ds1 has pooed in the bath sad He's taken a whole load of plastic figures in there, played with them and there's faecal bits floating around in there now.

I've drained the bath, swilled him down with warm water and am now refilling it with disinfectant in.

I'm disgusted angry

Oh dear. Do you have a dishwasher? Small boys require abgentle cycle

StealthPolarBear Mon 17-Sep-12 20:39:36

With no detergent btw

Followed by the microwave.

He's not a small boy, he's 14!!! He has man bits and everything. I'm embarrassed having to swill him down blush It's awful. No more baths sad

I'd wash him in the bath with the toys, using dettol (or similar!). Yuck. Somehow we managed to avoid this over the years, but I feel for you.

LadySybildeChocolate Mon 17-Sep-12 20:42:38

He's 14 shock Is this usual behaviour?

TheCalmingManatee Mon 17-Sep-12 20:43:09

disinfectant? nooooo - you need to use pure bleach!

seriously though, tis only a bit of poo - drain the bath, clean it out, shower DS down or re bath and give the toys a good wash in dishwasher or just use washing up liquid or a bit of disinfectant for the TOYS

hiddenhome Mon 17-Sep-12 20:44:04

The toys have been chucked.

He's done it all his life LadySybilde sad I thought he'd grown out of it though.

TheCalmingManatee Mon 17-Sep-12 20:44:14

Gosh, hes 14? is he ok? might he have a bit of a tummy bug do you think?

Socknickingpixie Mon 17-Sep-12 20:44:54

jesus wept how about a bit of sympathy for the lad,its not a normal thing for a 14yo to do, is he ill or something? i bet hes mortifyed

TheCalmingManatee Mon 17-Sep-12 20:45:25

Does he have special needs? sorry, but its not normal for lads of 14 to be pooing in the bath. Are you getting support?

YouBrokeMySmoulder Mon 17-Sep-12 20:45:57

It has happened a few times here. We just chuck all the toys and clean the bath. No biggie. No need to be disgusted either, in fact at 14 he can clean it himself so that's even better.

socknickingpixie - i think the OP sounds at the end of her tether over this, lets not give her a hard time

pigletmania Mon 17-Sep-12 20:47:20

Has he got sn, sounds like he has

hiddenhome Mon 17-Sep-12 20:47:33

He's now going mad because he read the disinfectant bottle and it has do not allow contact with skin written on the label hmm I told him I had considered using bleach!

CSIJanner Mon 17-Sep-12 20:47:54

Warm baths help with movements. Be thankful there weren't bubbles. Makes it worse to scrub down

hiddenhome Mon 17-Sep-12 20:49:06

He's cleaning the bath out now sad

squeakytoy Mon 17-Sep-12 20:49:50

warm soapy water is all that is needed to clean it off.. you really dont need to use disinfectant on his skin

YouBrokeMySmoulder Mon 17-Sep-12 20:50:47

I would just use baby wipes. That's what they're made for after all.

LadySybildeChocolate Mon 17-Sep-12 20:51:44

Has he been assessed as having SN? sad

Socknickingpixie Mon 17-Sep-12 20:52:11

i was actually aiming that at the people surgesting he go in the dishwasher or microwave and bleach.
it was blatently obvious the op was probally at the end of her tether and probally needed a more supportive approach than those surgestions

pigletmania Mon 17-Sep-12 20:53:12

My dd5 has ASD and has a habit of poo in swimmingpool

sleepybump Mon 17-Sep-12 20:53:58
