View Full Version : What do you do?
Just wandering what everyone does with their toddlers when they have a shower etc?
I have difficulty grasping the concept of being in the shower and not hearing what's going on, or knowing where she is / what she is getting into!
If my DH isn't home and she is awake, I put her in the cot with a few books. She quite likes this however I'm not sure what to do when she goes from a cot to a bed.
I take her in with me. She wears a big hat so the water doesnt get in her eyes, and she just sits in the bottom till im done.:thumbsup:
Yeh Tremea likes the shower but it takes double the time and I'm normally trying to get ready for work.
i used to sit them in their highchair and let them eat tiny bits of food it would take them ages to pick it up and as i havea pretty quick shower i was out before the bordedom set in, with dd she always has one with me as we have the shower over bath here
my ds hates the shower. i put the telly on, shut the doors to the kitchen and the spare bathroom, and have my shower. i keep the ensuite door open so i can hear. he's pretty used to the routine and generally behaves himself.
he plays with his cars or watches a dvd
I shower at night after they are asleep.
Tyler has a shower with me. She cant have baths at the moment (orders from the doc) I get out before her get dry and then get her out. B4 when she could have baths. I used to put dora on she wouldnt move from the tv:laughing: :laughing:
I usually put a dvd on for peter and leave him be while i duck in for my shower. He cant get up to much in our house so i feel safe leaving him to amuse himself...
Some mornings if i wasnt able to bath him the night before, i bath him then jump in the shower while he's in there. That way he's getting clean and having fun and i can watch him while i enjoy my shower :D
Peter hates the shower as he hates water on his face hence why i dont bring him in with me.
I put both my kids in the bath while I shower most days.
On daycare days I try to bath them the night before then I leave them eating breakfast while I go shower. DH is usually still here on those mornings so I don't have to worry about them eating alone.
I shower when she is asleep... Or I take her in with me.
I wait until Grant comes home OR I wait until Skye is asleep and also when Hayley is having some quite time in her room as she doesn't really sleep much in the day anymore.
I just leave him in the lounge and playroom (they are the only two rooms he has access to thanx to security gates) and have a quick shower. He is pretty good.
I put DD in her highchair and wheel it within view of the shower or put her in her rocker in the bathroom.
i used to bring them in the bathroom with me, but now , i just let them watch tv. most of the time DS sits there absolutely glued to the tv and DD hangs about in the bathroom with me. the one thing i do do, is close the back door so they can't wonder out of ear shot.
DD showers with me every day, she plays at my feet while i do my thing then I wash her and sometimes have a play in the bottom of the shower with her and we're out!
I get up before them both, but on the odd occasions that I really can't be bothered, I wait till Tillie is having a sleep and put Max and Milly on for Maddy. I leave the bathroom door open so she can come in when she wants.
i put on a hi5 dvd for jake while im in the shower, its good because he sings to it so i know he is ok:D
I try to shower when DD2 is in bed so DD1 will shower with me or she comes into the bath room and talks to me i never have a shower in peace lol
DS usually showers with me unless i'm shaving my legs or something and then i wait till he is asleep at night to shower. he just sits on the floor and plays with the water and some toys while i'm doin my thing.
I just leave the door open & DS mostle hangs out in the bathroom, trying to retrieve his toys from the bath tub. If he cruises out, I just keep calling him & talking as I know he won't go far. Our house is extremely child proof though, so there is nothing he can get into that I don't already see him getting into!
