Splish splash, your tot's done with taking a bath! There's no set age when kids move out of the bath and into the shower, but most parents agree that there comes a time when they're ready to take over the cleansing process. Before handing the reins over, get your shower ready for your child. From kid-size shower heads and soap dispensers to hooded towels for bigger tykes, here's everything you need to get your child showering on his own!
There's nothing like a soothing bath to help clean and calm your busy tot. But if you've got a long-haired girl with knot-prone hair, all you're focused on is preparing for the final event of the day: brushing through a mass of ratty wet hair. Store-bought detanglers can be pricy — and do they really work? After a few tries, we found a recipe that does the trick and costs mere pennies to make.
