    Default Anyone else's child still in baby bath?

    Stupid question (and I don't even know if this is the right place to post it) but is anyone else's toddlers still in a baby bath?

    My 15 month old DD is. I find it really easy to fill, empty and clean and she doesn't try to get out. It seems perfectly fine for her and all her toys. Is this weird?

    TIA, Mary xo

    Our 19mth old is still in one too. She is happy, works for us and uses less water.

    If she is too old then I am in trouble because my 3.5 yo & 2 yo still use ours! lol.

    We only have a shower so I fill it up in the bottom of the shower and they play in (and out) of it. Saves a lot of water, and they love it.

    DD used a baby bath till she about 12 months. So much easier and uses much less water. But DS (3.5 months) now has baths with his sister because I'm already filling up the big bath for her so it's just a pain having to fill up the baby bath too.

    Awesome!!! Thanks for your replies, they've made me feel heaps better.

    So I've got at least another 2 years to go if I follow in your footsteps OurLittleBlessing. That's great news because our shower is over our bath and I just couldn't be bothered cleaning it more often than I have to (which is kinda gross I know, but cleaning the bath is really down there on my list of fun jobs).

    Again, thanks heaps xo.

    We don't have a bath, but have a bath sized shower cavity, so my 3.5yr son still uses the baby bath, as he doesn't like showering.

    If I had a bath, he would use it. I guess he'll have to start showering at some point, but it's still ok at the moment.

    I'm about to move my four month old from the baby bath to the big bath, she's just getting to big and it's becoming quite a messy affair! I've been considering the laundry sink - much more comfortable for my 6'6 giant DP and I!

    We don't have a bath so DD (2yo) sits in the shower in her tub (not a baby bath but close enough). She loves it. I'll probably just upgrade to a larger tub when she gets a little big for this one.

    We don't have a bath either so we do the same. DS mainly showers but sometimes hops in with DD when she has a bath in her baby bathtub in the bottom of my shower.

    I feel so much better knowing I'm not the only person in the world without a bath. We have a 3yo and one on the way, but it seems where there's a will, there's a way.
