Almost all mothers have professed that bathing their baby for the first time was the scariest thing possible. The very idea of handling your little angel’s slipper body and wobbly little head seems unnerving as it is.
But for those who are planning to bath the baby and are worried about baby’s safety, here are a few tips which will help you.
Proper Location for bathing the baby
Get the location to bath the baby ready prior to the bath. Make it warm and comfortable not just for your baby but for yourself as well. There are special tubs designed for safety of your baby in bath . Make sure bath towels or tub liners should be places on the bottom of the surface to avoid any accidents. This is for the safety of the baby as it will eliminate the problem of a slippery surface.
Organized and planned bath for your baby
Baby bath products should be within your reach when you bath the baby. Maintain a baby kit where you can arrange baby soap and shampoo; keep cotton balls, baby skincare products and towels. Keep the kit well stocked and keep it near the place where you will indulge your baby in bath.
Fill the tub with warm water. For safety reasons it is always better to check if the water is not too hot for your little angel. Once the water and the products are arranged and within your reach, you are all ready to bath the baby.
Be ready for the bath
Remove your baby’s clothes and place your baby carefully in the warm water. Use baby wash or soap preferably on a soft washcloth. Use small amount of baby shampoo on the scalp and hair of the baby and do so gently. Keep the shampoo out of the eyes of the baby and rinse it and dry off the baby with a soft and warm baby towel.
Do not leave your baby unattended while you want to bath the baby. It is for safety of the baby that you must use clean towels, use warm water and clean the diaper area even when you just have to change the diapers.
With these safety tips in mind, you will not have to worry about your precious baby even when you have to bath the baby.
