    I most often shower with my baby. I do have a plastic baby bath though because babies often love a bath. If they are having an unsettled day, nothing beats a nice warm soak and a belly full of milk to get them nice and relaxed for sleep. I sit our bath on the draining board of the kitchen sink, the warmest room of the house and at a good height level.

    I currently am using a fold up baby bath. It is perfectly fine. My only gripe about it is that it uses much more water to fill it than the cheap baby baths. My previous one was the old fashioned shape, rounded at both ends, and used to be filled with 10 litres of water. The collapsable one takes much more than this. I guess the bonus with that is that it will last until this baby is older, but if we were still on tank water it would be a consideration.

    I suggest showering with bub. That's what I did with DD6 because bathing seemed too difficult.

    You can get things that are padded and designed to go alongside the bath for parents to kneel on and it has handles to assist you to stand. I don't know how it work alongside a shower but worth looking into. You can also get gardening knee boards - sometimes they have handles.

    I really like the idea of the towelling rest and 'hosing them down'. Would be good to sit them on as you get in and out of the shower.
