Many children don’t like to take a bath naturally. In this stage, they are too worried. In the summer, they haven’t put their children in the bathtub yet. The parents have already taken a “sweat bath” with great perspiration. So what about children who don’t like bathing?
Make bathing an interesting activity:
1. Relax and enjoy. Most pediatricians think that a baby does not need to bathe every day, but it does need to be caressed and teased by mom and dad and other people who love him every day, and bathing is one of the opportunities. At the same time, it can also help children develop very important health habits. Bathing is a regular activity for everyone.
2. Make children feel safe. If you don’t know how to bathe your new baby, you can ask the doctor for advice, or you can get some experience and advice from the old people, so you will know. If you are confident, you and the baby will feel safer. When bathing your child, you can gently sing and talk to the child, encourage the child to pat the water and play, so that the child can enjoy this time.
3. Make the child completely comfortable. Newborn babies like to take a bath in a small bath because they think it will sink in a big bath. You can spread the towel on the edge of the bath, help the child with one hand, make him face you, and bathe the child with the other hand. Pay attention to bath water and room temperature. Wash your child with non irritating soap, shampoo and soft towel. Turn off the safety valve of the tap in case the child turns it on. After taking the child out of the bath, wrap him in a large dry towel.
4. Find out the children’s habits. Sometimes, you just need to touch your child’s bath hobby to solve the problem easily. If your child likes to bathe himself, let him wash himself. You can choose a toy for him to play with in the bath. But you have to be careful to prevent soap from hurting your child’s eyes. According to the child’s hobby, decide how much water and water it will put in. In other words, let the child has the final say in the bath. In this way, you and your child won’t argue about bathing.
Teach children to bathe themselves:
When the child can sit alone in the bathtub, it’s time for him to learn how to bathe himself, praise and reward his efforts to bathe himself.
1. Make bathing fun. When you bathe your child, play with him, laugh and call his name. Don’t be silent like washing a dirty bottle. Let children sing and play games while bathing, and tell them how to bathe themselves. You need to check after the children are washed. When a child grows up, he can put shampoo on himself. When taking a bath, you can also lift the water on the child’s face to amuse him, which also prepares him to learn the game later.
2. Respect children’s self-awareness and independence. A child must understand the hidden parts of his body. Teach older children to wash these places as well as other parts. If the older child is very private, respect his ideas. The father is responsible for washing the boy’s hair, and the mother is responsible for washing the girl’s hair. Families with single parents can let their children learn to bathe in swimsuits.
3. Let the child bathe himself. If possible, try to encourage your child to bathe himself. When a two or three-year-old takes a bath, you should sit beside him and talk to him or read a story to him. Although generally speaking, children before the age of four or five can’t bathe by themselves, there is no clear age limit on when children can bathe safely. When a child can take a bath independently depends on the level of sitting, the coordination ability of the body and whether he is careful.
To cultivate children’s habit of consciously bathing:
Children are often reluctant to take a bath when they are having a good time, so they will come up with some ways to avoid taking a bath. If bathing every day has become a static rule, the child will realize that even if he cries desperately, he will not want to delay the bathing time.
1. Institutionalize bathing. If you stipulate that bathing every day and washing your hair frequently is a rule that cannot be changed by any excuse or quarrel, the child will know that he has no choice but to take a good bath.
2. Set a bath time. Choose an appropriate time for your child to take a bath so that the bath does not conflict with other activities.
