  • well in the past i have
    A. waited until they were asleep and jumped in.
    B. put them in a bouncy seat with toys and then jumped in (we have a clear shower curtain and I'd make faces at her as often as possible)
    C. Wait until DH is home and make him watch her.

  • Well, I used to wait until dh got home, but now if I want to bathe while it's just dd and I, I take her in the tub with me.

  • when mine were very little. I would put them in the carrier and take the carrier in the bathroom with me. The steam is good for them anyway. When they no longer fit in the carrier, I just waited til someone got home. On occasion if they were in the crib and asleep I would jump in, but leave the bathroom door wide open, the bedroom is next room over.

  • in her bouncy seat right outside the shower curtain.

  • I sometimes wait until they are sleeping (or get up before they wake up) or shower when Dh is home and able to watch them. Usually, I just shower or bath with my baby/toddler. I have a Water Wrap and that makes it much easier when they are tiny ones - I didn't get one until my fourth baby and I was like, "Where have you been all my life!" when I used it the first time. It was awesome (and works for the beach/lake too!)

  • Infant: See above answers lol. Bouncy seat, crib (while sleeping), sitting up infant In the tub seat and hooked it onto the tub but with him sitting outside the tub

    Toddler: highchair during the 'trans' state (after he eats he zones out for about 10 minutes), while he is sleeping, or he comes with me (sometimes this is not my choice our lock is broken and there are times i end up having a naked child climb in with me lol while he's yelling "BAFF MOM BAFF OWER!!")
