Tips For Bathing Your Baby the Right Way

Written by Gloria Irabor

As a First Time Mum (FTM), you might often get confused about the right tips and techniques to use in taking care of your baby’s skin and health generally.

Bathing time is one of the best times to bond and play with your baby. Bathing your baby, the right way ensures that your baby’s skin remains soft and supple and free from dirt.


Usually babies are not comfortable while bathing and often feel irritated due to water splashes and even temperature. It is however important to make your baby’s bath time an enjoyable and comforting experience with the right tips and products. Use safe products with natural ingredients on your baby’s skin, which help keep the skin clean and hydrated.

Here are few tips to apply in giving your baby a pleasant bath experience:

Use a safe cleanser

Use a gentle and refreshing baby soap infused with the goodness of herbs that is gentle on the skin. Ingredients like Watermelon, Vetiver, Neem, Lemon Oil, Champaca, Olive Oil, Almond Oil, Chickpea, Fenugreek, and Green Gram are known to nourish and moisturise the skin and help prevent post-bath dryness.

Use warm water not hot water

Hot water robs the skin of moisture and leaves it dry. Bathing a baby with warm or lukewarm water keeps your little one feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Pay attention to hair wash

It is important to regularly cleanse your baby’s hair and scalp. This helps get rid of cradle cap. A shampoo enriched with the goodness of Chickpea, Hibiscus, and Vetiver is mild and nourishes the hair and scalp, making it healthy and shiny.

Plan and stick to a bath time routine

Having a fixed bath time from early on helps set a routine in place. A morning bath routine makes your baby alert and fresh, while a night routine calms your little one and promotes good sleep.

Duration of bathing

Bathing a baby for a longer duration robs the moisture from the skin. In summer, a bubble bath/tub bath in lukewarm water for a little longer duration can be refreshing.

Moisturize baby’s skin after bath

This will help prevent it from drying out. Use a baby cream or baby lotion which will soften the skin and keep it hydrated for longer.
Note: Do not make use of products that have parabens, phthalates, alcohol, mineral oils and artificial colors.
