  • My daughter is 11 months old. A couple months ago, I started putting her in the shower floor with me. Before then, I laid a big beach towel on the floor and shut the door and gave her some toys. Make sure things are picked up and she can't get anything. Hubby and I usually take a shower together and pass her back and forth, or she sits in the floor and talks to the person not washing at the moment. We have a family shower and bath, so there's room for that.

  • I put my daughter in the shower with me most of the time. She is 14mths - next week.
    When she was real little, I would try to shower while she was asleep, if not I used the pack-n-play

  • When my son was a baby, I'd strap him in either his infant carrier, bouncy seat or high chair and bring it into the bathroom with me while I showered.

  • When she was an infant I showered while she slept, or when she was old enough for the exersaucer I would bring that in there with me, but now she is 20 mos and usually just showers with me!

  • My granddaughter is 4 and the other is 1. My daughter makes sure the one year old is asleep, then she brings the 4 year old in the bathroom and sometimes I talk to her on the cell phone to keep her occupied.

  • i take showers during naps. or after bed at night and if i just have to have one during the day i take it in the kids bathroom and leave the door open with my son in there with me and a baby gate so he has to stay in the bathroom or the hall
