The nanny that's working for me can't come for a few weeks because she have some personal issues that need to be solved. So It's been a week since that and i don't really know how to shower my daughter "she's three months" and i'm afraid to annoy my neighbor by asking her that. This is really isn't my thing but i'm trying my best. My parents live in another city but not that far from me but still i don't know if i can ask them that or not. And it's kind of hard to find and trust in another nanny.

You can just google search this and it might be easier. Either way, you should know how to bathe your child, so now is as good a time as any to learn! :) First of all, you don't put your kid in a shower. Gently wash her face with a soft sponge, don't get anything like soap in her eyes, obviously, keep it lukewarm water. Then you can get ready to bathe (try to run the bath beforehand so you don't end up with a naked and shivering baby). Run the bath so that it's about as warm as you'd enjoy, something nice and relaxing but not cold. Don't make the water too high. To test if it's a good temperature, then you can put your elbow in it. If it feels too hot, just run some cold water. It might be a good idea to put a cushion on the floor for you to kneel on. It is hugely important that you get towels and whatever you're going to dry your baby and put her into ready before you bathe. You cannot leave your child unattended at any point during a bath, okay? Gently support her head and back as you put her into the water, and keep her suspended whilst she's in it. Use baby soap and gently use a soft sponge to clean her. It's not difficult once you do it, just be gentle and careful of the water temperature. Sing to her or talk to her whilst bathing her to bond. If you're worried about not supporting her correctly and something happening, you can always bathe her in the sink, or you can get in the bath with her.4
