My names David and I'm not a mom, obviously, I'm a young first time father but I would just like some input from a wide community so I thought I'd make a post here as well.
I have a year old daughter and there are several instances where I'm home alone with her but have to get ready for work. On my way to work I'd drop her off with one of her guardians etc... But as im getting ready for work and have to take a shower (usually like 30 mins) I'm not sure what to do with her since Im so paranoid to leave her alone in the room, even in her little closed off play area. Is it weird to take a bath with my daughter being that im a father?
I find it very convenient since we'll both be bathed for the day and I wont have to leave her unnattended while I get ready but at the same time feel very awkward as she is my daughter.
At the moment I just but her in her walker in the bathroom with me while i shower so I can watch her to make sure shes okay since shes very active and walking, grabbing everything she sees.
Any advice on how to handle this?
