Bathing your baby

Babies are very delicate. They need special care in every term whether it’s eating, bathing, sleeping, etc. while bathing your baby you have to be more careful as their body is so much soft to hold. You have to take care of sensitive body parts as well like nose, eyes, ear, mouth, neck and fingers.

There are some tips for bathing your baby by the Best Pediatrician in Noida, Dr. Vipin Jain.

  2. Wash your baby’s face regularly, clean genitals and bottom after each nappy change.
  3. You could add a little mild, liquid baby cleanser or bath emollient to the hard water to protect your baby’s skin. Don’t use the emollient much it will make your baby slippery to handle.
  4. Make a time table to bathe your baby every day. 
  5. Always use fresh cotton pads to wipe your baby’s face, neck creases, and hands. 
  6. Start by wiping each of your baby’s eyes starting from the corner near nose.
