The bath is a place of solace for babies, where they can make bubble-bath beards and write cryptic messages out of foam letters. If your place doesn’t have a tub, they can still experience the magic — you just have to get creative.
Check out this mum’s solution. She simply places a small inflatable pool in the shower.
“The best part is that the little ones can splash all they want and the floor stays dry,” she writes on Instagram. I love that you can keep them contained while keeping an eye on them.

The hack comes in especially handy when travelling. As for the clean-up, the mother writes, “We pull the plug of the pool and then lift the pool so the water can run down. However, we’ve started to involve our daughter, she loves to pour water, so we gave her a little bucket to pour the water into the corner where the shower drain is, that helps a bit.”
A few other ways to make bath time more victorious: Give them a toothbrush to do some scrubbing (toddlers love to clean), use a laundry basket to keep toys within their reach, and blow in their faces to make them more comfortable going underwater.
