How can one (safely) bathe an infant/toddler in large tub?

The tub is very deep...I keep thinking there is a way to prop up an infant blow up tub so the mom does not have to lean in so far.

PS Prefer not to only have bathing with baby in the tub as the only option.

  • I mean you can use the sink or just bird baths between actual baths... I only ever bathed with mine but I did do some wipe downs between...

  • How about the kitchen sink? I also think they make those inflatable pools that you could prop up with towels,, I think give baby a bath when you do,, and then dry off and wash your hair,,,

  • Put the baby bath across the kitchen sink. That's what I did, so much easier! A toddler, get the bath ring so you can relax a little.

  • You don't bath an infant in a large tub, either you buy one of those baby tub with a big sponge or bath the baby in the sink.

  • For an infant I would use a baby bathtub, the kitchen sink if it's a single bowl sink (put a baby sponge mat in the bottom or a big towel to make it safer) or even a large, clean dishpan.

  • We just put the baby bathtub on the kitchen counter.
