by Sonia Singh Hi Everyone, I am Sonia. I love to read and write

To all the mothers out there—have you also envisioned your baby playing with water, bubbles and toys while taking a bath like you have seen in those commercial ads?

We are sure you have; afterall, all mothers want their little ones to giggle and smile with all their heart while they take a wash. Well, in most cases, the reality is distanced from those beautifully shot ads. There is crying, him/her clutching your hair and that constant tussle to just finish off the bathing session.

Right below, we list all the tips for new parents who wish to see their cooing baby taking bubble baths. These soul-stirring baths take much more than using the best organic baby body wash. Read on!

The right timing of giving them a bath

Until the umbilical cord falls off naturally, which takes around 1-2 weeks, a newborn is supposed to be carefully sponged with luke-warm water. During the first 1-2 weeks, the baby skin is supple and soft and applying even the mildest form of chemical can do harm to it.    

Once their naval region is healed, you can start bathing your baby once or twice a week. It is best if you put a little oil before giving them a bath. Organic coconut oil for baby hair and skin is ideal for a light massage since it’s induced with several minerals and essential oils that are good for your child.

Using the right kind of bathing bucket or tub

Bathing buckets are one of the most important elements of the bathing process. A lot of slipping and sliding accidents depend upon the kind of bathtub or bucket one is using. Take the ones that are contoured with an internal sling till your baby is about 6 months old. Once they start crawling, you should replace the tub/bucket with a studier option. 

 

Choose the right temperature for water 

If you have a baby at home then investing in a bath thermometer is absolutely legit. If you haven’t got it as yet, you can use your elbow or wrist to determine whether it is the right temperature for bathing or not. The ideal temperature should be around 100 Fahrenheit and you should swirl your hand in the bathtub to know if there are any hotspots that you were not able to detect.
