Bathing is a pleasant thing for us adults. It helps to eliminate fatigue and relax our body and mind. But for many babies, bathing is not so popular. There are mothers who complain that their babies always cry when they take a bath, or even cry not to wash, so how to take a bath for their babies?
When bathing a baby during lactation, the cutin on the surface of the baby’s skin is still very soft. Do not rub it hard, but gently. Before entering the tub, the baby should wash his hips. Around the buttocks, at the wrinkles between the legs, and at the opening of the defecation passage, you should use a warm and wet cotton ball dipped in some lotion to gently wipe and change one place for another. It can be used properly to wipe off the oily excreta and water-soluble secretion which are difficult to remove. The high-quality bath gel has the function of resisting bacteria.
After you wash your butt, undress your baby. Corner of the eye, bridge of the nose, mouth, ears, these places should be gently wiped with a warm and wet cotton ball. Every time you wash a part, change the cotton ball. It should be noted that when washing the ears, first use a dry cotton ball to gently plug into the baby’s ear hole to prevent water penetration into the middle ear, causing otitis media.
Wash your face and then your hair. To wash the baby’s hair, hold the baby’s head with your hands, gently touch the baby’s head with your hands, and pay attention not to touch the child’s genitals, not to scratch the scalp.
Weaning to 2 years old
Cultivate a good habit of bathing
The bathing procedure of this age group is basically the same as that of breastfeeding babies, and the buttocks still need to be washed outside the bathtub. However, the strength of cleaning baby can be slightly increased. Because this age group is the beginning of cultivating children’s good health habits, so you can “dress” the bathroom as much as possible like a “water room”. If the baby wants to play bucket, play rubber duck swimming, as long as pay attention to safety, might as well let him play. Let the baby enjoy taking a bath every day.
2-6 years old
Insist on bathing and practice perseverance
Let the children of this age gradually develop the habit of bathing every day in summer, partly because of the need to clean the skin, the greater significance is to let the children develop a clean, hygienic and regular life habit. This kind of regular and clean living habit plays an important role in the healthy growth of children, the cultivation of patience and willpower in the future.
In this way, from birth, every time period of baby bathing is different. We can also take a bath while telling stories and playing small games to increase the fun of baby bathing, but we should pay attention not to play too obsessed and let baby catch cold. The common sense about what health habits children need to cultivate is still in the process of updating. Please continue to pay attention to this website!
