  • I have taken my LO in the shower with me. I try to keep the spray from hitting her directly in the face, but it is okay to shower with him.

  • Well I have showered with my kids since they were born.  My kids are now 3 yrs (girl) and almost 2 yrs (son) So I don't shower with them any more I think that is just.... not sure of the word but not for me.  I do go to the washroom and my daughter or son will come in because she is using the potty and he just comes in.  lol!!  I do think it is ok with to do this as long as you are safe.  The get slippery with soap. lol!!

  • I would say its safe..

    I wish I could do that but my son doesnt like the shower coming down on him...he does however like to splash constantly and flood the bathroom"

  • I've done it with my DD since she was 2 months. Just keep them where the water doesn't hit them too much and they'll be fine. I sometimes take a shower with both my girls (2 1/2 YO & 6 months) and they both love it

  • The water hitting him is fine, as long as it isn't too strong. You do have to be careful though if he is a wiggly one. I take my dd in there with me sometimes, but it can get really slippery. She does have fun though.

  • my daughter is 7 months and she showers with me more often than she takes a bath by herself. She likes it!
