The moment of the bath is one of the most exciting in the relationship between parents and children. It can happen that it is a moment of true pleasure for both, relaxation, meeting and space to share games or confidences, or vice versa, stress, noises, fights between siblings and between parents and children.
All parents have lived or will live the two situations ... Someday if we have time, or if we are rested or in a good mood, we can enjoy a lot of the child's bath, or if we are all tired or in a hurry, it can stress us more. But, cuándo when is it convenient to bathe the baby for the first time? The first baby's bath
Children are very grateful for the evening bath as part of their daily routine. The ideal is to accustom them from the first days to the bathroom before the last take before going to sleep.
In the hospital at birth you usually wait a few hours to give them their first bath
, so they get used a little to the temperature of the outside world. In general, they are usually bathed in the afternoon. The hospital bathroom is not very nice for the baby, really. The water is warm, but that first impression does not usually please them; the water falling on his head, the noise, the sponge to remove the traces of childbirth ...Already at home the bathroom should be more endearing ... We must prepare a bathtub not very large, one of the suitable for babies. With warm water - templadita. There are water thermometers for babies, but it is not necessary, it is enough to try it with your elbow or your hand. Of course, do not forget to try it every day, because we have seen in the hospital burns in the bum or back of the baby for this reason.
The water should cover the baby to the middle of the body
. Thus the baby is practically submerged in the water, as in the maternal womb, and will not miss the situation. On the other hand if we put little water, you will feel cold and will not be comfortable.A natural sponge should be used, wash it after bathing with hot water and change it frequently to avoid fungi. It is advisable to use
one sponge for the body and another one for the culete .A neutral soap should be used, with pH suitable for the baby's skin
. In general, we recommend using soaps bought in the pharmacy during the first months of life, that do not have much perfume because they can irritate the skin of the baby, and also mask the smell of such a nice baby.Hair and head do not need to be washed every day , but they love it, and with a mild soap, nothing happens.As the months go by, we will discover the dads how our son likes to swim, if he wants to spend a lot of time in the water or, on the contrary, he wants to go out to dinner or play fast. It will also depend on our haste, and interests do not always coincide. I recommend you to enjoy the moment of the bath whenever possible, since they are moments that will not be repeated when they are older.
