The first baby bathtime is a big moment – a tiny baby in soapy water can challenge even the most confident parents. You may have questions: What’s the best time to bathe a baby? What’s the ideal baby bath temperature? How many times a week should I bathe them?
There are no real rules to bathing a baby. In time, you’ll find your own way and start to enjoy it. One thing you might want to keep in mind is your baby’s delicate skin. As paediatric dermatologist and mum-of-two Dr Zilda says: “It’s worth remembering children aren’t mini adults when it comes to skin care – baby skin is thinner and has many features that are different.”
Because delicate baby skin loses moisture quickly, it will benefit from extra care that replenishes moisture while you cleanse. Baby Dove products can help do just that.
And here’s another helping hand – some bathtime tips from other mums and dads.
