Where should I put my baby while I shower?
If you need to wash up while your baby is awake, take her with you into the bathroom. A young baby is often perfectly content to sit in a bouncy chair or a car seat — placed on the floor, not on the counter. A play saucer is another great option for keeping your baby safe and occupied while you shower.
Is it safe to shower with your baby?
You can bath your baby in any room that’s warm, safe and clean – it doesn’t have to be a bathroom. You can also shower with your baby. Keep your baby’s face away from the pouring water and make sure to use warm, not hot, water.
Can you bathe a baby in a shower?
Bathing your baby or toddler in a shower is perfectly do-able and perfectly safe, with good supervision and a little planning. If your child is very young and not able to stand in the shower on his or her own, all you really need to do is get an inflatable bathtub you can put in the shower stall.
Can I leave my newborn while I shower?
It’s usually fine to leave a young baby alone in her crib while you take a quick shower, for example, but this doesn’t apply to swings and bouncy seats, which aren’t as safe. (If you’re really nervous, you can always tote baby in her car seat into the bathroom with you.)
