Baby bathtubs are much more complex than regular adult bathtubs and come with many accessories. Many parents do not know how to use them, so how exactly should baby bathtubs be used?
Before bringing your baby into the bathroom, parents should prepare fully, including preparing soap, shampoo, change of clothes, comb, etc. As babies are small and cannot stand during bathing, a specialized bathtub for babies under 6 months should be used to prevent slipping. Usually, babies can start using a bathtub after birth, but make sure to prevent the baby from catching a cold and avoid ventilation during bathing.
Place bath water in the tub and after testing the temperature, hold the baby's back with one hand and place it in the tub to be cleaned. The water should cover the baby's belly to prevent the navel from getting cold. When washing babies under a month old, mothers must use one hand to support their babies' heads and the other hand to wash them. Regardless of the brand of baby bathtubs used, babies should not be left unattended in the tub, even with safe baby bath products that can enhance the safety of baby baths, parents should never be careless.
Some careless parents will overlook the precautions when washing their babies. What should be paid attention to when using baby bathtubs?
Pay attention to safety: Regardless of the brand of baby bathtubs, babies should not be left unattended in the tub, even with safety products that can enhance the safety of baby baths, parents should never be careless.
Prepare in advance: All necessary items should be prepared in advance before bathing.
Emergencies: If someone knocks at the door or the phone rings during bathing and you have to answer it, wrap the baby in a towel.
Do not put the baby in the tub while adding water. During the process of adding water, the temperature and height of the water will change. Before 6 months of age, only 5 to 8 centimeters of water depth is needed, and for larger babies, the water depth should not be higher than their waist height (when sitting).
Cool water should be added to the baby bathtub first, followed by hot water.
