I would reuse bathwater on the same day, but not save it overnight. I'm not as concerned about the germ factor, but the drowning risk (thanks to PP for thinking of that, it didn't even occur to me) would be too scary. Plus, I suspect that standing water would leave a killer dirt ring in the tub to scrub later.
Could you put your LO in a smaller tub to conserve water? Like a small baby bathtub inside
the regular tub? If he doesn't mind being confined to a smaller tub, you'd use a lot less water that way.
ETA: Sorry to repeat what PP's have said. I should have read the thread all the way through to the end first. Sorry!
