Toddler in a Shower-Only Home?

Good Questions

Q: My partner is going to have her 3-year-old daughter stay with us, and she has only taken baths at this point in her life. We only have a standing shower and no tub. We have looked online and seen some of the options out there and are looking for some more:

The Bibabath is a little pricey, inflatable tubs are too unstable for her to play in, and all of the plastic baby baths are too small. We know we can stick her in a plastic bin, but are looking for a better option... I would love to hear what people have done. Like I said before, she has only had baths and doesn't like the water to touch her head more than it has to, so teaching her to shower at this point is not really an option.
