  • i liked using a shower chair, its a lil mesh/metal chair and it folds easily so its not in the way, also my DD was premature and i took baths/showers holding her!

  • I use Fisher price tubs. With my dd, it's a pink sparkly one, it had a mesh net for newborn, and now she is 4.5 months and there is a recline and a bump to hold her in place. When she gets bigger, I can take the bump out and she can sit in the tub.

  • I went from the foam insert to having to hold her in the shower. She never liked taking a bath until she was over 2 years old. I had one of the mesh seats and wish she would have liked it. the infant tub just seemed like it would always be in the way (having to store it somewhere until needed).

  • Kitchen sink worked well for us.

  • I use one of the bath sponges that is shaped to hold my DD, she hated the baby tubs but loves this because she is in the water more and therefore warmer. I got mine at Toys-R-Us
