Bathing is a daily job that mothers are familiar with. They do it almost every day. But there are many misunderstandings in such ordinary and familiar things! Especially in winter, how to bathe the baby? What’s wrong with bathing your baby? What you think is wrong!
1. Too much Shower Gel
When bathing the baby, many parents will put a lot of bath gel, think it can help to better clean the dust on the body. However, too much shower gel is not easy to clean, it is also easy to make the baby’s body very slippery, and it is easy to slide out when the adult holds it up, which may cause the baby to fall.
2. Walk away during the bath
This habit is very harmful to babies when they come. Many of them will go to get a toy, a clothes, a towel or something in the middle of their bath. I think it’s nothing to walk away for a while. Even if the baby can walk, it’s easy to drown, fall and so on.
3. Heating water during bathing
In the cold winter, many parents will add hot water while the baby is bathing, so that the baby will not be frozen. However, some parents are convenient to add water directly to the bathtub, which has a great potential safety hazard. The baby is curious. If he stretches his hand forward, it is very easy to have an accident. Or the heating water fails to know the water temperature in the basin synchronously, which causes the baby to be scalded.
4. Wash the baby directly with the showerhead
Adults like to wash directly with a showerhead when they take a bath, which is very comfortable. But for babies, don’t wash like this. Whether it’s gas water heater or electric water heater, the water temperature will be relatively low when it’s just turned on. Those water heaters that have been used for a long time tend to be hot and cold. If you don’t pay attention, babies are easy to catch cold or get scalded. It’s better to adjust the water temperature in the bathtub before bathing the baby.
The above is a detailed explanation of the mistakes parents are prone to make when bathing their babies. 99% of the parents above have had the habits. I hope you will not make these mistakes after reading this article.
