Baby and bathwater

Posted by Jose Carlos on December 10, 2004

Hi again:

Probably this cliche - don't throw the baby out with the bathwater - has already been on the spotlight here, but I simply wonder what origin it has and what the exact meaning is. Can you give an actual example of usage?

Thanks,

Jose Carlos
