I would love to be able to simplify my routine by bathing my 7 1/2 month-olds together. But I'm a little worried about the process. They are both moving around a lot so I want to make sure they are safe in the water. Any suggestions or products out there to make this easier?

The bath seats are GREAT!!! I was using only one for a while.... boy was that a mistake! I would have one in a walker in the bathroom while I washed one then switched. That was more of a hassle than anything! Get the seats. I think it helped my boys learn to be in the tub together. The ones I liked you hook it to the side of the tub and it suctions to the bottom.

When my twins were sitting well I sat them in the regular tub, played music and had toys for them to play with. It worked fine. I did have a blow up tub, but to me was a waste of money. I also had the Bebe Peapod (Bumbo) seats that I would use if they were really squirmy! They worked great too!

if they sit use the duck blow up bath at Target. They can face each other sitting up and if they tip over they dont get hurt

I used bath ring seats, too. They are awesome!!! And, it's so much fun to bathe them together. You get to see their reactions at the same time and see how they interact, too. The bath rings were the best solution for me and are really pretty inexpensive, too. Have fun!!!

i use 1 tub for the both of them so i can bath i and also supervise the other at the same time. i used to bath 1 at a time but the other 1 used to get in the tub rite after so i decided to do it this way it have been orking so far i think you should try it and see if it works for you i hope it does.

i used the bath rings. You can even brace them up in the rings if they are still a bit unpredictable with towels. I also had the husband on stand by when mine were this young. If you don't know what I am talking about they are simply ring seats you set them down in. The ring has suction cups that attach it to the tub.
