Bathtime: the right way to bathe a bab

Bathtime: the right way to bathe a bab

After 9 months in mom's tummy, bathwater is a reassuring and warm natural environment for your infant. A time of tenderness, relaxation, and kinship - here is everything you need to know about bathing your baby!

The Perfect Time and Place:

In general, a baby is not very particular concerning the time and place for a bath. In the first few months it only requires a bath every 2 to 3 days, and once per day afterwards. There are only a few basic rules to follow for this special time between you and your child:

  • Where? You can take a bath with your baby by putting it in a padded bath chair. You can also use the sink if it is big enough for the child to move without hitting itself or put it in a clean washbasin or small baby bath.
  • When? We recommend baths that take place a while away from feeding, napping, or bedtime. It is important to think about your schedule as a parent: for those of us who have to go to work, a bath in the evening is better than one in the morning when everyone is in a rush!

The Ideal Conditions:

It is bathtime and you have readied your kit with a soft towel, a natural sea sponge or soft washcloth, a Body & Hair Ultra-Rich Cleansing Gel, a diaper, and clothing. The bathwater should not be hotter than 37°C, and the air temperature should not be lower than 20°C. To wash your child safely, put its head on your forearm and use the other to clean it.

The Different Parts of the Bath:

  • Before putting the baby in the bath, take off its diaper and, if necessary, clean the area.
  • Let the baby get comfortable in the water, it is very important for it to be able to relax and move all its limbs around.
  • Gently wash its face with clear water with soft compresses or recyclable fluffy cotton pads. With the tip of your finger, wipe its eyes from the nose towards the cheek.
  • Lightly clean the ears with a washcloth. Do not forget behind the ears to prevent crusting.
  • Once or twice a week, wash its hair with an infant-specific skincare product, like our Body & Hair Ultra-Rich Cleansing Gel. Be careful not to apply excessive pressure on its fontanels.
  • With a soap-free washcloth, carefully scrub its tummy, back, arms, and legs.
  • Lastly, wash its privates with an ultra-rich cleansing gel.
  • Take your baby out of the bath and swaddle it in an extra comfy towel.
  • Be sure to dry it thoroughly to prevent any irritation.
  • Apply a moisturizing cream before putting a diaper and clothes back on.
