Bathtime

We attempted a bathtub bath a few days ago. It was difficult and took both Jim and I to keep things under control. So today we did a kitchen sink bath. MUCH more manageable. Our kitchen sink is tiny so it was much easier to get control over our slippery little half-limey.



He actually didn't seem to mind being cleaned this time.

All better!

You're next, pug!

Isn't bathtime great fun! I'm glad you found an easier way to enjoy it as mommy without worry. Was that an outtie belly button I saw?!

It's hard to say. It seems to be an outie when he cries. Then other times its a little more innie. I don't know if he's decided which it will be. Maybe an inbetweenie?

I highly recommend one of these: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2403...

We have this exact one and it worked great. Our kitchen sink was big enough that it worked in there, but it can easily be put in the bathtub as well. Made bath time with a newborn a lot easier. I think I only used the hammock thingie one time though. It was just easier to hold her instead of using it.

I think we might pick one of those up, soundchick. I know he won't be fitting in the sink much longer and if we get one Jim won't have to do all the dishes before Liam can have a bath. (PS~ Thanks for doing all the dishes sweetie!)

Half-limeys are tricky little things. We have/had one of those plastic tub thingys. We used to take it into the warmest bedroom along with all the paraphernalia each time we did a bath. What a palava. When summer came we were OK putting it in the main bath tub and once Lucy could sit up we just started bathing her in the bath itself. Now bath times are super easy.....except washing her hair. She doesn't understand to hold her head back to stop soap going in her eyes so being the softy I am, I just do it slowly with a wash-cloth.

I'm just a mean ol' Momma I guess, because my poor babies had the yellow bear-shaped sponge thingy, which we used on the vanity 'til they got more squirmy and itchy to move around. At that point, we just plopped the yellow bear-shaped sponge thingy into the bottom of the tub with baby on top! We even put their little bottoms on it when they were learning to sit up, which worked fine. And as far as the hair-washing scenario, simply wash with your favorite "no more tears" formula baby wash followed by either a good dumping of water over the head with a cup or play bucket or a dousing with the hand-held shower sprayer, whichever is more convenient. HA! Now, both kids prefer showers to baths, and that makes my life much easier.

We also had one of those yellow bear things and that is what we used at first. Then, Tripp pee peed on our food that is on a shelf in the kitchen so we moved him to the bathroom in a baby tub. I bathe him in the baby bathtub that I put in the real bathtub (in case of pee pee and I put a wash cloth over him too... if we had only thought of that earlier). Plus, then all the bath stuff stays in one place. We use this one.

I liked it when he was in the hammock. It was really easy for me to wash him. He liked it too; his back was in the warm water and I think that helped keep him warm. Now he's still in the semi-reclined position (but trying to sit up everytime). He likes to play with the toy that's attached, but that is a recent discovery for him. I agree with Angi on getting the shampoo out. I use the cup thing that came with the bathtub, but it just gets poured over his head (carefully of course). George, you are a nice daddy.
