How happy it is to have a new member at home! When he was born, the first thing we thought of was to help the baby clean up, take photos, paste face books and show off. But wait a minute! What are the main points of baby bath? You may not have noticed!

Bath necessities

Big bath towel, small towel (100% cotton soft towel, 1 for dry and wet use respectively), medical cotton ball, baby shower gel and shampoo, baby powder, baby lotion and diapers.

What are the main points of bathing?

The baby needs to clean his hips before entering the tub. Around the small buttocks, the wrinkles between the legs, and the passage for defecation and defecation, you should use a warm and wet cotton ball dipped in some lotion to gently wipe. Don’t rub, change the cotton ball from place to place. It is beneficial to wipe off the oily excreta and water-soluble secretions that are difficult to remove with the lotion. The high-quality lotion also has the function of resisting bacteria.

After washing the small buttocks, cover the baby with diapers, then undress the baby and wrap the big bath towel into the tub. 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 once or twice. 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, and gently touch the baby’s head with your hands. Pay attention not to touch the baby’s fontanelle, not to scratch the scalp.

Next, you can untie the baby’s diaper, take away the bath towel wrapped around the baby, and start to wash the baby’s body. It should be noted that the baby’s armpits, elbows, fingers, navels, legs, toes and other places should also be gently wiped with cotton ball. Baby’s chest, back, buttocks and other parts, the mother can directly touch with the palm of her hand. After washing, dry the baby with a dry towel. Be careful not to use a wet towel.

In fact, the baby can take a bath once a day from the second day after birth, which can not only clean the skin, but also accelerate blood circulation and promote growth and development. For the newborn with light weight and low living ability or because of the low room temperature and unconditional bathing every day, we must insist on washing face every day.

Moms should pay attention to that if the umbilical cord of the newborn does not fall off, it is not suitable to put the baby directly into the bath tub to soak, but to use a warm towel to scrub the viscera and groin. Take care not to warm the navel, so as to avoid contamination by dirty water and omphalitis. Once it gets wet, wipe it with a cotton swab dipped in 75% alcohol.
