5 Tips For Bathing Baby & A Disney Baby Prize Pack #Giveaway #Canada

I remember giving both of my kids their first baths. With my daughter, it was something we did after arriving home from the hospital. I had a cute little fold out tub that fit perfectly in the kitchen sink! She wasn't too keen on the water in her face, but she always loved snuggling up in a warm towel or robe afterwards. In fact, almost 6 years later, she still does.

Here's one of my favourite pics of my baby girl at 11 weeks old, just after a bath!  

Need some tips on getting your little pumpkin squeaky clean?  Bath time can be  great way for both you and baby to relax, and can be a very helpful part of a regular bedtime routine.  Here are some tips to help make your baby's bath time a success:

5 Tips for Bathing Baby

Tip #1: Start small
Your baby is little, so his bathtub should be too! When you start bathing a baby, it’s easier to do it in the sink, or using a small plastic tub. That way, you won’t have to kneel or lean awkwardly over the side of a big bath while keeping your baby upright. Some baby tubs, like this adorable Winnie the Pooh one, feature built-in toys, ensuring that bath time is fun for everyone!

Tip #2: Get some tub toys
For older babies, the bath can be a great place to learn and explore. Once your little one has graduated to a big tub, introduce them to some squirt toys, fun floaties or sponges. Disney Baby has a great selection of these, featuring characters like Nemo and Friends. Toys can keep your baby distracted and happy, helping make bath time a breeze.

Tip #3: Ditch the daily dips

Babies don’t need to bathe everyday – in fact, daily baths can dry out or damage your little one’s skin. It only takes two or three baths a week to ensure that baby stays squeaky-clean, as long as you stay vigilant about keeping face, hands and diaper area clean between washes. These Finding Nemo washcloths are the perfect way to keep baby fresh between bath times.

Tip #4: Lock in that moisture
If your baby does have dry skin, rub on a little moisturizing lotion, cream or oil post bath. There are plenty of products out there that both you and your baby can use!

Tip #5: Keep baby warm
Wet babies can become easily chilled, so throughout bath time it’s important to keep your little on warm. Ensure that bath water is around 37 degrees and that the air in the bathroom is comfortably warm as well. After the bath, wrap baby up in a soft, clean towel and give him a little snuggle! A Winnie the Pooh Bathtime Wrap keeps baby feeling cozy and looking cute.
