    I am 67 yrs. old, before we had a inside bathroom we took a bath in the kitchen in a #2 tub. When I had my kids I bathed them in my kitchen sink and when they had my grandkids I bathed them in my kitchen sink. And they are all just fine; saved my back from bending over.

    Forget who got something to say..... I think it’s GREAT to give your grand baby a bath in the sink even if it was the kitchen sink but it’s OBVIOUS that is a LAUNDRY ROOM. Rickey Smiley your a great parent and grandparent friend and most of all gives encouragement and great advice just as God tells you,so the people will understand. Those who don’t understand they will someday. Keep up the GREAT WORK! Love you to pieces 😘

    Sir, some people just don't understand. We bath babies or little children in the sink because one you have to be comfortable to hold the baby child and have little children. They are very active and you have to be able to hold them. For those that don't know Black parents especially and older parents have been washing children in a sink for centuries. Instead of bending over a tub that is so big (I was typing it as you started to say this) to fill up for a baby or a little child. Keep being you sir. Congratulations again.

    If I had a sink like that to bathe my kids in, I would’ve done that, too! It’s easier on your knees & lower back. I bathed my kids in the tub & that’s the pain I went through. When my brother was small & all the kids that came after me, we bathed them in the KITCHEN sink! Yeah, I said it! We lived in the city but we were country as hell! 😂😂😂 And nobody died or got sick either! Now, watch some sensitive person get mad! Bye, Felicia! 😂😂😂
