While this is about the scariest thing that I do with the baby, for Jacob is is a lot of fun! The baby bath mat is in our Kitchen sink - is that how everyone starts our bathing their babies?

That's how my babies started their baths--in the kitchen sink with a towel under their little hinies--no fancy bathmats 28 years ago! What a lovely, happy smile the baby has!

Mine was only 26 years ago but it was in the kitchen sink too!

Greenmare said...

yes the kitchen sink was actually designed for bathing babies. doing dishes became something it was useful for when they no longer fit in the sink. don't read what any baby book tells you about the dangers of the kitchen sink, everyone uses it.

Jules said...

That is how my babies had their first baths, oh so many years ago. What a happy baby!

Yup, kitchen sink for me, too. What a happy baby!

26, 24 & 22 years ago, in the sink, IN THE TURKEY ROASTING PAN, lol. Ok, so it fit!

Precious smile!

31 years ago, in the kitchen sink on a towel. He is such a cutie.

In the shower for us and then in the baby bath tub in the actual bath tub. What an adorable smile he has!!

Rhonda said...

What a precious moment. He adorable in the kitchen sink. That's where my mom bathed me so I'm told.
I'm getting a picture of those teenagers who bathed in the sink at McDonald's.....maybe they were having flashbacks to their babyhood......LOL

Add my vote to the kitchen sink! And mine was a LONNNNG time ago ... 37, 27, 25, 23, 29 years ago.

And ... mine do not bathe in the sink now, thank you very much. SO I am certain it does not ruin them.

What a handsome little man. (I have fallen in love all over again.)

I made my husband do it! After about 6 weeks we just took her into the shower with us, that lasted until she was about 1.

Gorgeous smile!

I always put the baby bath tub (with the spongy mat thingy) in the big tub. That way they got used to being in the room. We always had a little space heater running to keep it nice and shnuggy. And with twins, we did tandem bathing... I had one in the tub, he was drying the other.

Have fun!!! Make sure you stock up on tubby toys!!!

McIrish Annie said...

Just remember bathing a baby is a lot easier than bathing a kitty!! LOL

Catherine said...

What a happy baby!! Gorgeous smile.

Jeanne said...

Yes, I did the kitchen sink nearly 30 years ago, too. It's high and has a large adjoining counter, better than a bathroom vanity.

What a happy-boy smile!

Jeanne :)

I think I bathed mine in a baby tub on the kitchen table. But that was 35 and 37 years ago and my memory is, well, questionable these days. Love Jacob's smile! That's the cutest photo!

Cathi said...

46 & 37 years ago...that's where my girls were bathed until they were too big to fit! Very convenient as you don't have to bend over, etc. Cutie pie baby you have there!

I was around my nephews and niece a lot but I drew the line at bathing them--slippery baby, clumsy aunt. Recipe for disaster! I was always afraid they were going to take a header off the changing table while I was in charge. No way I was gonna dunk them in water.

Evelyn aka Starfishy said...

Oh you brave Momma. I swear - there is nothing slippier than a wet baby. In Europe the kitchen sinks are TINY, something I just can't understand. My Mom had a wonderful old farmhouse sink - it was huge and we took baths in it until we were about 5 - when she sold the house - she told the buyers that the sink didn't come with the house - she moved that sink into her new house!
Cheers!

How cute! I used the sink too. My DIL would never have done that, however. But you're obviously more practical!

julieQ said...

Yup! That's how I did it too!! Looks like baby is loving it!

sewprimitive karen said...

Yes, I did, safest spot. Look at him having fun!
