My baby's a year and a month old and she is big for her mini tub in the bath. Any suggestions?

As soon as my son was able to sit upright alone we started using the Safety First bath seat and it has been a life saver. Now that he is comfortable in the water we have been able to transition him to just the big bathtub for his playtime. We still put him in the seat for washing up because it is safer....

We use our regular bath tub, but our lil one refuses to sit down anymore, and even though we have the non-slip mats on the bottom, he still has the odd slip. So what we do now, is give him a bath when I take a shower...I just cover the drain and the water rises so its like his own bath and he loves it !! Course my shower has totally been taken over by all his toys and he thinks that he "owns" the shower, but at least I know he is safe :)
I use one of those Rubbermaid storage containers that would fit under the bed. It's about 5 inches deep, and probably 20 inches by 40 inches. It fits perfectly into the bottom of the tub, limits the depth of the water and there's enough room for him to move around in it.
I picked it out at the store and then threw it in the floor to let the baby crawl in and out of it just to check the size.
When he goes to my mother's house, he uses the regular bathtub, but Mamma has three of those suction cup bath mats that she lines the bottom of the tub with. It gives him traction so he doesn't slip.
