5 Skin-Safe Bubble Baths For Babies & Kids — Plus Tips From A Derm
by Andrea Pyros
Getting children to stop whatever fun thing it is they’re doing and hop into the tub can be a challenge, which is why bubble baths are such a useful tool to keep in your parenting arsenal. After all, bubbles equal playtime, not boring old cleaning-up time. When shopping for the best bubble baths for kids, it’s important to choose a gentle formula that won't irritate their sensitive skin (going the fragrance-free, sulfate-free route is always a good place to start), such as the kid-friendly bubble baths listed ahead.
Board-certified pediatrician Dr. Amna Husain, with whom Romper spoke for this article, recommends keeping bubble baths to an occasional — not everyday — activity, to avoid causing skin and/or vaginal irritation.
In addition to using gentle bubble bath products and making them a "sometimes" occurrence, it's smart to do a post-bubble bath rinse under the shower to remove any residual soap from your child's body, says Dr. Husain. And since soapy suds make tubs even slipperier than usual, it's important (like always) to supervise your children the entire time they're in the bath.
