How old us he?

Does he need a bath -stinky? Dirty?

How was the bath in the sink? Did he love/hate it?

Usually not recommended to give them more than 2 baths a month, due to dry skin problems our little guys tend to have. Foot baths are a different matter though, as you can give them as much as needed, its just the full on bath that can be skin drying.

If it was me and depending how how many baths he's had so far, I'd probably wait until attempting to see if he'd swim. Wait till he's pretty much calm going into the bath, sounds like he does enjoy the water if he calmed down. If you have a tub, its a good place to try it, as most tubs are slanted, thus the end by the drain can be deep enough for them to try and swim, while the other end shallow. Lets them go to the deep end on their own.
