It has been getting more difficult to bath LO on her bath chair because she is so squirmy. I was thinking of trying to give her a bath without it. Thought of putting about 2 inches of water (or is this too much) in the tub and holding her in sitting position and letting her play a bit while I bathe her. But I was wondering about a couple of things. If I give her a toy it most likely would end up in her mouth is this safe? I am wanting to stop using her chair because she is constantly trying to get onto her side and squirms so much it is getting more and more difficult to keep her in it. Is there a bath seat that is kind of like the bumbo that I can set her in during her bath that would give me free hands to bath her? What do you all do for bathing?
When Fran got too wriggly for her bath seat we put a couple of inches in the bottom and laid her down so she could still kick and splash, then when she could sit unaided we started sitting her up and let her have toys to play with.
There are seats they can sit upright in but most aren't suitable until they can sit unaided - and I found it pointless putting her in one at that stage x
Thanks for the tip. I will try laying her down in the bath. Maybe put a small towel under head to make a bit more comfortable. Should be fun to see what she does with the water since whe have never sat her in it before. Always have poured on her from a cup.
Yes I laid a towel flat on the bottom for her to lie on so she wouldn't slip around xxx When she was in her bath seat we filled it up enough so she could kick her legs in it and splash her fingers, but she'd never been fully immersed. She loved it though
We use the Primo Eurobath tub for our son and I absolutely love it. You can fill it as much or little as you like, and the plastic is molded so that they can recline in the water but it keeps them from completely submerging or rolling over. You can use it for small babies - we starting giving our son a bath in it when he was only a few days old.
