Baby bath time can seem a little intimidating for any new parent! Check out our tips on how to bathe your newborn. While there are many important tips and tricks for bathing newborns, the most important thing is that you and your baby enjoy the process! To help you get started, check out our baby bath tips: How often should a child be bathed? It is recommended to bathe the child 2-3 times a week. However, with that said, it’s perfectly fine to bathe them every day, as long as you don’t use harsh soap, as it can dry out your baby’s skin and cause irritation. Instead, we recommend using a more gentle option, such as our VATÉA Dreamy Baby Nourishing Organic Shower Gel. If you and your child enjoy bathing, bathing can be soothing and relaxing for both of you.
When should I bathe my baby? You can bathe your baby at any time of the day. However, if your child loves the bath and finds it soothing, it may be a good idea to give him a bath at night before bed. Doing this routine can also help boost the sleepiness signal. You can also supplement your nighttime routine with massage oil to enhance skin-to-skin contact between mother and baby. Our Loving Baby Massage Oil is the perfect way to firm and nourish your baby’s skin and improve your nighttime sleep patterns with the addition of chamomile and lavender to help baby sleep.
What consumables do I need? Before bathing your baby, make sure you have everything you need. There is nothing worse than jumping up halfway in the bath to find a towel. To prepare for the bath, grab a towel, washcloth, clean clothes, a fresh diaper, and a bottle of our VATÉA Dreamy Nourishing Organic Wash for a gentle, nourishing cleansing.
