Never in the bathroom, and never outside. Sometimes I will be in the kitchen doing dishes or cooking, and he is in the living room. My back is turned, but I can still hear him, and I can turn around and see him. Or sometimes we will be in the livingroom, and he runs into his bedroom for a minute. Again I can hear him, and its only for a minute, but thats about it. He is 17 months old, and our house is as baby proofed as it can get.

Never. He's bad enough when I'm sitting right there trying to wash him. He slips all over the place, hits his head on the side of the tub on purpose, throws himself backwards, and tries to belly flop in the water. Lol. I will be so glad when he's old enough to stand in the shower and not fall.

Quoting Jillian Lindsey:" to grab a towel in the hall closet yes but its 2steps outside the bathroom"

I don't have a toddler myself, but while babysitting I've definitely had an "oh shit I forgot to grab a towel" moment or two. So I had to run down the hall to go get them. But unattended completely? Never.

Yeah, basically every time he takes a bath I forget something. Towel, washcloth, etc. He's three.

I leave my 3 and 4 year old alone in the tub, i'll usually be doing something around the house and i can always hear them, i'll check on them every few minutes or call their names and they answer. I usually start their bath, wash their hair and watch and make sure they wash their body completely and then they play for a little bit and get out.

Exactly what I do, I'm never ever out of ear shot and I'm constantly calling his name. I walk in every 3-5 minutes even if I hear him. My house is tiny tho when we move into a bigger place in December I probably won't as much unless he is showering.

It helps that they are ALWAYS loud when in the bath, so even if i'm not right next to the bathroom i can always hear them since our house isn't huge. I didn't start leaving them until my middle child turned 3 and she'll be 4 in January.

Anabell almost never takes baths, but when she does I usually fold laundry in the room across the hall from the bathroom- and we talk the whole time. I've done that for the past 6 months or so. She's like Jaidis- super loud and likes to play.



We usually co shower still though but If I get out to get our towels or something I never leave her alone in the shower for more than like a minute max- I'm afraid she would fall.
