  • I used the bathroom sink and had those towel things that had the shampoo/soap already in it.

  • I bought my son the little white baths from walmart and instead of bathing him in the tub I did it on top of the sink. Put be have a counter sink, I just put the shampoo in and rinse it out wether he cryed or not, my son had alot of hair too.

  • Kitchen sink. Clean it well before and after. :)

  • I used a folding baby bathtub that fit in my kitchen sink until my twins were too big for it, and when they started sitting up I kept bathing them in the sink without the bathtub; this saved my back and knees. I used a cup to wet and rinse their hair and went very easy on the shampoo (pediatrician said they didn't really need any soap or shampoo, but I liked the way it smelled). If you have a sprayer in your kitchen sink you can use that on a very low setting too - just keep checking to make sure the temp is ok.

  • I pop her in the tub with me. Been doing it this way since she was 2 weeks old and she's 9 months now.

  • I showered her with me or like Arisce said, I also take baths with her. I have one of those plastic/rubber chairs that help them sit up right in the shower, so while I clean me, she plays. I have been doing that since she was about 5 months, and now she is a year old and we still do it. A great time saver too! The only things is getting out, working out the whole towel arrangement. One time she peed while I was trying to get a towel on each of us. We took another shower! I usually just get dad to come get her and he dresses her and everything.

  • When my son was 3 months old, I was using a little stand type thing that he laid in in the tub. It was only 3 dollars at Wal-Mart, and he loved it! And it was easy to rinse his hair (he has a lot also). I couldn't find a picture of it at Wal-Mart.com, so he're's my bug in it.
