thanks! I will try the water draining thing... no room for a pool, and she hates the shower. Co Bathing would really be the solution to this, but isnt practical with a special needs 3 1/2 year old and a 7 month old as well... I don't have time to take a shower until the older 2 are in bed and my DH is awake and able to watch the baby while I shower if he wakes up. I do sometimes co sleep with my youngest when the older 2 are in bed - but that doesnt really resolve the issues with my dd... unless I bathe her after I put my oldest to bed? that could be a solution to that problem, but probably create another problem in itself as we finally found an ideal bedtime routing... thanks for the reply!
