How I Manage Bath & Bedtime With 3 Children

If you’ve been a long term reader of my blog you’ll know that bath times have always been something I dread. At the moment we don’t actually have a bath, our rented property just has a shower which is perfect for me when I need to get dressed quickly but for a family with three young children, it’s hard.

I miss being able to dunk their hair under the water for a quick wash. To be able to watch them all play together. To be able to bath them every evening. For it to be fun and happy. But it’s not, it’s cold for them, they slip over, they scream blue murder when it’s hair wash time and it’s generally a stressful experience.

We shower them just once a week. This is purely because I dread the situation and any more than once is just too much but also as I don’t agree with bathing them every day. However, I’d love to do it three times a week in the future when we finally have a bath. I decided to document our Sunday bedtime with you a few weeks ago. I was so shocked as it all went super smooth with very little tears and has lead me to believe I should probably get the camera out every week.

Here’s our bed and bathtime routine for you:
