How to Give Safe Bath to your Child
Inspect the water to make sure it is not overly hot or cold.
It should be close to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Because you don't want the infant to be too cold when they come out of the bath, the air temperature is also important. Baby should breathe air that is between 75 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It can occasionally be helpful to fill the tub with water before the infant enters so that you have better control over the water's temperature.
Maintain the water depth low.
Adult baths often include filling the tub almost to the brim and burying all but our heads. However, a baby should only be in extremely shallow water, with most of their body above the surface. It is advised that the water be around two inches deep. Throughout the remainder of the bath, you can use a cup to scoop up water and pour it on the baby's body.
Make sure the environment is baby-proof and slip-free.
To avoid slipping, use non-skid mats, and always thoroughly rinse off all soap and shampoo with water. Cover the water spout with a pool noodle or a soft spout cover in case a baby bangs their head on it.
Just a little soap should be used.
We can easily get clean using soap! However, too much makes the going even slicker. Additionally, it might cause a baby's skin to become dry. A little bit mixed with water can go a long way.
Some of the unexpected sounds that a baby hears in the bathroom, such as flowing water or flushing toilets, could frighten them. In a bathroom, even your voice would sound different. To help infants feel peaceful, speak to them in a gentle, quiet voice and steer clear of loud noises.
Baby should be fully dried off after the bath. This not only benefits the health of their skin, but also makes them simpler to handle. For a newborn, drying can be a soothing sensory experience.
