My 3 month old is getting to big for my table top baby bath putting him in the the big bath at this point is just to hard it is very low and I have hip problems from child birth it is painful to kneel for to long.
Does anyone have any advice or know of something I can get to make this easier?

You know those big plastic boxes you can get for storing clothes and things? You can buy them at big w, or $2 shops. When dd got too big for the baby bath, I bought one of those and put it on either the dining table or the kitchen bench. (Put a towel down first), perfect height for me to bath dd, easy on my back, and then when she could sit up safely in the bathtub, I used the container to store her baby clothes.
Easy, well it worked for me.

Dd showered from about a week old, much easier then messing around with a bath in my opinion even now at nearly 2 she would be lucky to have 1 bath a month!

What about the laundry sink? I never owned a baby bath - just used the laundry sink from the day we came home from hospital. Still bathe my 19 month old in there occasionally.

We bought a small stool so I could sit and bath him in the normal bath. I alternate between showering and bathing so the stool makes it doable

we dont have a bath tub so when DS got too big for the baby bath (and could sit up with a little assistance) he went into the kitchen sink when I was home by my self. When DH was home he would hold him in the shower and I would jump in and wash him. Once he could sit well, we got a rubber mat for the bottom of the shower and he sat down there to be washed and I just picked him up and rinsed him off.
Now he stands in the shower.
