  • I used to do that. Just strap her in and take her in the bathroom with you.

  • Take the bouncy seat into the bathroom with you, or a baby monitor. It'll be fine.

  • That used to be the only way I would get a shower. Like everyone else said, make sure she is strapped in and the seat is on the floor.

  • I would take a monitor in with me. That way if I heard her I would be able to get to her, but I would also be able to get a few minutes of peace and quiet.

  • No.. i kept all my kids in a swing (greco deep chair swing) and just kept them buckled in tightly and with the moible going to keep there attention until there closer to 6 months old, I found it to work for my kids... after they are about 6 months I put my kids in a exer sauser until there around 1yr an a half because they CAN'T crawl out and I just keep the door cracked when I am taking a shower so I can hear my kids also have a monitor in the bathroom with me and the base in the living room even though it's 15 steps to the livingroom.. I noticed that my kids are happier watching cartoons for 10 mins while I am in the shower than screaming because I locked them iin the bathroom with me etc...
