Do 2 year olds take a bath or shower?

My 21 month son currently takes baths in our Primo Eurobath (Birth-24 months).  My son will be 2 years old old at the end of May, and I just wondering what other 2 year olds do.

  • My 2 year old mostly takes baths. But sometimes she wants to take showers like mommy and daddy. This is a very rare occasion.

  • All of mine, including my 4 yr old bathe together.  They are afraid of the shower.
    If you really want to be happy, no one can stop you.

  • My son does both...has for many months now. But when he's in the shower, I still make him sit down on the mat I got for his baths so he can't slip and fall. It's just faster sometimes. He really likes it and has started putting his head under the water sometimes.

  • DS takes baths, he hates showering.
  • Usually a bath, but once in a while she showers with me. She prefers the bath, but likes the shower, and it's nice to have her used to it for time when we visit family who don't have a tub.

  • sometimes showers, sometimes baths....depends on what they (I have a 3yo and a 2yo) want to do and how much time I have to do it in :-)

  • Bath. But the shower head freaks her out. Even when I just turn it on to rinse out the tub after cleaning it.

  • At 2.5 he just started to love showers....so he takes both.  Before this he was scared of the shower.

  • We are still mostly showers (have been since birth - I used a shower sling) but our old house did not have a working bath tub so showers were just easier. :) If she gets a bath now she'll play in the tub for a bit and finish off with a shower.

  • Tegan mostly takes baths, but will occasionally shower with DH or myself. We also have a removable shower head in both bathrooms, so I do sometimes use the removable shower head to rinse her off after bathtime.

  • DD takes mostly baths. She will take the occasional shower, but only with DH or me.

  • Depends. DH works Fri-Sun at night, so if I am scheduled to work on a Monday, those days are hectic (I don't go in to work until afternoon). While DH sleeps, I am in charge of both girls and also getting ready for work. I have found it easier to put DD#2 in her bouncer, jumperoo, pack n play, etc. in the bathroom with us, and put DD#1 in the shower with me. That way, I don't have to worry about both of them being unattended while I shower, and DD#1 gets her bath for the day, so one last task for DH to do while I'm at work. I have noticed that her eczema has not been as bad since we started doing this also.

  • Both. He likes to bath but has bad eczema so we limit that to maybe once or twice a week. Otherwise he showers with one of us,new have been showering with him since he was maybe 6 weeks old so he is used to it. He puts his head under and has no trouble he has showered alone once or twice but it's so easy if we are both home to just hand him off to the other person. Usually DH showers with him while I do my hair and make up and then I take him and dress him while DH finishes getting ready.

  • up until a few months ago I let DS shower with DH or myself in the morning.

    Now that DD is big enough to go in the bathtub with DS, we just bathe them together.

  • My daughter does both. She used to be terrified of the shower, but we had to shower her off before her swim lessons and she got used to it. Now she loves to shower, and will often choose to shower over a bath.

    This. 

  • We too have a promo and used it until dd was 18 months. We went on vacation and couldn't take it and so we bathed her in the normal bath and she loved it!!! That's what we've done ever since. She also will take a shower with me every once in a while but there is one rule, she must sit!

  • DS is almost three and still takes a bath.  Mostly because he enjoys playing in the bath we haven't pushed for a shower.
