  • Soak him in the tub. It may take a few washes to get it all off, but that's the only way we ever found was to keep washing.

  • LOL.. Sorry, I had to laugh. Oh those were the days. My daughter did that, as well as cut her own bangs. I saw a video of a toddler that marked up his new baby brother... OMG that was sooo bad. Put him in the tub, try scrubbing him with toothpaste.. YUCK I know, but I hear it gets everything off.

  • LOL.... most of us moms have lived through this. just wash the child as normal and it'll eventually come off. not a big deal. I see no reason to scrub your little one too much, as long as they were non-toxic.
