Bath-time is one of the best bonding times between parent and baby. We get a lot of questions about what products are essential for bathing baby.
How Often should you give baby a bath?
2-3 times a week is enough to keep your baby clean. Bathing too much can dry out your baby's skin.
Where to bath your baby?
One of our best baby baths is the Skip Hop Moby 3 Stage Bath Tub . It is the only bath tub you will need as it is suitable from birth up to 25 lbs. When its time to make the change into the big bath you might want to try a swivel seat . Some essentials we would recommend is a waterfall rinser to avoid water and shampoo going into your little ones eyes.
Water temperature should be 37-38°C invest in a thermometer to put your mind at ease
Make sure you have everything at hand - for example a towel , bath toys, lotion, clean clothes and nappy. This way you can keep your eyes and hands on baby at all times.
Place your baby in a safe area like a cot when you take him out of the bath
Take the phone off the hook or turn your phone off while bathing your baby. You’ll be less likely to get distracted.
