POST: How to Give bath to ur lil one in winters!
I thought to write this post as when I came to visit my parents in Lucknow after 9 months of my delivery in Mumbai,giving bath to my lil was not a smooth sail.
My baby who loved playing in water as I bathed him and had great time as i poured water on him in Mumbai was scared of bathing in Lucknow.
He was excited for the bath as usual but soon on the first day itself he showed signs of discomfort...
I checked water temperature and it was warm..so I cudnt understand the reason.
That afternoon after I took bath i realized following points to be taken care of when giving bath to baby in winters..
1.Ensure you have sufficient warm water to give bath to baby so that there is no waiting time and you can finish quickly.
2. There should not be any air coming in the bathroom.So,keep the door and ventilation window closed till baby is taking bath.
3.Keep clothes and all essentials items like moisturizer etc ready before bath.
4.Baby bodywash and shampoo are usually in liquid form,which becomes cold in bathroom and baby feels uncomfortable when applied.So,warm it a bit by diluting in warm water or keep the bottle in warm water in a mug for time before application.
5.After bath,dont bring the baby out for drying.Keep towel ready inside the bathroom and bring baby out wrapped in towel,only after nice drying him.
6.Keep the temperature of room warm by keeping blower or heater in room,so that there no drastic change in babies body temperature.
7.After bath ,ensure that baby is wearing adequate warm clothes and ears are well covered.
Also, its not neccessary to give daily baths to baby in winters.Bathing alternate days or once after two days is also ok. Keep baby clean by wiping with warm towel is good option when not giving bath.
Happy Winters to you and baby :)
