  • I started with their first real bath at about 2 weeks. I found it much easier than trying to lean over the bathtub on my knees. Until they could sit on their own I would put a rolled up towel around the rim of the sink so they didn't hit their heads on the hard sink.

  • I always found it easier to just get in the tub with them...this is for easier when hubby is home to take the baby from the tub with a towel. You don't want to slip. If you use the sink or one of those baby tubs place a small towel on the bottom, it makes it more pleasant.

  • When she was a few weeks old. She loved the sink! We only had to move her out of it because she outgrew the space! Now she loves her tubby time.
