Newsflash: Don’t shower while your baby naps

Friends, it has recently come to my attention that many new moms believe they should shower while their baby is napping. Wrong. Don’t waste a nap on showering.

Your baby will be perfectly happy to hang out in a bouncy seat in the bathroom while you shower.

Use her nap to do something else, such as trying on everything in your closet, moving the too-small stuff out of sight, moving the too-big stuff into a pile on the floor in the corner of your bedroom, looking in the mirror and smushing down your squishy belly to see how you used to look, and bringing pre-pregnancy clothes from the garage back into the “to be tried on” pile on the floor in the corner of your bedroom.
