How to Bathe a Newborn

How to Bathe a Newborn

Bathing can be a fun bonding experience for you and your baby. Most babies love bath time and while it may take a few baths to get the hang of it, you’ll be a pro in no time.

Mom tips
Try sponge bathing until your newborn’s umbilical stump falls off. This helps keeps it dry and helps it heal.
Once the umbilical area is healed you can try placing your baby directly in the water, you might find this easiest in a baby bath, sink or plastic tub lined with a clean towel.
Use warm water. You can check with your elbow first in case it’s too hot.
Make sure wash cloths, soap, and towels are in easy reach as you will need to hold baby at all times.
After the bath, pat your baby dry, making sure to gently dry between the folds of the skin.
When she is clean and dry, put on a fresh diaper, pick her up for a cuddle and take in that wonderful smell of a freshly bathed newborn – it’s the best.
