Is it OK just to sponge bath a 9 month old? My 9 month old is trying to stand in the bath even with me holding on to him so I am pretty scared to put him in water. Do you think a sponge bath is OK until he gets a little older?

Sure. Most babies just need a gentle wash with water anyway.

Why not sponge bath most of the time and then just bathe with him once or twice a week? Both my kids were walkers by that age and all over the bathtub, so we showered or bathed with them to have greater control.

At that age dd was just always in the bath with me for her bath. It was way too hard to hold onto her if she was in by herself.
