    Default Baby bath

    My bub is 5.5 mths old and has grown out of his baby bath yet he can't hold himself up completely yet. I've looked at a 'transition bath' to make the move between the baby bath and actual bath but he's too big for that! Bub is quite long too

    I put a towel in the bottom of our bath and laid Bub on that.

    You could try showering with him.

    Why can't you just hold him in a normal bath?

    We just used a normal bath. Just 2 inches of water and laid bub flat on his back, he loved kicking his arms and legs and it's so good for them to get used to the water. Can put your hand under their head until they get used to it or if you're not comfortable etc.
    Laurie Lawrence has a good dvd regarding this - you should be able to get it free if it's not already on YouTube.

    My dd grew out of her baby bath at 3 months old, so nowhere near sitting up. I just got in the normal bath with her.

    We have rarely used the bath at all since DD was about 2 months old. She showers with one of us every day and loves the water on her face! Maybe you could try showering? It's much quicker and easier than using the bath I find. We use the bath occasionally so she can splash around and kick in the water.

    Can't get a good enough grip on him as he slides around
