“My baby seems to love drinking bath water… what should I do?”  According to an American specialist, parents should definitely not encourage such behavior.  However, one need not worry as, even though bath water contain chemicals from shampoo or bath soap and will result in upset stomach, it actually helps to develop a child’s cause-and-effect ability (“drinking this water will make you feel bad”).  As most babies will eventually spit the bath water back out, even if the baby swallows the water, little harm will come in his/her way.
