Bath time!

Hi ladies,

I've been using a plastic tub for my little guy that is supposed to last from newborn to toddler but he's clearly growing out of it already.  He wants to splash his arms and legs but using the tub on our table just makes such a mess.  He's also sitting up on his own now and doesn't like being in that reclining position at all.

 Any recommendations for seats or inserts that can go in an actual bathtub to allow this crazy little one some more fun in the bath but with some support?

Thanks in advance!

  • We put the infant tub in our big tub so when she splashes at least it's contained in the bathroom.  I can't see ours lasting to her being a toddler either, she's already as long as the tub.  I've heard of using the bumbo in the tub, or just a few inches of water if your LO can sit up.  Or hey, climb in there with him :-)

  • We've been using this http://www.amazon.com/baby/dp/B008H3PFM0 since DD has a newborn but now she tries to push herself up out of it.  I started using this http://www.amazon.com/Leachco-Safer-Bather-Infant-Bath/dp/B00005JIVI the other day and I swear she loves it.  I was afraid she'd want to sit up but she loves laying there kicking and splashing around with her hands.  She's able to be more submerged in the water but there's still enough padding at the top to keep her face and ears out of the water.

    My little guy is big for his infant tub as well. I laid him on his back in the normal tub at my moms house recently because she didn't have an infant tub....to my surprise he loved it! We do that everytime now.

    This is what we do. I throw the plastic tub in our actual tub. I am starting to think I will climb in with her soon though in our actual tub.
