    Oh yes they are slippery once soaped up! If you have a large shower and a detachable shower head you can lay DS in the base of the shower, soap him up and then rinse him with the detached shower head.

    Laurie Lawrence has a good dvd regarding this - you should be able to get it free if it's not already on YouTube.
    We do this.

    I did this with DS from about 3 months old. He loved lying down in the bath

    Default Baby bath

    We used a little reclining seat in a normal bath from newborn until he could sit up on his own (9 months!). It was just a little reclined metal frame that had a terry towel seat that stretched over it that we could pull off to dry, wash, etc. it was great. ☺️

    I just kneeled on the bath mat or folded up towel, I was usually fine comfort wise since I only had to kneel and not fully support him.
