Bathing twins in big bath

My boys are 10 months, and we just got around to trying the bathtub.  I had my husband's help, and they did fine.  My question is:  have any of you successfully bathed them both in the tub on your own?  Obviously I'd have everything I needed and setup beforehand.  It'd be nice to have the option instead of waiting for my husband's help on the weekends.

Thanks for the advice!

  • Mine are almost 8 months and I do. I just throw 2 hand towels down for them to it on so they don't slide around. No issues at all. I've been doing it this way for about a month and a half. 
  • I was on my own most of the time since DH traveled M-F. I was not able to bathe them together until they were closer to 1 year. I would get the bath ready then set up a big towel on the bathroom floor with toys for one to play with, while I bathed the fir

  • I'm a single mom, so every bath was done by myself.  Are they good sitters?  If they are, you can probably just put them in the tub with a few inches of water.  As you said, make sure you have everything you'll need in the bathroom before y
