A step-by-step guide to bathing your newborn
Bringing your newborn home and getting used to a brand new set of routines to look after him may be a bit daunting, especially if you are a first-time mum. Bathing your little one is one such routine.
You might be anxious about how you should hold your baby in a tub full of water, or wondering just how warm the water should be. Should you bathe your newborn the day you bring him home or should you wait? And what about safety when it comes to bathing your infant?
This gallery provides you with the answers to these and more, using cute illustrations that show you exactly how to bathe your newborn, as well as clear instructions.
But before you start reading any further, do note that you should wait until your little one’s umbilical stump falls off before you bathe him in a bathtub. Until then, sponge baths will do just fine.
Before we get started on the seven steps of bathing your precious angel, please familiarise yourself with some important safety tips on the next slide.
