New parents, need to get to know your baby first. Often they are still unsure. Also, in terms of bathing the baby, there are many questions.
How often should you bathe your baby? How do you keep it safe? And where is the best place to bathe?
How Do I Keep My Baby Safe?
Especially in the beginning, it is difficult to develop a sense of how best to hold your baby. For example, you can wash your baby together with your partner. In doing so, one of you can place his or her hand under the baby’s head as a support and hold the shoulders with the other. You can then do the washing, for example.
If you have any concerns, or questions, contact your midwife.
Where Is The Best Place To Bathe My Baby?
There are special baby bath tubs that are perfect for this. Very small babies, you can also still bathe in the sink. Also in a bath bucket, your child can feel comfortable. Normal bathtubs are rather less suitable. Here you first have to lean awkwardly over it, or kneel. Both are not very comfortable in the long run.
What Is The Best Time To Bathe My Baby?
When it comes to the perfect bath time, you should first and foremost find the right time. You should be undisturbed so that you can fully concentrate on your child.
Also, you can make sure that your child is not too hungry and not too full.
Bathing is best done between meals. You can also introduce fixed times, such as bathing as a ritual before bedtime.
It is important that you never let your baby out of your sight while bathing. If something is important, end the bath, wrap your baby up and take him/her away.
