My son will be 3 when our new baby is born. He is SO EXCITED about bathing with the baby, it's really sweet. When he was a baby I used to just bathe with him, or shower with him, or I used the wash pod bucket thing. He liked being immersed, not just wet on his bottom like the regular baby baths do.
I wish my tub was big enough to fit all three of us, but that will probably be pretty rare and a hard squeeze. So I want to buy a baby bath that I can use in the tub ideally with my 3 year old too. When the baby is older, the ring one I used for my son will work, but for a baby who can't sit up yet, are there any baby tubs that would fit in a normal size bath with some tub space left over for my son? My son would be fine with there not being much water in the tub and spending his time painting the walls with water.
Can you use those newborn sling things that go in a infant tub alone? Like this: http://www.buybuybaby.com/product.asp?SKU=14884513&RN=7051& but just the sling part?
This looks too big, but I like how the baby can't slip: http://www.buybuybaby.com/product.asp?SKU=14909478&RN=7051&
we used this with my son, but it's a bit tricky getting hair washed and not dunking the baby! http://www.buybuybaby.com/product.asp?SKU=17950282&RN=7051&
So was thinking maybe this: http://www.buybuybaby.com/product.asp?SKU=15128003&RN=7051&
and just keep my hands on the baby at all times and not fill the tub up much?
Or do I just suck it up and squeeze in there every time with them?
And yes, I know no matter what I do I need to make sure my son isn't splashing or being silly around the baby. He's just so excited over this part of the baby coming that I want to buy a tub with him so he feels like he has a job.
