    Default Need tips! Toddler won't let me shower:(

    That's what Playschool is for.

    I know no tv under 2 but that half hour in the morning is bliss and I really don't think it's damaging DS at all.

    I've tried this - have a tv in my bedroom (next to ensuite/shower) but DS just isn't interested! He has to be in the ensuite with me.

    Normally I wait until she is a sleep, but I couldn't today, so I had some toys and food in the bathroom for her. She wasn't interested and kept trying to open the shower door, so she came in with me and loved it. I have done the highchair trick during breakfast or lunch time as well, if that's an option for you.

    I'm also not interested in getting up at 5.30 just to have a shower, or wait until lunch when he goes to sleep.

    ATM, he is happy being entertained with a big box of cotton buds! He loves tipping them all out and putting them all back in etc Otherwise I let him play in my 'hair' draw, my brushes, ties etc that are all safe, but usually a 'no go zone'. So he thinks he has won a battle IYKWIM. Keeps him entertained long enough for me to shower on my own.
    That is hilarious i thought i was the only one who did that she's only just gotten bored of the cotton buds haha it lasted so long! I think I'll try the drawer thing tomorrow but I just know she'll either try jump in with me anyway or try jump in the toilet! She loves water it's crazy I found her standing in the dogs water bowl yesterday lol

    My DD for some reason will not watch tv I've tried putting wiggles play school and music but she just won't watch it for longer than maybe 10 seconds! She rather smash on my back door to let her out with the dogs.

    I think tv would be great for 5 minutes a day so I can showerrrrrr!!

    I stopped having a shower in the morning for this reason, I would have one when the kids were asleep (naps or bedtime). It took a bit of getting used to not showering first thing but it was the best option for me

    LoCo, our DDs sound so similar. Mine insists on being in the bathroom with me and keeps opening the shower door. She hates actually being in the shower while it's on though, but is obsessed with standing in there when it's not running. Weird little munchkin. She also bangs on the back door wanting to go play with the dogs and always goes straight to their water bowl.

    I just try to distract her by talking, singing, giving her toys and books and just basically try to be as quick as I can.

    I got a non slip mat for the bath from kmart or big W.
