Time for a bath! You just returned home with your newborn and it’s time to learn all you need to know about his bath! Bath time is going to be relaxing and rejuvenating for your baby, even if he does not look excited during the first few days.
The following advice will help you get familiar with your baby’s bathing routine, to make sure is full of fun and above all safety!
- Choose the right time!
Any time which is convenient for you is the most suitable one. Usually, babies calm down and sleep after bathing. For this reason, a suitable time for bathing is nighttime. In this way, you will also have the chance to rest and sleep.
- Gather everything you need before you start:
- Make sure you have the right room temperature. Ideally is should be 21- 23 degrees Celsius.
- Make sure the bathtub is well supported and stable in order to avoid any accidents!
- We use water in the bathtub up to 37 degrees Celsius. We do not fill the bathtub to the top!
The water level should be up to the point where only the body of the baby is sunk.
To check the water temperature, use the inside of your wrist to see if you can tolerate the temperature. Alternatively, you can use a special bath thermometer (it should indicate 32-37 ◦C).
