For a newborn family, bathing is always a good thing. Especially if only the mother takes care of the baby, how to give the baby a safe and happy bath? Baby bath preparation to do a good job, review!

Bath equipment:

Setting bath: suitable for babies aged 0-6 months. The bathtub is ergonomically designed to make the baby very comfortable to lie or sit in the ideal position of the bathtub, so as to avoid the baby accidentally sliding into the water.

Ordinary bathtub: suitable for babies over 6 months old. Because such a big baby can sit and slide into the water.

Bath chair: if your baby can’t always take a bath quietly, you can use the bath chair. The bath chair usually has a suction cup type anchoring system, which can be easily placed in the adult bathtub. Moreover, the bath chair is a non slip seat, on which the baby can play and wash while sitting, and the mommy can complete this “task” without the help of others.

Bathtub hanging box: the bathtub hanging box is a very convenient auxiliary tool. Its adjustable handle clip can be fixed on the edge of the bathtub, and it has a large capacity. It can hold all the things for the baby to take a bath, such as soap, sponge, toys, etc., which can effectively avoid the lack of things in the bath.

cleaning products:

Shower gel: baby shower gel made of natural oil should be selected, which will not hurt baby’s tender skin, and is rich in milk protein. However, infants under 3 months should use less bath gel. For example, three baths can be washed twice with clear water to minimize skin irritation.

Shampoo: the baby’s secretion within 6 months is not much, and it can be washed directly with bath gel; the baby’s shampoo for more than 6 months can be used, which generally has no tear formula, can not stimulate eyes, moisturize hair, and prevent skin allergy.

Soap: pure and mild baby special soap. It is rich in foam and can effectively keep moisture in the skin.

Bath towel: in order to keep warm more fully, you can choose a bath towel with a hat, because the head is the most heat dissipating part.

Small towel: use the small towel with pure cotton texture, which has good moisture absorption and is small and lovely. You can buy different colors to wipe your face, feet, buttocks, etc.

Sponge: it’s best to buy baby’s special natural sponge. It’s hard to form when it’s dry. It’s soft when it’s wet.


Water temperature meter: the baby’s skin is delicate, and the requirement for water temperature is much higher than that for adults. Mommy only relies on her hands to feel the temperature of water is often in error. If it’s cool or hot, it will cause the baby’s discomfort. Therefore, measuring the water temperature with a water thermometer before bathing can lay a very good foundation for the later “bath battle”.

Nose aspirator: it’s hard to avoid being in a hurry when bathing your baby. If you accidentally let your baby’s nose into the water, he will cry hard. If there is a snorkel, it can easily suck out the water in the baby’s nose, so that the baby is free from pain.

Bath toys: when bathing your baby, if you can have some bath toys with bright colors and lovely shapes, they will definitely add a lot of fun to your baby’s bath. For a baby, the bath time accompanied by toys is like a fun game. He will like it more and more.

Bath tips:

1. It is more appropriate to arrange bathing for the baby before going to bed and feeding. Because bath before bedtime can make baby sleep comfortably, bathing after feeding is easy to cause vomiting.

2, in addition to preparing for the above bathing needs, but also prepare baby’s bath items, such as body clothing, skin care lotion, diapers, etc., should also be placed in a convenient location.

3, after bathing, do not overuse skin care lotion (especially in summer), otherwise it may block sweat pores and cause skin allergy.

4. After bathing the baby, it is better to apply talcum powder to the baby’s buttocks, thigh roots and armpits to keep the baby’s skin dry, clean and healthy, which is helpful to prevent prickly heat and skin eczema. But it must be used properly, otherwise it may cause skin allergy.

The above items must be purchased with special products for children with quality assurance, so as to protect the baby’s skin from damage.
