We had a plastic tub for our daughter and are reusing it for baby. its a 4Moms tub, dirty water drains out, while clean water is always filtering in, and theres a built in thermometer that will sound an alarm if the water is too hot. i seriously LOVE that tub.

When dd was a newborn, for the first few weeks I would put some water in the sink and lay a folded towel right beside the sink, and I would lay her on it and wrap my arm around her and under her head to support. I would use a baby wash cloth to wash/rinse her and her hair. When she got to where she was moving too much, I then got a baby bath tub for her, just a cheapie from walmart.

While DS was a newborn we just washed him in the kitchen sink on a towel to prevent slipping. Once he was strong enough to be able to sit reclined comfortably, we switched to a baby tub. The one I got has an infant insert, and then it can be removed for bigger babies that can sit up on their own. Worked perfectly!

With my son we had a bath bucket from mothercare. It was a little strange using it the first few times but after it was great. He was able to be covered in water to stop him from getting cold & it really helped to bring up his wind. X

I've evolved from plastic tub to mesh seat to now I just lay a hand towel in the bottom of the tub, put about an inch of water in the tub, and lay them on the towel. We've always had pretty small bathrooms and having the extra hardware of a tub or mesh seat is a hassle. The towel thing works just fine.

Kitchen sink would be a lot easier for sure unfortunately ours is tiny and our kitchen has no heating

Unless someone gifts me a tub, I plan on using the kitchen sink also, I just don't want the storage of a baby tub. But if someone gives me one I will gladly try it out.
