Whether you sing songs or read plastic bath books aloud, bath time allows incredible bonding between you and your baby. As well as, skin-to-skin contact is crucial for your baby’s sensory development.
While some babies can’t get enough of bath time, some babies can’t stand it. Just like any new experience, it can be a shock to their system. Slowly ease your child into it by:
Using a very calm voice.
Choosing a time when your baby is relaxed, not when they’re tired or immediately after they’ve eaten.

Using a Bath Wash cup to gently wash away shampoo and soap.
Ensuring the right water and room temperature (more on that below).
