In the Bathroom
A Bath Tub
Baby bathtubs are not too expensive, and help keep a squirmy infant safe at bathtime. If you're looking to save space or money, consider a tub or sink liner, a thick sponge that cushions the baby in the sink or tub. A bath thermometer is another inexpensive purchase with a big safety pay-off.
Niceties: Hooded towels and Baby Washcloths.
Although they are handy, cozy, and cute -- these items are not essential.
