Yes both my boys love the shower. I put him in pretty much as soon as we got home from the hospital. If you have someone else with you, you can get if and wash yourself while they undress bub and bring them too you ( if your alone you can lay them on a towel just if front of the shower till your ready) he loves the water running over him so I have him over my shoulder for a bit and do a few ready set go's them put him back so his face gets wet ( wouldn't do this with a real new bub though, but have been since about 6 wks and I think it's good to get him use to water over his face especially for when we start swimming lessons at around 6 mths). I then lay him across my arm to was him.
If someone else is helping I then pass him out to them to dry and get dressed for bed, if alone I have his towel over the shower, turn water off and wrap him up and lay him on the floor while I get dry and dressed then dress him.
I put ds1 in a bumbo for shower to while I washed me but that was when he was a bit older maybe round 3 mths.
Hope this is helpful and not to much suck egg info. As I said both my ds love the shower and it is nice and quick and like all baby related topics is so individual for both baby and parents.
Same for us jamie loves the shower or bath...he'd actually try to throw his head back to catch the water spray he loves it that much. Hes always been a water baby though so that might be why. We've done the shower thing with him since 6 or 7 weeks I think.
Perfect! Zoe is 7 weeks now so I might give it a shot now I know it's not too early.
How did you go today KM?
With reflux, when you says bubs arches their back etc do they then always not want to continue to drink?
I find Zoe does that once I try to burp her but as soon as I give her the bottle back she is happy like she just wanted more food?
