Hey guys, just a question for anyone out there who have already had children, Do I need to buy a baby bath tub??? I am strugling to think where I will put it to bath the LO and the best place I keep coming up with is to put the darn thing in the actual tub!!! I don't have a lot of counterspace at the moment and we don't have a kitchen table, we have a sorta couter top thing that doubles as a eating/bar space, but it isn't very wide and I would worry about the bath falling off (as it is open on both sides) I was telling hubby that we would have to put it in the tub to be safe, but then he said, why do we need one then??? why not just put her bath chair thingy right in the tub. I am guessing that the reason for having the little portable baby bath is that it would be a lot easier on your back while bathing the baby etc, and may also be more convienent if you have it placed on a counter next to all her bath things, and towels etc, but we honestly just don't have that type of kitchen...
Has anyone just used a chair in the tub for a young baby??? is there a certain reason you are not suppose to do this that I am not aware of??
I didnt have a baby bath for my first, just used to put her in a really shallow bath, Had one for my 2nd tho and tbh used maybe a handful of times, then just started putting him in a shallow bath too. So glad i didnt buy one and got one given, would of been a right waste of money.
Hi there.. I don't have kids yet BUT I know that my grandma bathed us in these tub like things that were actually sort of buckets just shallow and big? LOL hard to explain maybe.. uhh I was also bathed in the kitchen sink and in a shallow bath.
The seat I have ( or rather want to get) is one of those mesh material things that is on a wire frame, it is positioned so the baby can lay in it with it's head slightly higher than the rest of the body. My sister has one she uses for her LO and has used it since birth and it seams to work really well as he gets wet all over but is still safe and comfortable.
Tasha41 / Soon2be3: I can't wait to bathe my little girl in the sink!!! I think I will need to wait until she can sit up or at least support her head, but these make for the sweetest pictures, don't they!!
i was wondering the same thing.... we couldnt find the space for the one that we were going to buy. Than my OH said why dont we just use our bath lol.. i think he just wants to bath with her i said that is fine we will do that.... no point having two baths really is there......
