do the baths at different times. toddler could have a bath earlier in the afternoon. I don't like the idea of bathing together before the little one can sit unaided. If bub has a regular arsenic hour, as most bubs do, try to avoid doing extra things at that time. Also try not to put too much pressure on your self. I agree bath and bedtime should be the quite peaceful part of the day, and I would try to have that flow smoothly, but we can only do what we can do. Perhaps, if the bathtime routine is too crazy, make an extra effort with the story time, make that the quite time. I always had story time with my children. Marie.
