The Key Things that New Parents Must Know about Baby’s First Bath
Most parents cherish the memory of giving their baby their first bath. While this moment is certainly an important step, it also helps to be prepared especially since newborns have sensitive skin and can be prone to rashes and other skin conditions. As new parents, it is important to be ready by preparing the right materials as well as keeping the changing environment clean and comfortable.
Here are other important steps that parents need to remember:
Gather the right materials
You will need:
-1 soft cotton washcloth
-Clean blanket or hooded towel
This includes shutting off all air conditioners and fans in the baby’s changing area as well as making sure the water is the right temperature (lukewarm water is best). Before bringing your baby into the bathroom, check the water first by dipping your elbow.
Bathe them gently
Remove baby’s clothes and wrap them in a hooded towel. Expose the ones you need to clean one at a time, saving the diaper area and the hair for last.
Using a clean washcloth, wash certain areas one at a time. You can start from behind the ears then move to the neck, elbows, knees, fingers and toes. Follow by cleaning the diaper area and then finish by washing a few wisps of their hair. Wrap them in a towel and pat them dry before moving them to the changing area to get them dressed.
Bathing older babies
Older babies may start using baby bath solutions during bath time. During this stage, parents should consider using two washcloths instead of one. In one small basin, soak a washcloth in warm solution mixed with bath solution for a soapy consistency while keeping another basin warm and soap-free. Wash your baby with the same steps as before but follow it with the soapy washcloth. Rinse residue off with plain lukewarm water. The reason why parents need to maintain the same steps is so that their little ones can adjust to the new changes. During this change, parents may also introduce new products into the routine such as using lotions after bath time. While some babies may be fussy at first, it helps to bathe them gently until they get used to this routine.
When bathing a baby, parents should strictly used products that are specifically formulated for their baby’s sensitive skin. The reason for this is because soaps fit for adults contain additional chemicals that can cause irritation and discomfort. Parents should also remember not to rush the bathing process to avoid startling their children while also maintaining a safe environment.
Under no circumstances should the ever leave their child alone in the bath even if they will be back in a few minutes. Always carry the baby with you if you have to leave the bathroom to get something. While some babies can certainly be fussy, bathing them three times a week is a great way to bond while also making sure their skin gets the needed nourishment it needs.
