Babies LOVE the soothing feel, comforting sound and shimmering spray of the hand-shower – even from birth. So use the hand shower if you want from the very beginning, and when they are ready they can use it too. You can also easily bring them into the shower with you. You don’t need to try and hold a wet, slippery baby 4 feet above the floor while using only one hand to shower yourself anymore. A note of caution here: make sure that any continuous stream of water to a baby is temperature controlled. This can be as simple as keeping a finger in the water stream or checking that your plumbing is updated to reliably maintain water temperature.
