Laying baby down in bath tub?

Ok, I'm a first time mom, so it may be a simple question, but bear with me :) My LO is 8 months old. She'll be 9 months in about a week. What age do you start laying them down on the tub? She's been in a bath seat until she could sit up on her own. I've been letting her sit in the tub. I'm not sure if I should start showing her it's ok to lay down, or will she get to that point on her own. Do I let her decide that for herself, or do I need to help?

Quoting Ashgambit: I've never laid my children down in the bath.

You want to lay her down in the tub? For a bath? What?

She likes to play in the tub after her bath. She has a few bath toys. I didn't know if she would get to the point where she would lay down on her own if she wanted, while playing, or if it was something I was supposed to help her with. Again, like I said, I sound like a simpleton, but I have to learn somehow.

That seems dangerous ...what if they roll over?? I've never heard of laying a baby down in the tub. I would not allow that until they are old enough to get out of the tub on their own ...

Do what feels right. Show her she can lay if you want or wait till she figured it out!

I would say don't lay her down. Teach her to keep sitting up. Laying down in a bath as an infant is dangerous.
