We're looking at apartments tomorrow, and some of them will probably not have tubs: just shower stalls. DS is 21 months.
Is there any kind of portable thing we can get to bathe him? (Links are welcome!) Does anyone bathe her/his babe in a shower stall at this age? We don't have too many options financially and I'm wondering if this is something we can work with, or if lack of a tub should be a reason for ruling out an apartment.

dd showers with us since she's about 9 months old. she also sat on the floor for a while. gradually she started getting more into it & playing more. by the time she was 3, she'd stay in the shower stall with the water off for up to 30 minutes after i got out! :
she's 4 now & yesterday took her 1st shower by herself. she was very very proud. i'll figure out hair washing but we dont' do that too often so this is great for frequent washings.
Incidently you can't say the word "Shower" or you will have a VERY interested little boy pulling you toward the bathroom saying "Shaoooo! Shaooooo! OK? Shaoooooo!"

Just want to mention, perhaps detachable shower heads would make this easier?
Yes, yes, yes! Makes hair washing soooooo much easier, especially if the child has a lot of hair. We even use it for hair washing when they're bathing in the tub.
A sink with a sprayer also works depending on the size of the child and the size of the sink.
It's faster too, unless DS decides to help himself to a snack.
