Well why else would we be bathing if it wasn't to prepare ourselves for our dh's pleasure? LOL! I only wish DH would do the same!

Yeah i take baths with dd quite often, i usually start early, so that i can wash my hair and shave, and then add dd, and then i get out and let her play in the bath while i brush my teeth and get my make up on. Its the only way i can have time to get dressed when i have to go into work.

I thought I was the only one with that excuse!

I grab a shower when I can, be it when the kids are sleeping or entertained by a movie.. although DD learned how to climb the gate, so she got in the shower w/ me yesterday~ and I will take baths w/ both kids, but don't wash my hair since I have to hold DS, and it's not a very big tub!

I'd like five minutes to get dressed after a shower! DH seems to think that when I get out of the shower and LO is crying that she needs me IMMEDIATELY! And it's his turn to shower. Meanwhile I'm standing in the bedroom dripping wet in a towel holding a screaming baby. When all she wanted/needed was to be burped or changed.

if your older one can stay occupied i would just put the baby in a swing, carseat, w/e and put the baby in the bathroom so you can keep an eye! i got a 3in1 rocker swing and when he was younger i would take the chair part off the swing (it was an infant chair) and take him in the batroom with me,,, he would just sleep... even if he was awake at 1st after a few seconds of listening to the shower and it getting all warm he would crash!
oh you could use a bouncer too! and check garge sales for them... if you get a good deal and the baby doesnt like it at least you wont be out alot of money until you can re-sell it!

Right now DS takes a shower with me prob. 90% of the time - I'm a little worried about what we'll do when #2 arrives, but these are some good ideas.

I'm one that can't stand to go more than a day without a shower, so I'll be figuring something out!

Good luck

It's sooooooooo refreshing to know that other mamas don't get showers. Heck, I only have one and it's hard to find time to bathe. There are times where I am wondering what the heck the smell is only to realize it's me.
