When you do bath your baby you may find it a little scary the first few times. Try to stay calm and keep a firm hold of your baby when moving his/her in and out of the bath. You may like to have someone with you the first few times to support you and to fetch any items you may have forgotten.

To bath a slippery newborn baby can be a nerve-racking experience. Your baby may not like it much,too. With a little practice, however, you'll both start to feel more comfortable at bath time. Start by learning baby bath basics which you canbe told by your doctor or by reading some books on this topic.

Can my baby have a bath straight after he's born?

Your baby won’t have a bath straight after he’s born because he’ll need to stay warm. Your midwife will just wipe and dry your baby using clean, warm towels.

Also it is important to remember until the umbilical cord falls off, you should not give the baby a tub bath at all. The baby should be given sponge baths until then. :!: :arrow: After the cord has fallen off, you may begin tub baths.

Important to know that newborns do not need to be bathed everyday. If you are changing the baby as soon as the diaper is soiled and wiping off the baby’s hands and face each time you change his diaper, your baby only needs a bath two or three times a week. Bathing your baby more often can dry out his skin. After your baby starts crawling around and getting into things, he should be bathed every day. :idea:

the first bath is very important. you should be patient, talk to your baby warmly and kindly. if you are scared, better ask for help. the important thing is your baby should not get scared, otherwise you will have problems with bathing later. after the umbilical cord has fallen off, the first bath can be taken. the water temperature for the first time should be 36,6C. you can use special herbs for babies ( i used camomile) pr special products for babies .the first bathing should not be long.the towels should be soft, warm. and after the bath the babies should eat..and then sleep ;)

Hi, girls! It is very important topic, cause most of the cases bathing a newborn is like nightmare for parents) But it is not so difficult if you know all needed details. Of course I will recommend you to watch video, but I can give you some recommendations) For the first week or so it's best to give your baby sponge baths with a warm, damp washcloth. Wash his face and hands frequently, and thoroughly clean his genital area after each diaper change. And remember, only after umbilical cord dries up and falls off you can start tub baths.

And don’t bath your baby too often, it can dries out her skin. Some babies cry through the whole bath, so 5 minutes is enough to bath your child) When you do bathe your newborn, you may find it a little scary at first. Handling a wiggling, wet, and soapy little creature takes practice and confidence, so stay calm and maintain a good grip on her. Never leave your baby unsupervised, even for a minute. If the doorbell or phone rings and you feel you must answer it, scoop him up in a towel and take him with you. Never put your baby into a tub when the water is still running. (The water can quickly get too deep or hot.) Set your water heater to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. A child can get third-degree burns in less than a minute at 140 degrees. Never leave your child unattended. (Yes, it's so important we listed it twice). A child can drown in less than an inch of water—and in less than 60 seconds.
