about bathing my baby in Mexico when we go away to Cancun. Has anyone gone there and had to bathe their baby?

  • When my friends family went there, they said they just used bottle water and took sponge baths since the water is horrible down there.

  • As long as you don't drink the water, you're fine.

    If you feel weird about it...take bottled water and warm it up

  • Most of the hotels in Cancun filter their water. I still wouldn't drink it but bathing in it should be fine.

  • I agree with other posters, it should be fine to shower in but not to drink. Especially hotel water. We went to Rocky Point and had to shower in a public stall with a pull cord, that was freezing cold water, but nothing happened.
