Sharing Bathtime

I had my first baby in February in Montreal and I can tell you the whole house was freezing. She cried when I bathed her in the kitchen and even when I turned up the heat in the bathroom. I didn’t want bath time to be a bad experience, so I thought about what I could do to make it better.

When I brought her in the tub with me, I wondered what other people would think, but she loved it! I made the room warm, made the water deep and held her on my lap. It was relaxing for both of us! When she was very little and couldn’t hold up her head, she was a very slippery little bundle. I needed to hand her up to her dad before I could get out of the tub. He stood there with a towel and started to dry her while I stood up. We played with toys when she was a toddler and later we brought in her baby sister--who never went in the countertop tub. And they still like to hop in a nice warm bath before bed!
