    Thanks!!

    hey shenzhenifer...
    are you talking about the ones that have suction cups on the bottom and the baby sits it them?

    if yes, i'll offer you a trade...
    i'm looking for a little tikes-type race car bed. a regular twin size, not a toddler bed.

    i've found them in hk but they are about $3700...i was wondering if there was anything similar on that side of the border?

    it could even be a "made-to-order" bed as well...

    if you coudl have a look around, i'd be happy to bring my baby's bathseat for you...

    No, sorry, the kind of bath I mean is one that fits over the toilet for us ladies after we've given birth, particularly if we've had an epesiotomy or torn.

    I did the same as 'capital'. I had 4th degree the first and 3rd the second time, and even though it didn't cause any problems and healed very quickly. I would just sit in a little layer of water in the tub (keep top on) and clean and spray (ideally you would have a handshower as well). Worked just fine and not as much trouble as you think (you'll get used to it).

    I think I brought mine home from the Adventist. Your welcome to have it.

    I just sat in a tub with warm shallow water and also used the peri bottle...I think adding something onto the toilette would be more trouble--and not as sanitary--if you are sharing the toilette with other family members--having to remove it each time. I tore a lot, lot, lot and had many internal and external stitches plus a ton of bruising and swelling--couldn't sit without an invalid ring for 2 weeks. I also recommend getting some Dermoplast--it's an antiseptic spray that is cooling and soothing and also a topical pain reliever--it came in my "mother's bag" from the hospital and was the one thing I found very helpful.
