I really like being able to shower with my baby(because it much faster and easier) but he is now getting just a little too big for me to hold anymore so what can I do?

I have tried to find one of those seats that stick on the tub floor thinki9ng I could stick him in that while I shower then wash him up but apparently they don't make them anymore, so what have you mommys firgured out?

  • When they're big enough to sit on their own I just let them sit and play in the bottom. Otherwise, just take your shower when he's napping.

  • I just let my kids play in the bathroom while I showered, or tried to do it while they napped. But you mentioned they don't make those seats anymore, so I just quickly googled - they're called bath rings and they have them at Amazon. My kids all used that seat in the tub.

  • I used to have my daughter sit at the far end of the shower, which she loved. If you can't do that, there are slings made for using in the water that you could put her in. Here are a couple:

  • I think we got our bath seat at Target. I bought it online. Check there too. It was a lifesaver!
