A little while ago I blogged about a great collapsible changing table/bath combo. Turns out we replaced the laundry closet in that room (our laundry room is attached to our bathroom), and now the room is too small for it. :(. So now I’m at a loss as to what to do – buy a regular baby bath and just put it in our regular size tub, like Sarah does? What if I have another C and can’t bend over? Put the baby tub on a collapsible stand the way we did with Eden – and change the baby on the couch? Still buy this and put it in the baby’s room instead of the bathroom? Not a great idea for splashing…Still buy another changing table after buying a whole closet – NO.
I’m thinking of bathing the baby in the sink actually. Our kitchen sink is huge, but it means keeping it spotless (and empty of dirty dishes….) Our bathroom sink could probably hold a little baby, but I’m not sure about bigger babies. There are some good baby seats out there though, like this one that claims to fit in a sink, and ALSO folds up nicely :).
So then there is the changing table issue. Apparently, it’s not really a must have. I really may just do without it. A good idea I’ve seen is just to keep the stuff together in a basket that you can move from spot to spot. Change the baby on the floor, on the couch, a bed, etc. If it turns out that we really would like one – for my back, or knees, or just to have a place to get her dressed – we can always decide to take the desk out of Eden’s room and use that, like we did with her. It worked then, it can work again. And then we can buy Eden a new piece of furniture that is more practical, like a bookcase. Or something else. Like an ice cream cone. Do you think she’s too old (4) to fall for that?
OR – just saw this (see pic on right)
Hows that for cool?
