  • Daily. I had a bath seat like a bouncy chair that I just put on the floor of the tub. Later, when she was wriggly, I showered one-handed, holding her in my arms.

  • Every day. My MIL was here the first two weeks, then my husband took another week off, followed by my mom visiting for two weeks. So during that time, someone held her while I showered. Once it was just me and her during the day, then I put her in her bouncy seat in the bathroom with me. She's almost 16 months and still sits in her bouncy seat while I shower. Unfortunately, she's about to hit the weight limit, so now we have to figure something else out.

  • I take baths with DD. Sometimes we do family showers with DH.
