Same with me. Showers either were done as family time, me, LO & dad together, or I'd put him in the bouncy seat in the bathroom.

When we had our second, it just became the shower round. Dad would get in, scrub himself, then I'd put our oldest in with dad to scrub. By the time he was rinsed, I'd get him wrapped in his towel, dad would step out, and I'd step in with LO, scrub him up, rinse, hand him to dad, and do my shower. All in all, the family shower round usually still was done w/in 1/2 hour.

Yes, its perfectly understandable that you're not comfortable with your current solution...I actually had to have one of my neighbors tell me "honey, you CAN take a shower...just put him in his bouncy seat in the room with you"...giggling the whole time...we all go through it with our firstborn!

I did the same thing as Jodi. I usually brought them into the bathroom with me and popped them in their exosaucer, or waited until my hubby got home to watch them.
Got a lot more interesting when I had more than one though XD Then the oldest would go IN the shower with me, and the little one would go in the saucer :P
Or, I would wait until nap time, get in and out and tra la la, baby never even noticed :P

That being said, there were times when I wouldn't/couldn't take them in with me. And your sister is right. Crying for a few minutes is NOT going to hurt her.

I used to take my kids into the bathroom with me in their bouncer. That way I could talk to them while I had a shower. Either that, or I just waited until my husband got home.
