Baby bathing can be one of the most enjoyable and relaxing times of the day that you can spend with your bub.
When your baby is first born it is easier to use a special baby bath or simply use the laundry sink. You can even take bub into the shower or bath with you. Older babies and toddlers love water play and bath time is a great way to have a special play at the end of the day.
Establishing bath time as a time of fun and relaxation is important for both baby and parents. Bath time can signal the end of the day and is a great way to promote a restful night sleep.
A relaxing bath leads to restful sleep
Babies and toddlers just love having your full attention and the sensory pleasure of being in a warm bath. For sleepy newborns it may be the only wakeful time of the day. Following bath time with a baby massage is a relaxing and nurturing way to teach your baby to unwind. A warm and relaxing bath is a well known aid to promote sleep.
