This one won't hold two kiddos, but we have a blow-up duck bath that we put into our regular tub that ds loves! He is only 15 months, but he's about 34" tall and he fits in it well. I know it won't last forever, but it was inexpensive and it makes me feel like he's safe. It might be a good temporary solution for you. We got it at Kmart, but I know I've seen it many other places too.

We have the duck too! I tried to put G in the regular tub, but I had anxiety attacks trying to keep him safe so we are back using the duck. You use less water as well.

I've never seen an actual baby bath that would hold two kiddos.

is this the one you're talking about?
Snug-TubDeluxe

there is one customer image with two kiddos in it... but they look pretty squished and the older boy looks like he's about to get out.

i've done some hunting on the internet and there doesn't seem to be a lot of selection..

right now we have the one step ahead bath i like that it suctions to the wall.. since we just leave it in the shower.. we have VERY limited storage at our place.. and he takes a bath almost everyday..

maybe we'll just get our own.. i'll do some more research and see if anyone else has a fabulous tub they suggest

thank you all for your comments

I have that snug tub deluxe and LOVE IT!
I have a shower stall also and I got it when I was pregnant with my son because I couldn't bend over a tub. My daughter will be 2 on Tuesday and she still uses it.
I've had it for almost a year and it's pretty rugged. It's also pretty big.
It's great to travel with and easy to blow up.
I got mine online but I did just see it at Babies-R-Us.

The kitchen sink might work. You could put one kiddo on each side if a single side isn't big enough.

Married to DH 7 years and have three fantastic kiddos! DS 6, DD 4, and DS 2 ...... lo and behold another is on the way!

We have this one and I love it. I think it might work well for you because it has a toddler and baby side (the baby side the baby can lay down as in an infant tub--very secure and comfy) facing the toddler side where a very good sized toddler can sit. My sons still fit in it at nearly 3 just fine.

Here is a link for the duck bath. It says it is for up to 24 months, but like I said, I have a pretty tall guy that fits securely but comfortably.

It looks similar in concept to the one you linked to. The duck has a flap with a hole on the end so you can hang it on the wall or door with a nail or suction cup hook.

I have this one, too. It is really quite large. When I put it in the bathtub it almost takes up the whole space! I quit using it once he could sit well on his own because it was just easier to put water in the actual tub. When he was itty bitty I just put some water in it and used it on the bathroom floor instead of in the tub or shower stall. It's worth a look. I got ours at BRU.

How about one of those giant rubbermaid tubs?You could even put a whole in the bottom of one of the sides to make drain for it.You can buy corks or plugs in craft stores.
