When my twins boys were at this age and a few months older, I put them on their bouncy chairs while I showered. I made sure I had the bathroom door opened and could also see them from my shower. Every now and then I would peak over and look at them. They are 20 months old :)

Yes as long as she is strapped securely in a bouncer or a car seat.
Always have the fan on (if have one) to remove any steam & keep the door open - place her only just in the bathroom so not to near the bath/shower.
I had to as was on my own at the time & even if had a partner most of the time they would be at work when need to shower.
Bathing with babe is a good bonding method - wash hair beforehand so its out of the way, don't feel the bath up too much & only at the temp for the baby.
All the best.

honestly that's the only way you'll get to shower if you're alone a lot like i was. i waited til my baby was asleep and put him in his car seat and then put him in the bathroom with me, left the door open, and not too much steam just in case it would bother him and he was fine. i did make sure my bathroom was clean though and free of any cleaning chemical fumes. right after i had my baby taking a shower was really important to me, it really helped me to feel refreshed and stay sane when i was barely sleeping.

One things I've also done (if you have a shower/tub) is to quickly wash my hair over the side of the tub and then fill up the bath and bathe with my 3 week old. I love the bonding time we get together, baby gets clean and mom gets clean. Just be sure not to fill the bath too much or too warm and never leave your baby unattended in/near water. My daughter loves mommy/baby bath times!

I've done the same, I've kept the door open to the bathroom and pulled her Rock n' Sleeper to the doorway.
She adored the sound and loved the steam. I didn't enclose her in the actual bathroom though in case the steam got to be too hot or too much for her to breathe.
