Stupid question lol... Do I have to rinse my baby off after a bubble bath??

I've seen in movies that when the mommies are bathing their kids with bubbles they just get a towel and take them out... I always rinse him afterwards then take him out... do i have to ?? lol just wondering. THANKS LADIES

  • Mmm.. I don't guess that it's completely necessary, but I always do. I don't get out of the tub all soapy, so I don't do that to the kiddo either.

  • Well I'm not really sure if you really need too, but I always rinsed them off, or myself even if I take a bubble bath...because I felt leaving the soap on them would dry their skin, or make them itch. I think it's best to rinse them!

  • I would rinse definitely. You never know if they urinate in the water.

  • I would rinse. I get itchy and irritated when the bubbles dry on me

  • Did you know that too much soap can even cause UTI's! seriously!

    Yes, we need to rinse our babies. The soap will dry on the skin and can cause itching and irritation.

    In the winter months a good coating of lotion after a bath will prevent dry and chapped skin.
