    My LO hasn't done that (yet).
    I'm an RN though who did 8yrs of Gastro nursing so I wouldn't be phased.
    I'd pull it out, chuck it in the toilet and get the child out of the bath.

    Edit: I'm a nurse therefore not precious about poo.

    Oh I'd also like to clarify I don't let her drink the bath water lol
    This.

    My DD would do a solid poop, so easy to scoop with no floaty bits.

    My DD went through a phase where she would poop in the bath every single night, guaranteed!

    so after the first week I got sick of getting her out, scooping poop, emptying bath, cleaning bath, refilling bath and so on so I just started the scoop and chuck, carry on.

    If in the odd chance it was multiple poops I would get her out and do the whole clean bath routine.

    This has happened to me a lot in my 6+ years of being a mum- the latest being last night and I suspect my post may have got your brain rolling

    We all get out and shower while I flush the poo, scrub the bath and clean the toys.
    And while we are on the topic, I would just like to say previous to last night the last brown bath shark was not as far back as you would think. Picture two 5 year old boys in the bath, discovering they could make bubbles when they farted...and then imagine one trying too hard... Yep. Boys.

    This happened to me a few weeks ago! I...

    Laughed and took a photo for his dad and then got him out and got him ready for bed.

    Drained the tub while I walked out.

    Once he was in bed wiped the poop up with toilet paper and cleaned the tub.

    Default WWYD: poop in the bath.

    I get the child out of the bath, stat. Strategically remove sh!t with plastic cups, poo in loo and cup in bag in bin. Except of its gone Irish stew on me, if that's the case I just pull the plug and pick up the pieces. The clean and disinfect the bath and all toys.

    If child has been in Irish stew or he's been caught throwing poo he is re-bathed. Otherwise I get him out pretty quick so don't think any harm is done and he is dressed for bed!!

    I've been caught!

    I'm a pooper scooper and keep bathing. I figure in the short time it takes me to scoop there are probably the same number of poo particles released as my kids bums would normally have on them.

    I haven't even considered this situation yet! It might depend on the poop and how close they were to being finished with their bath.

    Becca you don't want to consider it!
    These infant ones don't dissolve, they kind of just float around in the water like an oil slick, except they don't stay together, they break up and chase you to the end of the bath you were trying to hide in!

    Haha yeah I did that on my first time & then when I eventually came back to the poop it had separated and was into every inch of the bath water!!! Soo gross! 😄😄
