I've heard of people using stock pots with a towel in the bottom.

I would be happy to let it go cheap. (I've been using it as a laundry basket)

I adore our tummy tub!!! Always use it for new babies! So little water is needed (bonus for us) and babies love it.

Oh and it's very rounded at the bottom. Rounded edges for mamas arms to set on the edge. It's narrower at the bottom too. A bucket or bowl are not the same.

Re: Anyone use the bucket tubs? tummytub..ect

I actually used a giant plastic mixing bowl for the first couple of months. I laid a prefold in it so it wasn't slippery and it worked great. It was seriously the best little baby tub. I needed so little water which was a bonus (since I was using the quadruple-filtered water from our drinking water tap), plus it was free because my MIL sent it home with us full of bean soup a few weeks before the baby was born.

The difference is, with ours anyway, the curvature of the sides. It's shaped in a way that the baby can support itself without help once they can hold their heads up. It's a tight fit at the bottom and open wide at the top, so baby feels secure but parents can still get their hands in to wash. And I think it has a nonslip bottom.

I need to just ignore these tummy tub threads. I always end up sounding like a salesman for them if I'm not careful. I'm just such a huge fan of the product, it's hard not to advocate for them.

Me too. "And if you act now, we'll add a houseplant to your order free!!!"

I'll tell the story tomorrow. It's too late tonight.

I've seen videos of them on Youtube and they do look pretty neato.. we won't have a baby to try it out on until October but, I'm not sure if I want one or just a standard baby tub.
