Babies don’t actually need a ton of washing – every few days is fine in the beginning. And you won’t actually give your baby a true bath until after the umbilical cord falls off. But whether or not your little one has graduated from sink baths to tub baths yet, there are some must-know tips that will always apply.
- Don’t forget to test the water. Sure, a finger test can work, but consider a handy floating thermometer to be absolutely sure the water’s just right.
- Start by rinsing your baby’s body, then work your way to the face. End by washing the hair – a wet head can be chilly.
- Protect baby’s head from bumps and bruises with a simple faucet cover. (You’ll thank us later.)
- Stock up on soft organic cloths and natural sponges. They make it easy to wash tiny body parts and are way more sensitive on delicate skin.
- Choose chemical-free, hypoallergenic shampoos and soaps. They’ll help soothe and treat common baby skin ailments like eczema and cradle cap.
