FOr my first two kids, we had a baby bath that was a plain, flat tub with a small plug at the bottom. We also bought this sponge like bottom, it was about 3 inches thick with a baby shaped groove in it.

I loved it. I could put the tub in our real bath, put just enough water so that the sponge waswet (like 2-3 inches, and lay the newborn on it. When we were done, just pull the plug and the water drains into the real tub.

We got rid of it after our second son because I never dreamed how hard it would be to find a plain tub!

All the baby tubs are contoured and weird! They have built in hoses, and slings, omg...

For a new born, I just want a flat bottom tub, we were able to find anotehr sponge bottom.

I checked online target, walmart, babies r us...nothing! Why can't I just find a plain tub? Anyone know what I'm talking about?

It IS really hard to find a simple tub!

What about something like this? Home Grown Families: Prince Lionheart Flexi-Bath~With Infant Support~ Review and Giveaway $58 RV

I know what you're talking about, but also haven't seen it for sale.

We use this one, it is contoured and has a sling for newborn use, but it's shallow and has a plug and fits perfectly on my kitchen sink so I don't have to bend much to get baby nice and clean. Amazon.com: The First Year's Infant To Toddler Tub with Sling, Blue: Baby

My sister uses a "bloomin bath" for her baby and loved it, which might appeal more to you? Amazon.com: Blooming Baby Bath Color: Turquoise: Baby

Or, I did find this newborn bath sponge for under $11, but no tub to go with it Amazon.com: Summer Infant Comfy Bath Sponge: Baby

If you have an Ikea, they have plain ones like that there.

I can't stand baby bathtubs. We always use the sponge things in the sink for a few weeks/a month or so like this: Babies R Us Turtle Bath Sponge Cushion - Babies R Us - Babies "R" Us

And then we use this kind until they can sit up: Babies R Us Bath Sling - Babies R Us - Babies "R" Us

Thank you everyone! I continued looking after I posted. I saw the fold up one and was thinking about that. I also saw the turtle sponge one at babies r us. It seems our local store doesnt carry it but the Toys r us does. So we might head over there this week. I'd rather buy in person only because I'm afraid to order it and then it not be what it appeared online. I was trying not to spend too much. Ironically, the one we bought for DS #1 7 years ago, was the cheapy cheapo one because it had no frills!! lol

I figured if worse comes to worse, I will do the sponge in the bottom of our tub without the baby bath. I swear before I know it he will be sitting up and this won't even be an issue! At that point I just stick them in the regular tub!

We had a fancy one with DS and only used it once. I find it easier to just bring baby in the tub with me or DH, or in the sink.

We got a baby spa when I was pregnant with my first. I used it maybe one with him and twice with my daughter. It was a pain. I just put them into the sink with something like this
Summer Infant Mother's Touch Deluxe Baby Bather, Submarine - Walmart.com

Once babies were all clean I rinsed it off and let it dry in the drying rack.

OMG, I was talking to my kids and reading over quickly and read your last line that once the babies were all done you rinsed them off and dried them in the drying rack!!

Anyway, we can't do that sink or I'd rather not. Mainly because our sink is ridiculously shallow. Be bought this house last year and need to get the kitchen done but havent yet. I've never seen a sink this shallow, it sprays water off the bottom when we turn the faucet on. I hate it!!! But I definitely don't want to bath the baby in there, I don't even like rinsing dishes.

And the bathroom sinks are small and a weird shell shaped, I wouldn't be able to use them either...the people before us had odd taste...

Casey, we may not be able to use our sink this time around, either. We are in a new house and it has a divided sink, and I'm not sure the sponge thing will fit. We are still using it though, if it doesn't fit we will just lay it in the bathtub.... baby bathtubs are a pain! lol

I have a funny feeling we will end up doing the same. I want to get a bath, but I forsee some procrastination on continuing to look for one, and the sponge in the tub being used! lol
