Baby’s First Shower: What Inexperienced Parents Should Know?

Like other “firsts,” getting the camera primed, the baby’s first bath is a remarkable event. Each bath time is, in particular, a special time to create contact with the new-born. Cush, sing, talk-your baby likes your voice and grows up softly.

Shower for babies: planning

A sponge bath will be the first bath. Choose a warm space with a flat ground, like a kitchen counter or toilet, a dressing table, or a bunk. With a dense towel, protect the floor. Be sure the room temperature is at least 74 degrees Fahrenheit since it is easy for babies to cool down.

Assemble all the things for baby baths you need:

* Kid wash sponge or clean cloth for dishes (double rinse)

* A spare blanket or towel for a bath (with a hood is nice)

* Clean and clean diapers

* Clean garments

* Cloth and Vaseline (in the event that you have a circumcised kid)

* Water (not hot)

Essential note: Never allow your child to bathe alone, except for a while.

Baby bath: spontaneous bath time

For The first couple of weeks a soft bath of sponges is the safest, before the umbilical string breaks, the circumcision heals and the bottom of the intestine is fully healed.

  • Basic knowledge of bathing baby first, undress the baby-hold his head in one hand. Keep the diapers (wash the area last). Cover the kid in a towel so that it exposes only the area to be cleaned.
  • To disinfect one place at a time, use baby shower cotton or laundry fabric. Go from behind your head, then travel to your shoulders, your elbows, your knees, and between your fingertips and your toes. Note under the arms, behind the ears, and around the throat, the creases.
  • The hair does not appear until the bath time is over, so the baby will not catch a cold. Although the new-born baby does not have much hair, you can wipe a few strands there. To avoid wet eyes, tilt your head back a bit. No shampoo is needed. Just use water.
  • Now it is time to separate the baby’s belly, bottom, and vagina from the diaper and sponge.
  • Wash the little girls from back to front. If there is a small amount of vaginal discharge, don’t worry-don’t try to wipe it all off. If a little boy is not circumcised, He is not to be circumcised. If there is circumcision, do not wash the head of the penis until the wound has healed.
  • Pat the baby dry. Rubbing the skin can irritate the skin.

The time for the bath is done, and your new little one is ready for just a clean diaper and clothing!

Time in Shower:

It’s time to try a tub bath till the umbilical cord comes out and the foreskin and the navel are completely healed. Not all babies like this transition, so if your baby is irritable, go back to the sponge bath for about a week and try again. Bathing a baby is a process-adjustments are made to both the baby and the parents.


  • Find a baby bathtub made of thick plastic that fits your baby’s size. Baby inserts are ideal-and keep the baby’s head away from the water. The non-slip backing on the bathtub prevents it from moving during the bath.
  • Do not try to use bath seats or bath rings. These are only suitable for older babies who can sit down on their own, not for new-borns.

Bathing the baby: the first bath

Make a quick bath in the first bath. Fill up the bathtub with only 2 or 3 inches of warm water (not hot water). Hold the baby’s head with one hand, and then slowly lower them.

  •     Use a towel or baby shower cotton to clean your face and hair. When rinsing, cover your brow with your hand to protect your eyes, gently clean the rest of the baby with water and a little quantity of soap.
  •     To keep the baby warm during the bath, please hold your hands and let a little quantity of water wash the baby’s chest.
  •     Use water or a cleanser specially designed for babies. As the hair grows, try using mild baby shampoo.
  •     Pat the baby dry. Apply baby lotion to seal in moisture.
  •     It’s time to change fresh diapers. Apply diaper ointment to prevent irritation.

After the bath time is over, immediately wrap the baby in a towel and cover the baby’s head to keep it warm. Congratulations on the successful shower!
