Hey friends, it’s Quick Tip Tuesday where I answer a quick question submitted by you, my sweet podcast listeners. If you have a question that you want me to answer on a Quick Tip Tuesday episode, just go to my website, Angel swan.com/quick tip and submit your question. So today’s question is from Brianna and she asks, How do you take a shower when your baby just cries unless you’re holding them? Okay, this is so easy, easy peasy. Okay. Your first option, which is my personal favorite, is to bring your baby into the bathroom with you while you shower. Okay, put a bouncer in the bathroom, pop your baby in there, and start running the water for your shower. Babies love themselves a mini sauna go ahead and close the door make that sauna for them. They love the sound of the running water. They like the warm steam from the shower. And if your baby gets a little lonely and they’re bouncer, you can totally peek out at them every few minutes and play a rousing game of peekaboo. I totally used to do that with Jenny. You know, just peek out from behind the shower curtain and she’d be all giggles immediately she’d be fine. And you can do all this while you’re getting clean and fresh. Right, your baby’s hanging out, you’re getting a shower, it’s a win win. Your second option is to bring your baby into the shower with you. I used to fill up Jenny’s little baby bathtub and set it on the floor in the shower. And then of course I’d put her in it. I would shower while she lounged in her tub. And she was totally content to just sit there and watch me clean myself off. She thought it was pretty hilarious. Now, if you’re going to bring your baby into the shower with you just make sure that you’re fully set up to exit the shower before you step in. Okay, this means have your towels ready to go have a safe place to set your baby. And when you’re getting out of the shower, you get out first dry yourself off. And then you pick up your baby and break them out of the shower. Because we don’t want to be stepping in and out of the shower all wet and slippery like that. It’s just dangerous. And of course, your third option is to have someone else watch the baby for you. But I’m guessing that if you’re asking me how you’re supposed to be taking a shower, you probably don’t have someone else to watch your baby while you shower. So that’s like pointing out the obvious but like, these options that I gave you are really, really great. All right, it’s really, it’s as easy as that. Okay, do not make taking a shower, one of the complicated things in your life, because you already have enough on your plate. You’re a mom, you have a baby, you’re busy lady, okay? Listen, if you take all the tips that I give you on this podcast, and you’re loving them, and you want to work with me one on one, so that you can find a balance between being a mom and being yourself.
