Just the right temperature
According to research, the best temperature for kids to bathe in is around 38°C .
If the water is too cold for your little one, he may start disliking bath- or shower-time. So, make sure that the water is nice and warm before making your child step in.
Groove to the beat
Distract your little one from the dread of taking a shower by playing his favourite songs during bath time. You can also practice your own singing skills and make up some silly bath time songs to belt out together.
With these musical tips, your child will focus more on the music and less on resisting against being bathed.
In time, he will start associating bath time with his favourite music, making it an altogether fun experience.
Equip your child with a pair of goggles, floaters and other fun bits of swimming equipment. Pretend that your tub is a swimming pool and indulge his imagination.
Teach his some fun strokes and silly moves and you might soon have the next Singaporean Michael Phelps on your hands!
No more stinging eyes
The reason some kids hate taking a bath is due to one or more bad experiences with soap or shampoo getting in their eyes and stinging them.
Get rid of that fear and purchase baby-friendly PH-balanced shampoo and soap.
You can easily find these at pharmacies, personal care and natural product stores, as well as popular baby product outlets, and they will help keep your child smiling right through bath time for sure!
Include toys to make bathing more fun. From the old school rubber ducky to a transformer figurine, children will look forward to playing with their favourite toys during bath or shower time.
Do remember to clean and dry all toys thoroughly once bath time is over to prevent nasty mould and dirt from accumulating on them.
Mini personal hygiene shopper
When you go on your next shopping trip, take your child along. Allow him to choose his own shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc. Throw in a bath toy for good measure.
Given this opportunity, your little one just might take practising personal hygiene more seriously and also relate it to having fun during bath time.
Why not lure your child into the shower with the promise of loads of bubbles?
Whether it's blowing soap bubbles or making a silly bubbly hat or beard, your little one is sure to have a blast!
We've even sourced a product that not just creates the bubbles your kid loves, but also protects his skin and is gentle enough for even a 2-year-old child to use.
