What kind of baby bath do you have, if you have one? If not, how do you bathe baby?

I am DYING to give stinky Mallory a real bath lol so it is hot on my mind. These sponge baths just aren't cutting it lol.

I have a plain old little white tub that I have had for all four babies. Bella gets stinky underarms and under her neck if I don't give her an actual bath because the spongebaths just dont cut it so even when she had her umbilibal cord stump she was getting baths in there. I will use that thing as long as I can because we have a deep tub and it kills my back trying to wash a baby in it.

We have one of those mesh things with the metal stand...not sure what they're called, but it works great. It's by far the best thing I've used for any of the kids. I love that she doesn't slip and slide on it like they do on the plastic tubs.

We just have some random plastic one my son found in the dumpster....lol We left our old one behind when we moved (we weren't planning on more children). I loved our old one, it was an old style Fisher-Price and it was awesome.

Once he can sit on his own he will transition to sink baths, then when he is big enough to assist in washing himself he will move on to the big boy tub

We have this one

The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe Newborn-to-Toddler Tub - Learning Curve - Babies "R" Us

I love it! It's the only tub that I've used, but it works great for us. Because of the little hammock thing, I was able to give them almost full baths even with the cord still on.

We have a chair thingy that i put in the sink as it's easier to stand than sit. I don't submerge her in water - I really just pour it over her and she LOVES it!

I have a regular fisher-price baby bathtub, but I haven't used it. I just take him in the shower with me, he seems to prefer it to being totally submerged, and it's a lot quicker.

We have the typical blue tub that goes over the kichen sink. I like it and Carson doesnt seem to mind it.

We have one of the ones that folds up to save space. I hate it, **** thing leaks like it's cool.

As far as baths, for now just every other night. Once he gets a bit older and his skin isn't so sensitive, he will get a bath every night. I'm just glad to finally be able to bathe him! It took forever for his belly button to heal!

I have the blue one that goes over the sink too. I can't wait to use it! For now, I lay towels on the counter and lay that mesh thing on the frame and sponge bathe her. I only bathe her like 2 times a week though because she hates it like that.

We use this bath seat, and I love it. I stick it in the kitchen sink and it folds up flat. For Anna I used a regular baby tub with a sling, but so far I like this one so much more.

we just have a regular plastic infant toddler tub from fisher price. dd doesnt seem to like it much. i bathed her in our sink with a few towels around her before we got the tub and she loved that, she also loves having her hair washed if that is the only part of her that is wet. I think she doesnt like the tub because the water barely covers her there is just a little bit in there and she gets cold.

I just have a simple plastic one. It does the job, but I don't like how he slides around in it if I'm not holding him,

We have this one...

I like it just fine and so did Ari. However Nate (DH) and Zev don't like it.

I have this one, and the one crystal_lynn has. He hates them both so I end up holding him in my lap and sponge bathing him... I get soaked and he still screams but it works a little better.
