    We don't have a proper bath here & little space - we just bathed DD in a baby bath for the first 7-8months. Just put it on our coffee table, floor or washing machine. Moved to showering her with us after she started trying to stand up in the tub. Just past one & she insists on joining one of us for a morning shower - will happily rest against us with the water on her back for as long as we let her

    What about a baby bath with a stand. You could use it in the shower so you could drain easy after, would save your knees and back.
    You can get ones with a folding stand so you could store away between uses

    I'd recommend getting a baby bath but I started showering with DD when she was a few weeks old, it was much faster, a lot less hassle. We just didn't use much baby wash else she got too slippery.

    We have no bath either. DS is 8 months and we either use the baby bath or shower. Too easy

    I would recommend a baby bath on the kitchen bench for the first 6 months or so just because my son loved it so much. It gave us so much joy to see him laughing and splashing so much. He is now in the big bath every 2 or 3 days and showers with me on alternate days.

    Folding bathtub baby. You can use it in the shower recess, big enough that my dd (nearly 3) can sit in it now. Folks up flat so it can go in the cupboard when not in use. Toys r us had them in their latest catalogue.

    I'd use a baby bath. I used it on the table or kitchen bench. Or you might be able to find one to fit the base of your shower, which will be good for when your baby is older. They can sit upright in there and splash around, but not make too much mess cos it will just go into the shower (mostly).

    If you can, replace your normal shower head with one that is on a hose. you can then place your baby on one of those terry cloth supports (we got ours from Target for $15) on the shower floor and use the shower head on a hose to bath them. Easy as!

    I've always taken my child into the shower with me. Even as a newborn - well, not very often then as they don't really need showers. But whenever she needed a wash, she just came in with me in my arms -it's a lovely memory actually, singing to her in a warm shower. We're on tank water so I didn't want to use the bath much, plus it seems back breaking getting down there to bathe her separately. I don't see any issue whatsoever with the shower. Now she's a toddler, she stands next to me in there - it's so cute.

    Thank you all for your replies! I feel much less stressed now. I'm thinking now a baby bath to use on the kitchen table, and later on the shower floor (or maybe on a stand), and having showers with her when I have more confidence and don't think I'm going to drop her like a slippery soap.

    Any recs for a good baby bath? Any one tried the collapsable ones?

    Thanks again
