Iv seen the fisher price rinse and grow but I'm undecided has anyone got any advice? I haven't got a bath at home at all just a double shower thanks x

We used the kitchen sink! Sorry that's not very helpful grin My SIL has one with Winnie the Pooh on it.

There's no rush on getting one, easy enough to wash a baby in the sink.

A really simple cheap one without the ridiculous bumps that they are supposed to sit on (but actually dig into the back of a small baby as you are holding them). I have an IKEA one which has nice rubbery non-slip strips inside and underneath.

I use a washing up bowl blush

We love the Angelcare bath seat. Our kitchen sink is too small and awkward but our bath is really deep so awkward fit bathing a baby. This seat is brilliant for putting baby in so you can wash them.

The tippi toes one was a hit with us (including baby) as she obviously felt confident being supported and would thrash around in it happily - although i used the kitchen sink in my parents house and once or twice in ours. She didn't ever 'enjoy' being in the sink as much.

We got the Terry towelling ramp from Mother care. Few inches of warm water in the bath and lay them on the ramp.

I quite liked my funny bumpy bath. It was a mamas and papas acqua bambino (had to check the name, don't know if they still do them). Only problem is it is massive and a PITA to store. DS also had plenty of kitchen sink baths!

With ds1 we got a Tummy Tub which he enjoyed as a newborn, but would have enjoyed a bucket just as much (and for a fraction of the price hmm). Probably used it for about a month before we started just putting him in the big bath.

With ds2 there was a big age gap so the Tummy Tub had long gone. I considered not bothering with a bath but eventually caved and got a Boots own brand cheap one. It was fine, but after the first two or three baths and then we moved him into the big bath with his brother (who kindly acted as a bath support..). The dss' had great fun playing with water in it or pretending it was a boat, and then we gave it away to a friend of my mum who was wanting something for her ducklings confused.

If I was to have my time again, I'd use the sink.

We have been given a Stokke bath with a newborn insert which cradles the baby so you can keep both hands free - its one of the ones that actually folds flat - so great if you have limited storage. Not used it yet as we are still awaiting our little arrival but think it will be perfectly fine for our needs

Tbh for all the use it got the cheapest. We were in the same situation and only had a shower but tbh we used the kitchen sink more after the novelty wore off. We did get a fairly large one to alow for a toddler not liking the shower but they got used to it pretty quickly and as soon as they were standing just went in the shower.

The Mothercare basic one is ok but it's a bit small.

The Mamas n Papas one with green grips is the best - it's bigger and the grips work.

Sorry I don't agree about the kitchen sink - it's handy for sure but you'll have emergency blowouts and you won't want to deal with stuff sitting in the sink or around the sink for them to grab hold of when you're dealing with a live wiggling creature with poo up its back and trying to stop the poo getting all over you too!

The cheapest one you can get or scour charity shops or car boots. Honestly it's much better for environment.

We got given ours. Lent it out. It's coming back so we can use it for baby no 3. It'll be lent out again.
