I've never bathed my babies in the sink. We used an infant tub until baby sat up by itself. My daughter went into a duck bath thing but my son went straight into the big boy tub when he sat up alone. I am doing the same with this third baby.

I always did it in the tub in a baby bather or you can lay a towel down in the tub and use another towel for a pillow, fill up a bowl of warm soapy water, wipe down and rinse

 I found it easiest to bath with ds. I would fill the tub with water get in either with ds or have dh bring me baby and I would wash him and let him relax in the water. He also loved to nurse in the tub so he would have some boobie milk. Then I would get out with him or have dh get him out and I would finish my bath.

I'd take a bath or shower with my baby boy in my arms or I'd put his baby tub in the tub and take a shower and clean him. Just do whatever makes you feel comfortable and what helps keep your baby feel comfy too.

My dd took a bath with me until she was old enough to sit up in her bath chair or the sink. I would soak and relax for 10 minutes then DH would bring her in, he also got her out. If I didn't want to take a bath with her I would put extra fluffy towels on the countertop and give her a sponge bath. This worked really well when she was teeny tiny because I could keep her mostly covered with another towel while I cleaned her so she stayed warm. And when she took a bath with me I would have hubby put a towel in the dryer so she stayed nice and warm when he took her out.
