How to Bathe Twins

This was one of the things I thought about a lot before the twins were born. The logistics of how, exactly, was I going to bathe them both myself, and keep them together? (mostly a safety issue with the other kids around.)

Turns out it's not too difficult, as long as you have a decently sized bathroom, a big changing pad on the floor and a bouncy chair. And the bathtub, of course. 

Since our two are distinctly different looking, this doesn't happen in our house...

So once we get all set up - two sets of clothes, diapers, warm water, towels, soap, sponges, one baby on the changing pad (1st to be bathed) and one in the bouncy chair (next in line), it's just a matter of keeping them both happy while being washed, or waiting. 

Unless, of course, this happens...

And we all know you shouldn't wake a sleeping baby...


  1. Oh goodness! All the logistics of twins! Did sleeping baby get woken up for a bath?

    Thanks so much for joining our link up!

  2. I am just in absolute awe of people who have twins. Seriously. I want to sit at your feet and soak up all your deep wisdom and experience.
    And you have older children, too?

  3. What a great post! Moms of multiple HAVE to be organized to survive and this is a wonderful way for ALL moms to remember to be organized especially at bath time! Thanks!

  4. Ha, this is why we almost never bathe our twins! It's getting more frequent now that they're eating more solids, and we made the mistake of letting them BOTH play in the tub together the other day... Never again! At least with my older kids, they know better than to try to stand up in the tub!

  5. Oh my goodness that is so funny! Was that a ploy to get out a bath?


Thanks for stopping by. Comments make me smile!
