  • they can cause irritation ... however if you are using baby shampoo as bubble bath, that would probably be OK.

  • Mr Bubble sells a sensitive formula. My son has them frequently and we have never had a problem. I think some kids (just like some adults) are just more prone to UTi's and those are the ones who should stay away from bubble baths. I figured we would give him bubbles unless and until there was a reason not to.

  • We rarely do bubble baths. I'll get natural bubble bath stuff to put in Easter baskets and to use as stocking stuffers, but they are not an every day thing. They can be too harsh for kids. I couldn't have bubble baths when I was a little because they caused rashes.
