When we had DS(1) we lived in a flat with only a shower so obviously we used a baby bath but now we have moved to another flat that has a bath,I wonder,is it worth getting a baby bath or just use the normal bath but put baby in a bath support? I know that leaning over the bath will be awkward but I'm not sure,any ideas?
probably one of the best things i was given was an inflatable baby bath - I stuck it next to the kitchen sink - baby was at my height, it was soft - so no fear of bumping baby...saved my back It was great - didn't take too long to fill - Highly recomended
with my first, I bought a baby bath and only used it once, i felt it was awkward and the baby was cold even though the water was warm...so I would just lay a towel down, and basically sponge/cloth bathe him...with a dish of warm water, and I used johnsons disposable wash cloths with my 2nd, again just used a towel to lay him on something soft, and just did sponge baths till baby was a little older and felt safer to wash in the sink, then moved to the bathtub...I did the sponge baths because it kept baby from getting cold, and as soon as I was done with one area I could dry it off. I learned how to do sponge baths in high school though. Maybe this is an option for nervous moms and babys that don't like full on baths.
