Nothing smells as sweet as a new baby. Well, until that baby needs a bit of a tidy up, right? Not to worry though as these baby grooming tips will have your little bundle of joy smelling fresh and lovely again soon.
At NaturalBabaa™ , we encourage you to check out the full spectrum of important safety tips about bathing and grooming your baby from NHS to prevent any danger.
Try to groom when baby is wakeful and happy
Sometimes, a big nappy explosion may mandate an urgent cleaning. But if there’s no big mess, you can top and tail or go for a regular bath. When there’s no urgency, wait until baby is awake and seems content for this ritual.
Keep the room warm
Cold air is a rude awakening for any baby. Set the room to a warm temperature to ensure baby’s comfort.
Get all the things you need ready
It will take some practice, but you will eventually get everything you need in one fell swoop. Grab a fresh nappy, a towel, washcloth, clean clothes, and a baby muslin
to wrap baby with for extra warmth and comfort.
Use a thermometer to check the water temperature
Bath water for babies should be at 38C, deemed safe by doctors for top and tail or bathing your baby. Too cold and you’ll upset baby while too hot can lead to serious injury. A bath thermometer can help you set things just right.
Never leave baby unattended in or near water
Even a baby that can sit up on their own should never be out of your immediate reach in the tub. Everything else can wait, and yes, that even means if you forgot the clothes in the other room. You can take baby with you to get it by using a cosy muslin square
