How To Give a Baby a Bath?
We usually use hands or cups to wet his skin and hair. Before soaping the washcloth, I clean his face and around the eyes. Next, I clean his hands and feet. At this point, I usually soap new washcloth. However, you could use the same washcloth to wash baby’s body. Proper rinsing is important, so I take my time to make sure all soap is gone. Finally, I thoroughly wash and rinse his hair. When I rinsing his hair, I make sure his head is tilted backwards a little bit. This will keep the soap out of his face and eyes. Our son loves to be the one in charge in draining the bathtub. He learned how to pull the bathtub plug and let the water go. This is a great form entertainment for him, and we gladly let him do it. After I dry him in his towel, I apply skin lotion and give him a small massage. The bath procedure officially ends with a night diaper and PJ’s.
