    Default What do you do with your baby/toddler while you're in the shower?

    I usually leave Lily in the lounge room with some books and toys, make sure all the windows and doors are locked, and leave the bathroom door open.

    But I get so paranoid, I usually end up running out, dripping with water, shampoo in my hair, shaving cream all over my legs, 2 minutes into my shower to check on her!

    Only to find her reading quietly to herself on the couch (LOL, she must think I'm crazy!)

    What do others do?

    I usually try to leave it for when she is in bed but when I have to I sometimes pop her in the shower too or pop her in her high chair in the bathroom with toys.

    If my wife or I are home alone with our son, who is 16 months, and we need to have a shower, we'll normally just sit him on the bathroom floor with a bunch of toys. That way we can see him so we know he's ok, and he can see us, so he knows where we are.

    Seems to work for us.

    I'm a paranoid mummy because I know I have one very cheeky monkey on my hands who will take any opportunity to get into mischief. Still at nearly 5 years old he's either in the shower with me, with DH or asleep.

    I either wait until Skye has a nap (I put a dvd on for Hayley or she comes into the bathroom with me and we talk) or I wait until Grant comes home so he can watch the kids. I very rarely have showers in the morning.

    our ensuite has a very long shower, so I sit Gizaiah at the back of the shower with all his bath books and toys. So once I finish washing then its bubs turn to get scrubbed.

    I popped them in the exersaucer when they were younger, in the swing when they were little bubs (if they weren't asleep). At 3.5 years and 19 1/2 months I just close the doors to the rooms that should have constant supervision (laundry/toilet and our room) and then let them go. Our bathroom is central to the house so I can hear them playing, or they watch ABC kids.
    For a while with DD1 I got up and showered before she woke up. We lived in a different place then and you couldn't hear anything from the bathroom.
