It's hard to get your baby to be interested in bathing these days. Especially when you use the boring duck toy that just floats, but when you put the whale bath toy in the water, the cute whale bath toy will automatically sense the water spray and flashing lights, which will naturally attract your baby's attention. The whale bath toy also swings up and down, with a glowing belly, allowing your baby to follow the swing. Baby shower toys will keep your baby excited and enjoy bath time every time!
All in all, bath time has obvious benefits for babies and toddlers. Not only does it create an opportunity for uninterrupted bonding time, it’s a predictable (and hopefully relaxing!) routine to signal the transition to bed. But getting clean, having fun, and learning at the same time? That might be our favorite part of all. Sometimes the best toys are the most basic, and when it comes to bath time, you can't go wrong with cups!
Ask any parent, and they will tell you— the end is the best part of the day! We’re referring to bath time as such a special time to bond with your kiddo and get them ready for a good night’s sleep (hopefully!) However, nobody really teaches you how to bathe your baby safely or make it as easy as possible. There are some things you have to learn as you go along, but that doesn’t mean we can’t give you a helping hand. Here are our top five baby bath time tips— let us know what you think!
We all know that A happy bath time = a happy baby! So make sure you have everything you need for a happy baby bath time before you even run the tap- a warm towel to wrap baby in, nappy and clothes for afterwards, equipment for night-time feed, a cushion or towel to kneel on, bath toys, etc. This one is all the more important when you’re bathing young babies, as you’ll need two hands to do it safely. Tiny babies are very fidgety and slippery when they’re wet! It’s also good to make sure that the room is nice and warm to keep them as comfortable as possible.
While this tip is more of a safety notice, it’s important to note that your little one may also feel comforted by your touch when they’re in a new situation such as bath time. It’s important to never, ever leave baby unsupervised during bath time. Have everything within reach before you begin so you can always keep a hand on your little one to prevent slipping or rolling. If there’s a reason you need to step away from the bathtub—for instance, if you forgot something, need to answer the door, or need to help another child—take your baby along with you.
When you first put baby into the bath they may feel cold and want to get out, but ease them in gently and gradually warm them up by washing their body with a warm, damp flannel. Keeping them warm and not cold is your priority during bath time. If they’re just not enjoying it take them out wrap them up in a nice cuddly towel and try again tomorrow. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day!
It isn’t any baby bath without bath toys! They’ll have just as much fun with some ducks as they will with an old cup for filling up and pouring out with water. You don’t need to spend the earth on bath toys because sometimes it’s the household products they like the most! A fun bath time = a happy bath time and bath toys will really help to up the engagement and enjoyment during it.
