  • Let her have some fun. Make sure that she is warm enough and moisturize when she gets out.

  • Tub time is fun, but an hour is long enough. Make sure you put a little baby oil in the water if she's going to be in that long because dry skin is not fun!

  • I dont see why people say the water is bad...my dd swims for more than an hour and that water has chlorine. I think playing in water is fine just warm it back up. I would lay on the rug and read a novel if I were you..enjoy the time she is content!

  • Nope. If the water gets cold, refill the tub. It gives you time to do other things and she's having fun and keeping to herself for a while. Mine just got out actually. He had fun too!!

  • lol kids and the tub...oye! DS never wants to get out. But yeah an hour is long enough. The water is probably cold by now and her skin most likely resembles a raisin if you used bubble bath it's npt good to sit in it too long because she could get a rash

  • probbaly a lotof time in the water is bad for the skin especally in winter, but if it makes the kid happy. I have left mine in for an hour before
