As a parent, you are bombarded with advertising and product choices for millions of different niche baby products. Some of these products are useful (I’ll write more in the future about some we love), some are okay, and some aren’t really necessary (at least for us).
For the past two months we have been using our kitchen sink to bath Frugal Boy. The height of the sink makes it an ideal work surface for us. We don’t have to get on our knees to wash him.
He doesn’t seem to mind the slightly cramped conditions.
We follow our pediatricians recommendation and bathe him about once a week. Scrubbing up too frequently dries out a babies sensitive skin.
If you are overly worried about your baby gulping down water and drowning, don’t be. All babies have a diving reflex that causes them to hold their breaths when their face is submerged. Even so, we play it safe and keep Frugal Boy’s face well above the water.
Frugal Boy seems to be a bath/shower thinker. Here he is contemplating life.
