The bathroom is a magical moment for children. Since they are babies, it becomes un an instant of relaxation and enjoyment . As they grow up, the moment of relaxation becomes fun. And it is not strange that the child wants to stay in the water longer than recommended. But, what about the shower? Can it be an alternative to the bathroom? From what age can I shower the child?The bathroom as a place of fun and relaxation for children
It is normal for the child to associate bath time with fun. It is a medium where they play and develop their imagination in a thousand ways.
The bathroom has many benefits for children , not just physical ones. Besides helping to maintain proper hygiene of our child, stimulates your imagination and provides a moment of relaxation. However, dermatologists recommend that the bath not last more than 20 minutes, that the water is not too hot, but warm and that it is not daily, because the skin receives an excess of water that the only thing that does is to dry it. In addition,bathing too much can also destroy the skin's protective barrier (the acid, hydro-lipid and corneum mantle). So, what alternative do I have? When I can move the child from the bathroom to the shower
The shower offers many advantages
. It is true that the child can no longer play as he did in the bathtub, but instead you can shower daily and the skin will not dry out as much. Actually the shower does not understand ages. You can start showering from the beginning, although pediatricians recommend that in the first months we choose the bathroom, because it is more relaxing for the baby and much easier for the mother. A good time to move the child from the bathroom to the shower is when he starts to walk and already stands by himself without needing help. The shower will become a basic hygiene ritual. Little by littleyou can teach him to take the sponge and clean his whole body . Thus, when they are five or six years old, they will be able to do it alone (although always watched and with help).After 10 years, they will be able to wash their hair by themselves and will not need help. Until then, you will have to help him at the time of rubbing his head.
