  • Urine is sterile, so no worries there. And If he poops, my guess is you'll be hauling your butt outta there with lightening speed. Lol...

  • My mum bathes with my son and my brothers kids while they are little. my son was 2 weeks old and bathing with her. i have done it, but personally prefer a shower. Our tub is small, that's probably why. But no, to answer you question, if they pee you aren't going to get an infection. Pee is sterile. Pooping, no infection that I know of, cause you are surely washing yourself in clean water once you clean the poop out and refill the tub LOL The pooping is just more yucky and smelly to us than pee LOL

  • I didn't bathe with them, but I did put them in the bath seat in the shower with me. Hell, sometimes if I have to, I put my toddler in the shower with me still, with some toys!

  • I bathed with my mom while I was little and as far as I know she never got any kind of infection.
