    Hiya! The mw told me not to have anything in my bath for the first few times.

    However when can I have a bubble bath?? I had a 2nd degree tear and is not as sore as what it was at all. I want a bath tonight with bubbles followed by a glass of wine :cloud9: Do you think I will be ok?

    I had stitches and was recommended to use Badedas bubble bath by the midwife as it helps with the healing of the stitches!
    Enjoy your relaxing, bubbly bath!!! xx

    I was wondering this as well, I had a third degree tear and was told not to use any soap products until I had healed but I have never had any pain or been uncomfortable since having them. Yay OH can have Phoebe tonight i'm having a date with my bubble bath!!

    I was advised to get some Tea Tree Oil and Lavendar Oil, mix them with a carrier oil and put that in the bath to help healing... although haven't tried it yet!!! But got it all to try :)

    I used bubblebaths just a little or as someone said the baby bath - tea tree oil in your bath helps healing too if you like tea tree x
