Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
My hubby is very much against me bringing baby girl in the tub with me. I think it would be a nice bonding experience but he thinks she is too young (15 weeks).
Any mommies out there do this yet??
I've done that several times. I wonder why he thinks shes too young? Its not like she would be floating around by herself . Obviously I prefer to take a bath on my own! but there have been a few occasions when we both needed one due to an accident and / or due to time constraints and it worked out just fine for us!
This seems to be the only way we both get a bath lol! I have found that if you put a bumpo seat in the tub it works GREAT and DD loves it!

They are not supposed to be used it the bath because they float. I know some people who are able to suction it to the tub, so I did try it once. It didn't suction in ours and floated and bobbed like crazy and was very hard to manage. WAY easier just to hold LO.
I take her in the tub with me on the rare occasion I take a bath and have been doing it for a while If DH is home he will hand her to me, then I'll call him when we're done. If DH isn't home, I put a towel in her RnP and put it right next to the tub and put her in there when she's done, then cover her with a second towel. That way she is warm and cozy for a few minutes and I can finish up and get out.
I shower with her 50% of the time. DH thinks it's weird. She LOVES it. I put her in a sling (not even a shower sling, just one I got from a consignment shop) and she hangs with me for the whole shower. It's my favorite.
I tried bathing with her once, and it was an insane POTA. They're so slippery, you can't wash yourself, and it's definitely a two person job. I really suggest the shower sling (or regular sling you don't care about getting wet). It's the best and easiest. You both get a good wash, and if your LO is anything like mine, she'll love it!
