I'm hoping some of you with more experience can give me some advice. I'm a soon to be first time parent and have no idea about bathing babies. We currently have a very small bathroom with no bathtub and a small basin with no bench top space. At the moment I'm stressing out worrying about where and how to bath the baby but I've read that newborns don't need to be bathed very often. I've heard suggestions that I can bath baby in the kitchen sink or laundry but our house is old and gets really cold so I'd prefer not to.
I'm thinking about using a puj in our tiny basin when baby is little for sponge baths, but they look quite small and I'm not sure how long we could do that for, after that I thought of a collapsable or inflatable baby bath to use in the shower but that'll be hell on my knees, does anyone have any other suggestions or recommendations?
I also like the look of the tummy tub but think, like the puj, that won't work long term. How long do you think I have before having to worry about washing baby in a bigger space? (so I can minimize initial expenses)
Finally if I decided to forget about the baby bath, how feasible is it to plan on sponge bathing for a few months then taking baby in the shower?
Sorry for the long rambling post! As you can see, I have no idea, any advice would be hugely appreciated
