I would put my daughter in one of hte plastic baby tubs, situated on the floor, right up until she was about a year and a half old, because I also had a stand up shower. She would love to splashand play in it. I would put towels down, and she would climb in and out of it. I woudl always be sitting right there on the floor with her, and would help her if hse needed it. Be prepared to get wet, and enjoy it! It is so much fun to watch the children play like that!
