I was going to soak in a hot bath last night but then the baby decided she wanted to go on a nursing marathon. lol By the time she was done it was late. So, I'm going to try again tonight (I like the water too hot to bring her into the tub with me).
What exactly goes into a sitz bath? I've never needed one before.
