5 Tips On How To Make Bath Time Fun And Safe For Your Baby
« on: January 31, 2020, 10:19:54 AM »


There are babies who love the feel of splashes of water, who enjoy taking a bath and look forward to this activity everyday. On the other hand, there are those who are terrified just at the sight of the tub, who are scared to be dipped in the water.

Whichever your kid is, there are certain ways you can do to ensure that bath time is safe for your kid and fun for both of you.

Tip Number 1: Talk with your kid gently while you bathe him. More often than not, he will be interested in what you say even though he does not yet completely understand you. Talking to him will also give him an assurance that heís safe and thereís nothing to be scared of. Say things like, ďIím now washing your hair with this sweet smelling shampoo!Ē or ďNow itís time for a rub-a-dub. Letís go soap this cute little body of yours!Ē

Tip Number 2: Sing to your kid or play nice and fun songs while he takes a bath. Kids love music especially those upbeat ones. Once heís learned to associate these fun songs and also your singing which he loves no matter if it's out of tune or not with taking a bath, heíll eventually love and enjoy these baths.

Tip Number 3: Give your kid bath toys to play with during his tub time. A squeaky toy like a rubber duckie or a bath puppet like Baby Einstein puppet would definitely keep your baby entertained while you clean him from head to toe. This will show him that baths are not scary but are also a fun time to play.

Tip Number 4: Use child-safe and durable bath tubs. And always be careful in handling your kid during baths. Remember, babies are slippery when wet. Itís good if you have someone to assist you during the bath and help you get hold of your baby especially if heís the energetic kind who loves to kick around and splash water on your face. Itís also smart to place the tub on top of a rubber mat to prevent the tub from slipping.

Tip Number 5: Bathe your kid in lukewarm but not hot water. Adjust the temperature of your water heater to 120 degrees Fahrenheit or 48.9 degrees Celsius. Water that is too hot may scald or burn your baby and water that is too cold might scare him.

Itís important that you encourage your kid to love taking a bath because this is a very important part of personal hygiene and good grooming. Positive outlook on baths and good bathing habits are contributory to good health.

Give him toys that will incite his creative imagination. Building blocks are ideal toys for this age, not only because it works to improve fine motor skills but also encourage your kid to use his imagination to build. Stacking toys such as stackable cups and pails are also exciting for your kid and will also be good for the stimulation of his creativity.
