Bathing & Diapering
There is no technique more important than the bath for keeping your baby happy and healthy. With so many bath options on the market, it can be difficult to find the perfect product to fit your family’s lifestyle.
The three things you should look for in a baby bath include size, durability, and the changing table.
Size: Your baby’s bath should be large enough to accommodate your baby and any people helping during the bathing process. A bathtub that is too short can leave your baby and helper uncomfortable and with less room to maneuver.
Durability: One of the most frustrating issues that parents come across when selecting a product is finding one that can stand up to the wear and tear of daily use.
Changing Table: A changing table is quite obviously important for a baby because you will be doing laundry every day. They need to be close to the washing machine for convenience. There are many to choose from so it is important to do your research before you buy one.
Although newborns are not expected to have a bath every single day, there are quite a handful of baby bath essentials every new parent ought to purchase and store beforehand for the ease of bathing their newborns every three times a week.
If you have ever had the chance to have a baby in your life, you know how much work it can be. Of course, you want everything to be perfect for your little one, and that includes their bath.
Baby Bath Essentials:
Baby Bath Tub
When you’re looking for a bath for your baby, one of the most important things to consider is the size and shape of the bathtub. The size and shape of the tub will vary greatly depending on the model you get. If you get a rectangular tub, it will be much easier to keep your little one in one spot than if you get a round tub. Another important thing to consider is safety.
Baby Bath Cloth
Baby bath cloths such as baby washcloths, baby hooded towels, etc are important to make sure the baby has a safe and smooth bath time. While purchasing baby bath cloths, it is important to look for features such as size, design, compatibility, water absorption, softness, absorbency, and price. Make sure to get your baby bath cloths from a reliable store that offers all these features at reasonable prices. Besides the cloth material, parents need to make sure they have three or more washcloths for the baby as washcloths aren’t only used while bathing a baby, but for dry-cleaning as well due to sudden spilling of milk or mini-vomit session while feeding.
Baby Grooming Essentials
Although baby grooming kits come in a pre-packed version with so many things, it’s recommended for parents to purchase only the necessary items separately. Yes, if you get a kit that has 12 different things in it, it is quite cheap to purchase, we agree. However, in a baby’s case, it’s best to opt for quality over quantity items.
An Ideal Baby Grooming Kit contains the following items:
Baby Hair Brush & Comb – Most babies don’t have a lot of hair, particularly, when they’re just newborns who are weeks old. However, it is better to brush their hair now and then because they’re almost always sleeping and so their hairs are always messy.
There is nothing much to say about baby combs and hairbrushes. All you need is a comb that has round, flexible bristles making it safe and comfortable for the baby’s head.
Baby Nail Clippers – Although many people recommend baby nail clippers to clip those teeny-tiny baby nails, we also suggest trying baby nail scissors! All you have got to do is look for baby nail scissors that are curved, which makes them easy to use, and the blades of which are rounded; making it almost impossible to accidentally cut the teeny’s finger skin.
Nasal Aspirator – When do you use a nasal aspirator? When your baby has a cold and is all stuffed up, it’s impossible for them to blow their nose and get the boogies cleared out. This is where a nasal aspirator comes in handy! There are different types of nasal aspirators for babies. You need to make sure to purchase the one that works well by you. Something that’s easier for you to use on your baby.
Baby Thermometer – Again, although there are a variety of baby thermometers, we suggest rectal thermometers because they are the easiest to use and are pretty precise too! The alternative is a temporal artery thermometer, which is a lot more expensive and not quite as accurate, but not at all invasive.
Apart from these main baby grooming essentials, parents will need to invest in diapers, either cloth or disposable, wipes, and urinals for potty training. Parents don’t have to stress on urinals for potty training at the early weeks of the baby. Potty training can be done between the ages of 18 and 24 months.
