It’s not an easy task to take care of a little bundle of joy. Babies require a clean, hygienic atmosphere. Bath time for a baby is undoubtedly not a simple chore. It facilitates a special bond with your little one as you both get wet, trying to wipe the dirt of their back. The bath time can become an extraordinary time if one incorporates some different techniques to handle and bathe the new baby. After all, no one wants their cute little one to look dirty! A headache while bathing your baby can be avoided and can turn into a super fun time for both the parent and the child. Here are a few tips.
Sing, Talk And Play
Even if you sing terribly, your baby won’t get to know. They are too little to tell the difference between a bathroom singer and a professional one! Just make sure you sing something soft and musical. Trying singing ‘La vie en rose’ or ‘Yellow’ to your child, and he/she will thank you later for sure. Every kid loves a toy. Toys mark the existence of childhood. Dip and splash a duck into the water.
Tell your child about Donald and his friends, introducing him to a world of endless possibilities and imagination! While your kid gets distracted playing with Donald and his friends, wash his hair and feet without even they were noticing it. On the plus side, toys are fun. You can play with them too! Talking to your baby is the best way to deviate his attention from your soapy hands to your face. Tell him/her all the tales of your youth, office, college, and everything. Wipe and wash your child while he listens to your tales attentively. Recite him ABC or the numbers! It will be fun and informative at the same time. Who says bath time is also for washing and cleaning?
New Baby And Bubbles
Bubbles fascinate every soul on the planet. Your toddler will be happy with the little floating ball of soap! Pop them, let them make their way to the bathtub, and feel the frothy texture on your fingers. Just make sure you use the right kind of soap and shampoo to avoid red eyes, rashes, and tears!
You don’t have to do all the cleaning alone when you can do it together as a family. Both parents can enjoy the special moments with the baby while he/she splashes water all around the bathtub, and everyone gets wet! Turn on some sweet music, and you can have a memorable time together!
A bathtub is not just for bathing when you can color and paint the wall using bathtub crayons! You never know your child can turn out as the next Van Gogh, so just let him make a mess and decorate his/her own space! Now that we know how to make bath time amazing and enriching go start having fun cleaning your baby!
