May 3, 2008
Are you one of those parents who is worried about giving your baby a bath at home? If you are one of those people who are about to become moms and dads, you should be prepared for the coming of your baby. Yes, giving a bath to a little baby who is just a few days old sounds a bit scary but the good news is that once you master the art of giving your baby a bath, you will actually enjoy the activity and look forward to it everyday.

Do we have to give the baby a bath each day?

Bath time is very important to babies and parents alike. According to experts, bath time is one of the best times for bonding between parents and their babies. To make sure that you and your baby will enjoy this activity together, make sure that you get your baby all the essential things that he or she needs when taking a bath.

For the bath you will need the following items at least - a good infant bathtub, some washclothesor sponges, baby shampoo and soft towels. Be sure to use all natural and mild products for your baby as all babies skin is very sensitive.

When you are buying your baby bath products you can pick up a baby sling. Babies tend to wriggle about once they are in the bath so you will have to be sure to hold them gently but firmly. A baby sling will protect your baby from dropping and hitting their head in the bath. It will also give you more confidence and you will enjoy the experience more if you have one.

The first time you have to give your baby a bath can be a nerve racking one. It's to be expected as you have never had to do this before. many parents make mistakes the first time they bath the baby and this can be uncomfortable for the baby and the parents. To avoid this you could ask someone who has experience to show you how it's done or to come to your home and watch while you are doing it. The nurses in the hospital will often show new moms how to bath their baby or a midwife at a home birth.

If it's the first time you have to bath your baby try and enjoy it, it will be something you look back on in years to come with fond memories. Have a second person with you for help and support. Always remember to be safe when babies are near water. Never leave them alone and always support thme gently in the water. Enjoy this precious time with your baby and your baby will be sure to enjoy it too.
