  • My son is 15 months old and just started using the big person tub. He has really bad balance so we gave him extra time.

  • I started at about 5 months because she was too big for the travel tub we used. We use one of those tub hammocks in the big tub.

  • I used his bathtub in the big tub until he was 6 months, then when he could sit up unassisted I put him in the tub without his bathtub

  • I had a safety ring thingy for my girls. I think they were around 5 months when I started using it. they were all too long or unhappy in the baby tub.

    its hard when they can walk/crawl because they get really good at climbing out (or at least mine did)

  • Our 11 month old just takes showers with us. One parent will shower with him, then the other will take him and dry him off while the first one washes his or her self.

  • My son was in the regular tub at 5 months

  • we started using the regular tub at like 12 weeks. She was not fitting well in her baby tub anymore so I bought one of those sponge things that lay on the bottom of the tub. Works wonders.
