Bathing new born babies can be a very tedious experience however with a little practice; it will be an easy and comfortable practice. Medical practitioners say that there is no need to give your newborn baby a bath every day. Bathing your baby everyday has more disadvantages than advantages as this can dry out his or her skin. For babies, the parts that need daily cleaning are the bottom areas and the mouth areas. Therefore, if you are conversant with clean diapers and burp clothes, then you are already cleaning the parts that really need attention.
Usually, the parts of a baby's body which needs daily cleaning are the face, the neck and the diaper areas. Moreover, it is up to you to decide when you choose to bathe you baby – considering the day and what time of the day you choose to give him or her a bath. However, if you decide to bath your baby after feeding, make sure to wait for his or her tummy to settle a little. Also, medical practitioners recommend sponge baths until the umbilical cord stump falls off. This might take up to three weeks. To give your baby a sponge bath, you would need important items such as a warm plate with a flat surface. This could be a bathroom or kitchen counter or even a blanket or towel spread out on the floor. You will also need a soft blanket, towel or changing pad for your baby to lie on; you will need a sink or shallow plastic basin to hold warm water; you will need essential supplies such as washcloth, towel, baby shampoo, moisturizing soap, baby wipes, a clean diapers and change of clothes.
To bath your baby, undress and wrap him or her in a towel. Lay the baby on his or her back on the blanket or towel you have prepared on the flat surface. Wet the washcloth, wring out excess water and wipe your baby's face with it. There is really no need to use soap. You may use a damp cotton ball to wipe each eye lid from the inside to the outside corner. You may use a mild moisturizing soap if your baby is dirty.
