If you’re used to giving your baby a bath in a baby bath tub, then making the switch to your household tub might take some getting used to for both you and baby.
Keep Baby Comfortable
When you’re making the switch from the baby bath to your household tub, one of the bathtime basics that you need to pay attention to is your baby’s comfort level. Small baby baths are likely to be very comforting to your little one, but a larger, more open tub might cause your baby to feel a bit nervous. As such, you should do what you can to keep your baby as comfortable as possible in the big tub. This might require more talking and singing from you, or you may need to turn the lights down and put on some soft music. Do whatever you can to make your little one feel as comforted and protected as possible.
Try to Have Fun
One of the great things about switching from a baby bath to your tub is that you have lots more room for toys. In a small baby bath, there’s really not room for much more than the task at hand. With the whole bath tub at your disposal, you can really start to have fun with your little one. Buy some rubber duckies, colorful blocks, or other fun bath toys that your baby can have fun with in the tub. With some toys to play with, the time baby spends in the tub can be a joyful bonding experience for the both of you.
