Bath Time!

Josh and I are really becoming pros at our night time routine. We are now able to feed, bathe, and change TWO babies in under an hour! I don't really know if this is good timing or not, but I think it's pretty impressive! Here's how we do it:

  1. We each feed and burp a baby.
  2. Josh gets the tub ready while I take the first baby (usually Lyla) to get cleaned up down below and get undressed. The other baby hangs out in her bouncy seat.
  3. During the bath, I'm the rinser and Josh is the scrubber.
  4. I then take the clean baby to get dried off and changed and put her down in the pack n play while Josh gets the tub ready for the next baby.
  5. And then we repeat with the second baby
It works pretty well and I can't really find any place in the steps where we could save time. Any suggestions?

Lyla about to get wet (that's a wipe covering her private area- I don't want to embarrass her too much!)

Lyla not freaking out quite yet!

Lexi ends up on a wet net since she's second. I don't think she likes it but look at that big belly!

Lyla on her way to get dressed. The picture isn't great but her face is priceless!


  1. Wow! I am impressed with your timing and routine. It takes me an hour with one baby! I love the big belly shots!

  2. Aw - they are so little. Love the bath pics, esp the last one! Seems like you've got your routine down pat! The only things DH and I do differently are that one of us is usually the bather for both babies and the other deals with undressing / dressing both.
