What do you do if your babe poops in the bath?

My 10 month old has pooped in the bath a few times. Luckily, he's got solid poop. The first time I took him out, wrapped him in a towel, put him in his crib, washed his tub, and ran another bath. Major pain, not to mention I was worried about him catching cold. The next few times I just got him out of the water immediately and washed his hands and face in the sink. What would/do you do?

  • I wrapped the baby in a towel, emptied the tub with one hand and rinsed it, and refilled it. lol Luckily it only happened a couple of times.

  • LOL my son has pooped once... we let him finish first and then took him out washed the tub and ran new water.

    But I don't know how you think he would catch a cold... colds are from viruses...

  • My 1.5yr old has done this, I just take her out, clean the tub then run the shower to clean her up!
