  • When he can sit up without any support, thats when I started giving my son baths in the tub.

  • Yep I agree with the last answer- when she can sit up on her own- other wise she may squirm outta your hands (I know- I tried a little too early and my daughter bonked her head on the bath tub)

  • I took baths with my son starting at about 3 months. I had a little hammock type chair he laid on and would fill the tub a little bit and wash him. That or if we were in a hurry, I'd just plop him in there with me and hold him while I washed him.

    Once he could sit up I bought a bath chair and he still uses that most of the time so he doesn't slide all over the tub. (he thinks that's a blast, but I can't wash him!)
