Tips for Bathing Baby

Health & Safety

When your baby is small, bathe her in the kitchen sink or a special baby tub. But as she gets bigger, you may need to move her into the big bathtub. Here are a few things you can try to make the move to a big bathtub easier for you and your baby:

If you use a baby tub, try putting it into the bathtub for a few days and bathing baby inside it.

Bathe baby slowly and gently until she gets used to it.

And, never leave your baby alone in a bathtub, even for a minute. If the phone rings wrap her in a towel and take her along, or just let it ring.
