  • I didn't use the big tub until a year old. For one b/c it was cheaper to just fill the small tub w/ water and b/c for two I thought she'd be safer in the small tub.

  • about a month old maybe. i got him one of those little cradle seats and put a inch of water or two and got in the tub with him and bathed him. it was so much easier than a baby bath!

  • When he could sit up by himself without slipping or falling. He is 14 months now, and he takes a bath by himself, but I never leave him in there alone, but I can just sit on the (closed) toilet and watch him now instead of hovering.

  • hmm Ash was around 3months old, he hated those baby baths,wouldn't stop squirming and screaming, so i just put about an inch of water in and let him splash like mad, he loved it!

  • Lydia was about 2 months old. I got her one of those bath seats that turn and stuff. She loves it. I usually just take her in the shower with me and the hubby. Makes things faster. He holds, I wash.

  • Our daughter went from the infant tubs to her dad's arms. He would hold her in the shower, wash her up,then hand her to me. It worked great for a while until she started getting touchy feely. Then we went to the big bathtub!
