As a new parent, you want to make sure you're doing the right thing for your baby at all times. When it comes to bathing your little one, there are many factors to consider, from the right temperature to how often to wash their hair.
In this article, we'll answer some of the most common questions about baby baths and recommend some eco-friendly products to make bath time fun and safe.
What is the best temperature for baby baths?
The ideal temperature for a baby bath is around 37 degrees Celsius (98.6 degrees Fahrenheit), which is the same as your baby's body temperature.
How do I know if my baby's bath is too hot?
If the water is too hot, it can be dangerous for your baby's sensitive skin. To ensure the water is at the right temperature, you can use a bath thermometer or test it with your elbow.
If the water feels comfortable to you, it should be safe for your baby. If the water feels too warm or hot to the touch, it's too hot for your baby.
Should I wash my baby's face every day?
Yes, it's important to clean your baby's face every day to keep their skin healthy and prevent irritation. Use a soft, damp washcloth to gently clean their face, paying special attention to the creases around their nose and mouth. Be sure to avoid getting soap or water in their eyes.
How often should you wash newborn hair?
Newborns don't need their hair washed every day, as their hair doesn't get as oily or dirty as older children's hair. Two to three times a week is usually sufficient.
Be sure to use a gentle shampoo that's free of harsh chemicals and fragrances like some of the eco-friendly products on the market.
When should I start brushing my baby's hair?
There's no specific age requirement to begin brushing your infant’s hair, but be sure to use a brush with gentle bristles to avoid any discomfort or irritation on your baby's delicate skin.
When should a baby start using a toothbrush?
Although some infants may have no teeth yet, by the time they reach 6 months of age, a few may begin to have teeth emerging. To maintain oral hygiene, you can begin using an infant toothbrush.
