Somehow I got 2 days in a row of showers. I've been trying to put Zoey down for a nap in the pack and play in the morning and getting my shower and some cleaning accomplished. It seems like in the afternoon she will only sleep in my arms so I have to do everything in the morning before I'm stuck on the couch holding a sleeping baby (which I don't mind at all)

Usually every other day. I take them at night when dh is home so I can actually enjoy them!

I try to get one when both babies are asleep and either DD is watching cartoons or napping (DS1 is at school). Some days I have to wait until DH gets home.

It goes something like this: nurse the baby as much as he'll take, hand him to DH, run to shower, inevitably when I get out the baby is hungry again because he smells me walk downstairs or something so I nurse the baby again, the end!

I wake up when DH does (6:30) and take a shower about 20 minutes after he gets out. Either that or take one after he's home. When I wake up in the AM usually the kids are still asleep.

Yup! I feed him, give him to his daddy or put him in his rocker and shower. He's usually asleep for at least an hour after I feed him so it works out well.

At first I was lucky to get 2 per week! Now I have learned to carve out some time for myself and ask DH to take her for awhile so I can shower and scarf down a little bit of food. I love my shower time but I'm always a little anxious to get back to her once it's been 20 or 30 minutes.

I have been fortunate to find time every day to shower. I do it either in the afternoon while he is napping or when DH gets home from work.

I haven't really gotten back into a shower routine with just the two it was easy. But with her I feel wary leaving her even if she is sleeping in my room in her bassinet. I should be showering when the big ones are in bed and right before Bella's last feed (which is at 11 pm every night) but I am usually too tired even for that.

I still manage to get in 2 baths a day. I really have to due to my tendon issues... I'm miserable if I don't. I take one at night when the hubs is home and one during the day while baby naps. I just put him in his car seat and bring him in the bathroom with me.

I just put Alyssa is the bouncy seat and put it in the bathroom with me, and I can take a shower.. Or my 13 y/o will sit in my bedroom with the baby and watch her while I take a shower!!

DH is still off with me, so I shower whenever I feel like it. He returns to work on Tuesday and I will likely have to wait until he gets home from then on

Dh and I take turns. I shower while he reads to the kids and then he showers. Unless I'm feeding Atticus or company that's what we do.

I'm lucky. My routine in the morning is always the same...wake up, feed her, eat breakfast, pump, take shower. DH works from home 4 days a week, so I usually give her to him and he either holds her or puts her in the bouncer while I shower. If it's a day when I'm home by myself, I put her in the bouncer. She usually fusses at first but by the time I'm out of the shower, she is asleep.

Noah goes to daycare.

A shower is an essential part of my day, so I make it happen. If DH is home, I feed Owen and hand him off. If DH is gone, I feed Owen and put him in the swing or bouncy seat in the bathroom while the girls play in their room. It's actually been easier than I thought it would be!

I typically shower in the nights when DH is home. But if for some reason I need to shower in the daytime, I put Jaxon for a nap in the crib, and take the monitor into the bathroom with me.
