Baby Bath Tips
Care and pamper your newborn during bath time with the following tips.
Sponge Bath for the first few days:
Babies are born with an immature skin barrier, and they do not require daily baths. Proper baths during the initial days can make their skin dry and affect their skin health. Even doctors suggest sponge baths for babies until their umbilical cord falls off.
Wipe them with a cotton cloth and water or Mother Sparsh 99% pure water baby wipes for the first few weeks. It will ensure cleanliness without damaging their skin.
Oil Massage Before Bath:
You can start oil massages for your baby once they are two weeks old; it helps to strengthen bones and muscles. Use an Ayurvedic baby massage oil with shankupushpam and ashwagandha 10- 15 minutes before baths to nourish their skin.
Be very careful and attentive during the massage, and stop it if they show any signs of discomfort.
Water Level & Temperature:
Cut short your baby’s bath time to ten minutes as their body temperature lowers very fast and can cause sickness. Maintain the temperature of the water between 36 degrees Celsius and 38 degrees Celsius. If you do not have a bath thermometer, check the temperature with your elbows. Put the baby in the bath only if the temperature feels comfortable (not hot or warm) for your skin.
Also, remember that babies can drown even in 1-2 inches of water. So make sure that the water level is lower than their belly button while laying flat.
Do Not Leave Baby Alone:
It is very unsafe to leave babies in the bathroom alone; make sure you or someone else is there with the baby all the time. Also, keep an eye on buckets filled with water; it is advisable to empty all bucks before bathing the baby.
Use Plant-Powered Baby Shampoo & Wash:
The baby bathing products you use are significant for their skin and hair health. Ensure that you always choose derma-approved products with plant-derived ingredients.
Mother Sparsh Plant-Powered baby care range has the best baby shampoo for hair growth and washes for gentle cleansing.
Apply Moisturiser After Bath:
Even if you apply oil before the bath, your baby’s skin can dry up fast. So, apply a generous amount of Plant-Powered Natural Baby lotion on their skin right after the bath. It will nourish their skin from within and prevent dryness and itchiness.
