  • No. I had the same thing happen to me today with my DS. I would either use a wet wipe or take a wash cloth and squeeze a bit of water on the spot, then wipe. That really doesn't make you a bad mom :)

  • I'd probably just try to get it out with some water ... it doesn't make you a bad mom, but I def would be too lazy to bathe him again lol.

  • I agree. Use a wet washcloth, and do the best you can. It's late... He's sleepy... It'll wait :)

  • is this a real question? If not giving your kid a second bath every time they somehow manage to get sticky after their jammies are on, then I am a BAD MOM! Try to get some rest:) Hope your son feels better soon.

  • Maybe you could use a very small amount of Purell brand alcohol hand sanitizer, scrub, and let it dry. I wouldn't use any other brand because the off brands have been found to use a type of alcohol that is impure and dangerous.

  • That still doesn't make you a bad mom. He's a kid and he's bound to get dirty a lot. Don't worry and try not to put too much pressure on yourself. No one is perfect. Best luck momma :)

  • One bath a day is enough. Try again tomorrow.

  • Yes for heaven's sake just let him go to bed. Sticky hair never killed anybody as far as I know.
