  • I would just bath her in the kitchen sink until she had good head control and can sit up really well. In my experience those baby bathtub contraptions are all crappy.

  • if she is sitting up you could try a bath chair.

  • You could always take a bath with her. I've done this a couple times. It is fun. I can't believe she has outgrown her baby bathtub. Get a new one that grows with your baby, like the one on the link below. You can take the infant sling part out and there is a little groove in the bottom of the tub that helps baby sit up in it. Our daughter is 5 months and she fits in it great.

  • I used to put mine in with me at that age. Daddy would wait until I got settled in then bring her to me and he would get her out, too.

  • This is what I use. Sorry I don't know how to link it. I like it a lot. You can put them at either end. One end is more reclined for babies who can't sit up very well or hold their head up.

    When traveling and we don't have the baby tub with us, my husband has held my daughter in the shower while we both kind of wash her and then he hands her off to me and showers himself. Traveling without my husband, I've taken a bath with her and then I will dry her off, put a diaper on her, and lay her on the floor while I shower or hand her out to my mom (who I was visiting.)
