    Default Bathtub recommendations?

    I am looking for a tub for a baby due in 6 weeks. This is my 3rd and last child, so I don't need anything super fancy. We only have one bathroom (it has a tub) but it's not very large. Any recommendations are appreciated!

    TIA!

    We bathed The Biscuit in the bathroom sink with a towel under him for the first couple months. After that, we used the Primo Eurobath. Don't buy new -- they turn up on Craigslist all the time for about $10!!!

    This is what we did with Ds1. We started using the Eueobath tub from the beginning with DS2.

    I started both my babies out on a mesh sling that straddled the sink. They didn't like being submerged when they were that little. We also used the Eurobath after that. It's pretty huge, though. You'll have to find a place to store it.

    I also used the Eurobath for DS1 and got it again almost 6 years later when I had DS2.

    We used this one...inexpensive, easy to find, and worked fine:

    These are some options if you are short on space, but they are more expensive:

    http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...entPage=family (also for sink only, I think)

    Thanks for all of your suggestions! I am still undecided... I like the Boon one, but not sure I want to spend that much on a tub! I did also strongly consider the Eurobath, but I am nervous about the size of it! I'm afraid it will be too large for our space.

    We bathed the boys in the sink, and then sat in the tub with them for a few months and then just in their own when they could sit up. Skipped the baby bathtub because we didn't have any space!

    I used the first years one with my first kid, but liked this one MUCH better with my second. So much easier and took up a lot less room.
