Top tips to get the most out of your baby's bath
After many, many years of practice, you’ve got the whole washing yourself every day thing down pat (well, one would hope). Kudos to you. You smell great.
But as a new mum, bathing your baby may not seem as clear-cut. Their little body is so tiny and delicate, and there are areas you may have never even thought needed attention (like in the folds of their chubby baby skin). So rather than let you play a not-so-fun game of trial and error, we asked Jo Bridgman, a midwife who works with the Johnson’s baby professional team, to share some baby bathtime tips.
TOP TIPS FOR BABY BATHTIME
1. Water alone isn’t always enough to remove all impurities from your baby’s bottom. Use products that are specially formulated for babies and will cleanse while caring for your baby’s delicate skin barrier.
2. Choose a bath product that is soap free and therefore won’t dry out your baby’s skin. Jo’s product choice: Johnson’s baby Top-to-Toe.
3. Keeping your baby's skin hydrated and moisturised is one of the most important things you can do to help maintain and protect your baby's delicate skin barrier. Choose a moisturising lotion that has been specially formulated to care for and nourish your baby's skin. Jo’s product choice: Johnson’s Baby Lotion.
4. Cherish bath time! While a bath will help cleanse away impurities that can lead to skin irritations, it’s also a wonderful time to bond with your baby and helps your bub relax before bedtime - so enjoy it!
