You gotta do what you gotta do

Why yes, I did put my baby nephew to sleep in the bathtub, why do you ask? Oh, that's kind of odd? Well, desperate times call for desperate measures, my friend. 

Tired baby who is recently mobile + no pack n' play or crib = baby gets to sleep in my tub where he cannot escape or harm himself (except for possibly his eardrums. Baby cries really echo in a bathroom).
As long as I don't throw the baby out with the bathwater I figure I'm fine. Where did that expression come from anyway? There is no expression saying anything about letting babies sleep in bathtub, so I think I'm doing all right. 
You gotta do what you gotta do.

(By the way, I did not put him in there sideways like that. He wedged himself into that position all on his own. I supposed wedged is not the right word, although it does look like it. He can move, I promise.)


  1. This made me smile :) He is adorable!

  2. I have to commend you on your creativity with this one! Nice Work :D

  3. Awwwwwwwwwww. Adorable. My best friends Mom lets her grandaughters sleep in their bathtub when they have sleepovers and all the girls just love it : )

  4. The really funny thing is that usually he sleeps in my closet. It's the only room in the house that is quiet and dark. At least it is a walk in. :)

    Dana and Charley, happy to amuse you for today.

    Life with Kaishon, thanks for stopping by!Isn't it funny the things that kids find to be so cool. I love that they think it's a special treat to sleep in the tub! I stopped by your blog and got sucked in. Really great stuff!
