Can I use dettol to bath my 1 year 3 months old baby? Lately I don't trust how good our bathing water is so I am tempted to pour a few drops of dettol into her bathing water.

Yes, you can add few drops of dettol but not on daily basis.
It's ok but avoid that water to go in eyes.
It is not necessary to use Dettol. it is better and safer to use any mild soap for bathing.
Yes definitely.
Unnecessary exposure to antiseptic is unwarranted in my opinion. Intact natural skin is an excellent barrier for germs.
Yes you can but protect eyes from it and preferably try for bathing milks that are better for baby skin and does not even harm eyes of baby....
