Bathing your baby is an experience many parents treasure. It’s a great time to bond as your little one enjoys the sensation of warm water on their skin. Yet this common parenting ritual often comes with questions, and sometimes anxiety!
Newborns don’t need a bath every day. They rarely sweat or get dirty enough to need a full bath that often. Three baths per week may be enough. Bathing more frequently can dry out your baby’s skin! Once the umbilical cord falls off then it Bath Time!!
Baby sponge bath safety tips:
Get supplies ready before you begin. Have a basin of water, a washcloth, a dry towel, and a mild soap! Our Inby Baby soap is full of rich, skin-loving ingredients like shea butter and olive oil. It thoroughly, yet gently cleanses skin without stripping it of its natural oils. Your Baby skin will feel soft and conditioned, not tight and dry
Lay baby on a flat surface that is comfortable for both of you— Always use a safety strap or keep one hand on her to prevent falls.
Start washing the face first. Use the dampened cloth to wash her face then rinse and wash the rest of her body and, finally, the diaper area.
- Keep baby warm. During the sponge bath, wrap your baby in a dry towel and uncover only the parts you are washing.
