  • since all we have is a stand up shower, DD has showered with me since she was about 5-6 months and i would hold her while showering ( DH would taker her after I washed her ) Now she is 2 and she takes showers all by herself. i wash her hair and body from outside the shower. she loves it!

  • They took showers with me when they were little and when they started school they started taking showers alone. My 11 year still occasionally showers with me. We save water that way.
