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.

We still co-shower also, but once in a while he wants a bath.

Quoting P.S I'm pregnant ♥:" In the bath tub? At all, ever?"


It depends on what age. My daighter just turned 4 and i might leave her for ~ 2 mins and then run back.
At earlier ages I'd step out of the room but only for a few seconds at a time.
