Infant Bath Tub

The kitchen counter often becomes a bath center for the first couple months, so start with a smaller tub. A mesh sling provides useful traction for a newborn but will mildew so don't be surprised. When your baby begins splashing around, have a larger tub on hand that you can use in the grown-up bath tub.

Baby Wash

With a combination soap-free wash/shampoo product, you can lather up baby in one step without juggling multiple products. A pump dispenser leaves one hand free. And keep the scent simple, especially in the early months -- babies have a heightened sense of smell and allergies or other sensitivities could surface.

Rinse Cup

A small specially shaped cup or squirt bottle is perfect for rinsing baby's hair without getting water in eyes or ears. Hospitals have nice squirt bottles for patients. Ask for a new one (or two) before you are discharged.
