Extra Large Square Bathtubs - Baby bathtubs make it easier for the parents as they are a more compact spot to give your infant a bath.

When a baby becomes six months old, the infant will end up too large to have a bath in an infant bathtub, all though you can discover bathtubs which can accommodate a newborn or toddler weighing around twenty-five pounds.
At about nine months a baby will outgrow this type of tub. At this time it's the right time to move to a normal size bathtub. You will put in the bathtub only enough water so that it's quite shallow and also test the water to make sure that it isn't overly hot. The first bath you provide your infant ought to be sort of a test run. What we mean by that perhaps, it ought to be a sponge bath rather than a true bathroom. After umbilical cord does fall off, you can give your infant a bath every day if you wish.

So it'd probably be a good idea to provide a bath maybe three times throughout the course of a week.
There are a few things that you ought to have on hand when you wash your baby, such as, a soft towel preferably a hooded one to cradle your infant's head, a baby washcloth and an unscented hypoallergenic baby wash which doubles as pulp. No matter which infant tub that you select it'll be awkward and the heck of an experience to a parent as the infant will be moving around.
