BATHING with your kid

Anyone else think it is weird? I cannot imagine bathing with my 4 month old. Do you shower or do tubs? Are you afraid of slipping while holding your kid? How do you manage to hold them and wash all their and your own parts? I try not to keep my baby in the water longer thn ten minutes and I was thinking how would I do all that with my baby and my time limit.

This is not a bash. I just wondering. CM members have changed my mind about co-sleeping after insight on it. Maybe once I get info I can try it.

I don't think it's something that has to be done. Keep doing what you're doing. :)

I never took a bath with my son simply because the thought of him peeing in the tub while I was in there grossed me out so bad. I only showered with him a couple times but he was so much older that he wanted to wash my butt and I thought that was weird
So no. I don't shower or bathe with my kid.

I bathed with my son every so often. He loved it. I stopped when he was about 2 years old.

bathing with a baby that small is really hard. The few times I did it I had hubby hand her to me then I washed her and handed her back to hubby.

I bathed with my son, now age 10, when he was five months and he pooped in the tub, never bathed with any of my four children again.

Not something I have ever done with my 3 kids. I was rather grossed out also they would pee in the tub or worse yet. You do what you feel is comfortable. Not everything is comfortable for everyone.

My 18 month dd showers with me. But it's because we don't have a tub.

I shower with my daughter, she's 3 months. We take baths together at night to relax.
Then I shower my son if we are in a hurry with me,he's 19 months.

I bathed with both my dd and ds when they were infants. We played and they loved it. I never thought too much about if they peed in the bath or what not, seeings as how they have puked, peed, and gotten poop on me at some point of them being a baby... Many more disgusting things to worry about vs peeing on me in a bath tub where we can clean it off immediately lol... FYI Urine is sterile :p But to eaches own.
