@Quietserenity:  Do you have a sliding shower door? Like to where you can keep one side open and put her in a swing or a bouncer so she can see you? That’s what I did with my daughter, but sometimes you just have to let them scream. It is good for them to learn to calm themselves down.

Just do it quick. Or do a wash over with a facecloth, if you can’t stand her screaming. When hubby comes home, take a shower then? Or is he away?

Get in the shower as soon as she is asleep. She must nap for at least 15 minutes at some time during the day. Even if she does wake up, it’s not going to be the end of the world if she cries for a couple of minutes. She will be safe in her crib.

How long do you shower for?!  A quick one could really be like only 5 minutes.  She doesn’t nap for that long or she can’t cry for even just those couple minutes? :/

I’d put her in the bathroom, take my shower, and let her scream. Probably by the 2nd or 3rd time you do it, she’ll be used to it and won’t scream. You’ve got to be able to shower!

Agreed.  That’s what I’d do.  Although it sounds like the dog is quite helpful too!

I have a 4 month old but I hop in the shower about 30 min after I put him down for the night so around 8pm I shower.  I want to be sure he is seriously asleep and know that I will have more time to actually enjoy my shower if I do this instead of rushing during nap times.  Just an idea.  My hair is better if I shower in the morning but I would rather get a good shower in than worry about how perfect my hair is.
