I know it's super early, but I was trolling the baby aisles at Target this morning.

Did anyone have an infant tub they loved?

I had the big, clunky one with the sling both times.
I think I want to try something different. Possibly one of those sponges or the sling seats.

Please share what you have used!

We used the Fisher-Price Whale of a Tub. It is too big for the sink, but we used it up on the counter until she was bigger and put it inside the regular tub. She loved it.

I just had the plastic recliner thing that sat on the counter, then we moved to sink when they could sit. Then to bath when they were too big for that.
We had the sponge thing that they lay on in the tub, but they hated it.

I didn't know there were lots of options! Oh this is fun fun fun stuff!!!

This is exactly what we did. It was so easy on my back and convenient whether I gave her spunge baths or a wash down. This is the one I had. I loved it.

We later switched to an inflatable tub when she was about 6 months old, which we would basically place inside our bath tub...this had a heat indicator I think which would let us know if the water is too hot.

We used the sink until he could sit up. Then he started showering with DH.

I had one that had a little reservoir on the back with a sprayer that worked by pumping it up with air and then it would spray water gently over baby with a handheld sprayer. It seemed like it would have been really nice, but I never ended up using it, even once. What worked for us was for me to put DS in a bouncy seat next to the shower while I was in there, and then once I had taken my shower, I would pick him up and wash him in my arms and rinse him off right in the water stream of the shower. Once he could sit up, I would just put him right on the floor of the shower while I took my shower and then would wash him up after. He loved sitting there playing with toys and the shower spray never bothered him.

I do like the look of the tummy tubs though. Those are the ones that baby sits on their bottom of a little pail looking thing with their legs curled up and you just wash them from the top down.

I almost forgot, I also loved taking a bath with my son too. I would put him in the bouncy chair, then I would get in the tub, soap up, rinse off and then bring him into the tub with me. It was so fun to bring him all the way into the water and support his head and let him "swim" around. When he was a newborn, I could see the look of relaxation and wonder on his face as his little arms and legs splayed out and he paddled around. We both loved it!

Yeah I noticesd those too just now while I was trying to find a link for the one I used. Those are adorable...but not sure how practical they would be? Will the baby fit in them after say 4 months? Also when they are newborns I am sure we can't use those right?

We used a little mesh one for the first 2 weeks or so until my incision was healed enough that I could take baby in the bath with me.

I HATE baby tubs. They bathe in the sink until they're too big, then they get the real tub. And they shower with me, too.

Here ya go!

I don't really know how it is all that different from a regular bucket. Maybe it is smoother on the bottom? I know it has anti-skid thingies on the bottom. It also says you can use it with babies up to 35 pounds, so I would assume up to about a year at least. I won't be getting one, but they are intriguing.

I think I have the Safety 1st tub--blue with a teal mesh sling. I liked it. Fit in the sink and had a stopper to drain it. The sling was nice and we used it without the sling for few months and then I moved her to the regular tub around 5-6 months.

I was looking at the first one you linked at target today.
I wonder if that would fit in the kitchen sink?
