower but no tub. I don't like showering with small babies, they get so darn slippery. So when we give baby a bath it will be in the kitchen sink or in our sauna (traditional Finnish sauna). I don't like to bathe a small baby very often anyway, just wash hands, face, butt as needed and full bath maybe once a week.

I only take showers. I hate baths! I'd like a small bather that folds. I'll probably just use the kitchen sink. Depends on what she likes most, I suppose. I'll probably use a hypo-allergenic wash for a while. I'm planning on trying lavender scented lotion or oil for bedtime, though, and maybe making bath time a part of bedtime. We'll see.

I am going to use a baby bath in the kitchen sink. It is just a standard baby tub that someone at work passed on to me. For baby wash, for now we have Burts Bees baby wash, but I am still looking for natural products that don't test on animals. I'm trying to find options that are less expensive/easy to acquire/good company, etc etc.

Until his cord falls off I will use a bowl with soapy water and wipe him down. Then he will start using a newborn-toddler tub that will sit in the big tub. He will use that until he can sit up on his own then go into the big tub.
Ours is white/blue though.

CJ's BUTTer has a lavender/tea tree scented ointment that's not only great for diaper rashes, but works really well for baby massage. DD loves it and it totally relaxes her before bedtime. I even use it on my belly. It's expensive but it lasts forever and is totally worth the $$.

I usually just brought my boys into the shower with me, or DH did. Neither of us ever dropped a baby! We'll probably just use the sink if baby needs a bath and we're not ready to get in the shower, we also don't have a tub. My second DS started breaking out with an eczema rash when he was about 6 months old and my pedi told me babies and children really don't NEED to be washed with soap in the bath, so I stopped, with both my kiddos and he stopped having breakouts. I will use a rag to rub of sticky messes. I definitely plan on using a soft bristle brush on my LO's head, my first DS got a good layer of dead skin built up on his head that took forever to brush out.

I plan to use a baby bath tub with one of those mesh seats. For the most part, I don't use soap/shampoo with baby...I just rinse with water. A couple of times/week I will use Aveeno baby. I just don't think they get dirty enough to warrant using product every day, but I like to do baths every day for the routine.

We have one of those folding bath sling things. They are great! We put it in our kitchen sink, which is a big farmhouse sink. Once he grows out of the seat and can sit up well, we'll just put him in the kitchen sink
