Which does your LO prefer?

Drake was always a tubby baby until recently. He used to take showers with me all the time when he was little but since he could sit up he's taken a bath. Well the last few weeks he has been walking into the bathroom while I am in the shower (same for DH) and will walk in. In my bathroom it's a stand up shower so he can just hop in whenever. But anyways, he LOVES it! He sits on the floor and splashes and plays with his trucks. He will stand up and twirl around and make a bunch of noises. So what I started doing was, taking my shower, then when I get out to get dressed I put the shower head to face the wall, open the curtain and just let him play while I get all done.

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

I shower with both of them most mornings. I can barely get any water because they're both so content crowding up under the water.
They like baths too, but not quite as much. Fortunately I can adjust the water pressure on the showerhead so that it can take up to 30 minutes to fill up the tub.

Oh that stinks that it takes so long to fill it up. Poop.

Me and Drake have been outside almost all day, and we just came in and I put him in the shower and I cleaned my bathroom while he was in it. I feel so accomplished!

oh no! It's a very good thing. I can sit back and relax for almost an hour while they're happy as can be with the tub sloooooowly filling. It's awesome
I can set it to go fast too, when I want it to.

They do either. But I normally give them a bath together because they like to splash and play. Callen goes through phases sometimes he loves the shower and other times he hates the water spraying on him. Silly guy.

Yay for relaxing or getting things done while kids areo in the shower!

Right now L hates baths but loves to shower while I hold him. I'm sure he will like a bath when he can sit up and play with toys.

Eve loooooooves her baths!! And her showers!!

80% of the time she will have a bath and the rest she showers with me (or sometimes Scott).

And like you Jess, at the end when I'm drying myself, I turn the shower head away from her and leave her to play in the warmth

Nope, Pea likes her baths. Daddy tried to shower with her and she just cried! So there will be no more of that

Both kids prefer baths but we take showers with them every once and a while, mostly when we want to get them clean quickly. Nathaniel hates the shower (because he doesn't like water on his face) and Norah is pretty 'meh' about it.

Sarah, that's why Drake has his own bathroom. I feel like it's dirty for him to sit in a tub that we wash in. I'm weird. But, he likes showers with us too sooo maybe that is the same thing? Gah. Drake likes any water though. If he sees a puddle outside (from the sprinklers) he will run to it and play in it for like 5 minutes.

Liam likes baths and showers, he just loves the water. And Noah doesn't like water on his face so he screams in the shower. I usually end up just giving both of them baths

Same here Jess. My kids are obsessed with puddles. If we go somewhere and there are puddles theu have to splash in every single one. I was letting them splash in puddles outside publix one time and some lady said to me you are a bad parent they are going to catch a cold and they are getting all wet. I said they are having fun and they aren't gonna get sick we live in florida it was like 85 degrees out. I don't know why people have to but in. Geez.

I'm glad to see someone else cleans the tub before you put him in there. When I was staying with my Mom I did that every time before I put Drake in the tub and you could totally tell she was insulted. What the F is wrong with my family?...
