Bathing twins doesn't need to be too complicated a task. Luckily, infants don't tend to get too sullied, at least not enough to warrant a daily bath. So, when twins are in this stage it's relatively simple to bathe them just two or three times a week. A small, portable bath tub is handy, but don't forget the kitchen sink, or a standard tub filled with shallow water.
Preparation is a must and will make for a smoother operation. Get towels, washcloths, soap, lotion, etc. ready and within arm's reach. A low stool to sit on can be a help, as well as a cushion or folded towel to kneel on.
With infants, bath time should be quick and to the point. You don't want them getting too chilled, and many infants won't even
like being undressed let alone wet. Although at some point, most babies do start to enjoy the soothing warm water.
You'll likely want to stick to
bathing one twin at a time during the early weeks (unless you have help). Then, as they get a little older (usually when they can sit up on their
own), twins can share the same tub and bath time can be extended. Think about getting a pair of bathing seats that are made for babies in the tub. The
whole experience generally becomes more and more enjoyable through the toddler
stage when they can really have fun with bath toys and such.
