If they've been sluiced down in the shower at the pool afterwards but not washed with soap etc?

no, but they usually take in shampoo

ChupitosGalore Sun 14-Sep-08 11:32:43

mine usually want bath at night to play in as part of their bedtime 'routine'. but i wouldnt insist, no.

No, not until bathtime at night.

At night before bed yes.

Quick spalsh under the shower at the pool, but dont do soap/shampoo etc there.

Save it for home where we have more control over the situation!

No, just wait 'til bedtime.

Yes, I take shampoo and shower gel and give her a wash there. Saves doing it when I get home.

Do it at night-time as usual too. Can't bear the potential tantrum at the pool, amplified by the tiles.

Bath at bedtime as usual with a hairwash. Don't think it's reasonable to do thorough soap & shampoo after swimming lessons when showers at our pool are in short supply.

I think it is a good idea to get rid of the chlorine as soon as you can

MingMingtheWonderPet Sun 14-Sep-08 18:37:46

Wash hair at swimming, so really doesn't need another bath in the evening

cheekysealion Sun 14-Sep-08 18:38:20

proper shower at pool...

wouldnt do it again at home

Thanks for your replies - I meant that night at the 'usual bath time' rather than immediately after swimming - my ambiguous OP!
