A Bath Time Baby Gift
Most new parents and their babies love bath time. It is chance to slow
down and enjoy the wonderful tactile stimulation of water and bubbles.
It is not necessary to bathe your baby every day. Twice a week is
sufficient, along with face and bottom cleansing every day.
Here are some tips for a safe and happy bath
A wonderful baby gift for a friend with a new baby or for you and your
baby would be our DILLY THE DUCK BATHTIME SET!
- Keep the room warm and bath
water comfortably warm but not hot. If you have a bath thermometer,
warm the water to about 37 degrees C.
- For newborns and babies up to
six months old, fill the bath with about 13cm (5in) of water. Or just
make sure there’s enough to allow your baby to settle in the
water with his shoulders well covered. Never fill the bath more than
waist-high (in sitting position) for older babies.
- Bring your baby to the bath
area, undress him and remove his nappy. If there's poo in the nappy,
clean your baby’s genitals and bottom before putting him in
- Gradually slip your baby into
the bath, using one hand to support his neck and head. Keep a good
grip, as he might get quite slippery when he’s wet.
- Wash your baby with a little
mild, non-perfumed soap or pH neutral liquid baby cleanser. If your
baby's skin is dry or tender you could add a little bath emollient to
the water. The emollient will make your baby slippery to handle, though.
- Use your hand, or a flannel or
sponge, to clean your baby from top to bottom and front to back.
- Lift your baby out of the
bath, and straight onto a dry towel. Wrap him up warm and pat, rather
than rub, him dry. You may want to smooth on a mild moisturizing lotion
or cream, or oil if his skin is dry.
- Dress your baby in clean
clothes, wrap him in a dry, warm blanket, and give him a kiss on his
sweet-smelling head. (Bath time tips found at babycentre.co.uk)
