Ds (18m) cut his finger on glass, it's not deep at all, just a small (tiny!) top layer of skin grazed / sliced off. It bled like crazy!! The only way we got it to stop was thankfully it was his nap time and all the crying made him fall asleep so I was able to apply pressure.
So it's still fresh but not bleeding.
He needs a bath tonight as he didn't last night (we had a function and he slept at my mums).
Will the bath cause it to bleed again? If it bleeds I wont be able to stop it again as he rips bandaids off and it's hard to hold him still to apply pressure.

I'm a rn and when we shower people at work who have wounds/ plaster casts on we place a plastic bag and tie it up the top with tape. Works well.
You could use a plastic coles bag.

Maybe a shower would be better until it starts to heal.
