Bathing a slippery and delicate newborn can be a nerve-wracking experience for any parent and your baby might not like it much either but with a little practice, you’ll both start to feel more comfortable and baby’s bath time can turn into an enjoyable experience.
Until your baby starts crawling and getting dirty on the ground, a daily bath isn’t required. Once your baby can sit up on her own and outgrows the infant tub, you may want to do it more often; because let’s face it, there’s nothing cuter than seeing a baby splashing in the bath surrounded by soapy suds and a rubber ducky.
You baby’s skin is much more sensitive than adult skin, so always use a cleanser or soap that is made especially for babies. Adult liquid cleanser and soaps contain Alkaline which can strip the natural oils from your baby’s skin, leaving it more vulnerable to drying out or getting a rash. A cleanser with a neutral pH level is more suited to a baby’s delicate skin because it does not remove the protective barrier that locks the moisture in.
