Yea.. it is safe.. i hv seen lot of ppl do it.. esp in maharashtra.. at my place also legs par laita kar nehlate the..

Yes its safe but your baby is only 10 days old. Sponging is enough for yr newborn.

I hv also seen this done by konkani bais. But my baby was 4 mnths old. I wasnt comfy with that so i wud make her sit in my lap :)

While bathing few people do so n it doesn't affect the baby if a well known baby sitter does that. Nothing will happen in few seconds. But make sure it's not slippery and hold the baby properly.

Do not worry dear. She is doing right. She is doing his upside down to avoid entry of water and soap in the digestive system, which may cause distress to the baby. So don't worry and trust her experience...

Yeah its safe but ur baby is nly 10 days old..sponging can b better..

Never had any of this experience. I actually didn't let anyone do anything with baby which my heart doesn't allow!

Yes it is safe ..this is an old school way of giving baths to babies
