Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater...

Meaning of 'Don't Throw the Baby Out With the Bathwater'


The phrase to throw the baby out with the bathwater means to discard something valuable along with other things that are undesirable.

It is a loan translation from the German phrase das Kind mit dem Bade ausschütten, literally to empty out the child with the bath, first recorded in 1512. For example, in German Literature, translated from the German of Wolfgang Menzel1. By C. C. Felton2 (Boston, Massachusetts – 1840).
