I didn't bathe with my ds until he was able to sit up on his own. Until then I bathed him in a little newborn tub. Bump!

 I would get in the bath and hold her.  I don't normally bath with my children though.

A space heater helps. And a washcloth you can place in her and refresh the warm. We do those and have no chilly children.

Me either. Only reason why i asked is because my 9 week old was refusing to eat. It's bout 6 hrs. I finally got her to eat. I think she's teething. Not sure., my other kids were fine with teething. Never cried.

Take a towel in the bath with you can drape it over baby's back... every once in a while, splash some water on the towel.

Just bring a big wash cloth in there with you and hold her up against you, swish the cloth around so it's warm and wet and cover her up with it. Keep swishing it when it cools off.

Good luck :)

I've never done that, but maybe try sitting as close as you can to the faucet and gently splash her with the warm water, often.
