Small babies of 3-4 months usually have short or sponge bath sessions but right after 5 months babies love to sit in bath tubs and enjoy the everyday sessions.

Seeing the baby sitting in a tub and splashing water is an absolutely cute sight.

Tips to Keep In Mind While Giving Baby Bath

A Time For Bonding

Bath time is far more than simply maintaining and following the hygiene tips, it’s a time to relax and focus only on your baby.

The baby plays with the parent (mother mainly) allowing emotional and physical bond grow strong.

Parents value bath time a lot and according to a research about 85% parents agree that this is the best time to bond with their little ones.

Bathing is important but since it is rainy season you should follow some safety measures for kids to protect them from the seasonional infections.

 

Playtime

Babies hate to take bath alone; their toys must go with them so buy such floating toys that boost their enthusiasm.

The harder they splash, the more enjoyment they get out of doing that. Playing in water improves the hand-eye coordination and they also learn to identify body parts. Consistent bathing keeps a baby healthy and happy.

I bought lot of floating toys and use a different toy each day of the week.

 

Interaction

Cater to your baby’s special needs while bath sessions, use products that they love, that suit their skin and makes them feel fresh.

Babies respond very well when they see water around, applying the soap for the first time, first time shampoo and wearing the gorgeous bathrobe is so much fun.

I started carrying few of these items in my diaper bag as well. Read my ULTIMATE DIAPER BAG CHECKLIST FOR FIRST TIME MOMS

Touch is a very important sense organ.Parents tend to touch more while giving baby bath and this is very important for social and cognitive development.

While rubbing the baby’s skin mildly, the vagus nerve is stimulated offering much relaxation. All the senses are equally engaged during baby bath because they love smelling the products, hear the sound of water splashing and see the bubbles.

 

Daily Bath Is Great But Do Not Use Soap Daily

Bathing controls excess of oil in the hair and washes away the unnecessary moisture from the body.

Do you know that using too much soap is not good for the skin? Baby skin is very supple and soap can rip off the natural moisture and cause rashes. Even if you are using hydrating soap, daily use is not recommended.

I use a loi on my baby that keeps his skin soft and supple.

I use soap 2-3 times a week all over the body and shampoo twice a week.

Clean the diaper zone and the skin folds regularly, use soap on the palms and clean their little feet daily.

Bubble baths can cause irritation in the urethra and lead to UTI. Let them play in the beginning, use soap later, wash and pick them up from water. Play with your little ones, sing songs and make them happy.

SAFETY TIPS YOU SHOULD KEEP IN MIND WHILE BATHING YOU BABY

 

Are you maintaining safety tips while bathing? Take a look at what safety you must maintain:

  1. Always be on supervision while your baby sits in the tub inside the bathroom. Babies can get suffocated even in an inch of water. Gather all your supplies before you begin giving bath.

  2. Hold the baby’s back with one hand when in water, its very important for safety.

  3. During  winters the bathroom should be warm and it must be cool in the summers. Monsoon is a very tricky season; do not give long bath sessions this time.

  4. The baby should fit in a small bath tub but in case you are using the family tub, make sure it’s not slippery. Use a bath mat made of rubber and a comfortable spout cover.

  5. Tub should be filled with 2-4 inches of water for babies

  6. In the winter season when you are preparing warm water, dip your elbow to check the hotness of water.

  7. The baby should not stand up in the tub.

  8. Keep electrical away.

  9. Last but not the least; rather very important, do not attend any phone calls or rush to open the door leaving the baby. Either complete the bath or take the baby along in a towel.

Finally bathing the baby involves no such technology; it’s close to nature. A parent’s pure touch and warmth makes bath time special for babies.

These moments are so intimate and adorable that parents and babies both get addicted to it.

 

Bathing is best for cranky babies and bath time induces good sleeping habit. As they say babies grow fast so enjoy the cuddle and bath time as much as you can before they come out of their bath tub.
