After having welcomed your baby into the world, there are several things that you need to look forward to and be in the know on what to expect and things you need to do. One of these is giving your baby a bath. It must be said from the outset that your baby does not need to be bathed on a daily basis but should practice what is known as ‘topping and tailing,’ which is washing their face, neck bottom, and hands each day with care until they start crawling around. We are not going to delve into the ‘how’ of bathing your baby but will instead concentrate on a few vital points that you must keep in mind during the process.

  • Wait until the water has stopped running before putting your baby in the tub.
  • Make sure the room is warm enough and all the things that you need including the change of clothes are in place.

The fact that you should never leave your baby unattended or in the bath while the water is running can never be over emphasized enough. Children can drown in less than an inch of water in a minute. Leaving the water running can result in the water getting too deep.
