If your baby is anything like mine, he abhors the Pack 'n Play, also known as baby jail. He only understands about 10 words and neither baby nor jail are among them so quit your snarky commentary about the problem. Luckily, there is a little-known option I am sharing today. Like anything, there are some risks to the alternative pack 'n play, but they are far outweighed by the benefits, as you will easily see.
What's this you see below? The awesome Jacuzzi bath in the master bath of our new house?
Or...wait for it...
wait for it...
AN ALTERNATIVE PACK 'N PLAY!!
Yes, it's almost as concerning that the baby is the only one of us who has used this master bath monstrosity as it is that he's heading toward my 30 year-old Pound Puppy in this picture, but even as a pack 'n play, it cleanses me. With him safely crawling around and biting Brownie, I have a direct line of vision to him from the shower which means I can shower. EVERYDAY.
I hear your other concern and it's a fair one, as well. The boy has already started grabbing the handles and we are only days away from a surprise success with the faucet. This could be devastating to my system but upon further thought it aligns with my cleanliness strategy. If he gets those faucets on, he won't need a bath at night!
Move over Chicco. I've switched to Jacuzzi.
