Mastering the art of baby bath time requires thought, care, and action.
After all, it’s not only about cleanliness.
It’s also a wonderful bonding and relaxation exercise for both you and your little splasher.
Curating a consistent and calming bath time routine will make this daily ritual more enjoyable and help your child develop a sense of comfort and security.
In this blog, we'll guide you through the steps to create a bath time routine that will encourage your tiny tot to crave a bath.
What’s more, we’ll introduce a product that will elevate bath time - Greendigo’s Tub and Bub collection.
Here we go!
Synchronise your clock
Pick a bath time when both you and your bub are relaxed. A lot of parents find that the evening, just before bedtime, works best. This can help signal to your baby that it's time to wind down and prepare for sleep.
Round up the supplies
Before you begin the scrub-a-doo, gather all the necessary supplies. You will need a baby tub or sink, gentle baby soap and shampoo, a plastic cup, a towel, a clean diaper, and fresh clothes.
Cultivate a safe setting
Safety comes first. So, fill the baby tub with a few inches of warm water. Test the temperature with your elbow or wrist to ensure it's comfortable for your baby. Keep all the supplies within arm's reach. And don’t leave the bathroom door ajar!
Create a soothing atmosphere
Minimise distractions during bath time. Bright lights and loud music can overstimulate your baby’s senses. Instead, opt for soothing sounds or gentle humming that will foster a relaxing ambience.
Treat your baby’s skin with care
Use a mild, hypoallergenic baby soap and shampoo. Gently lather the soap and cleanse their body (a soft washcloth is optional). Make sure to pay attention to the folds and creases. Also, be cautious around the face.
Bond as you scrub
Use this opportunity to engage with your baby. Pour water gently over their body, allowing them to experience the sensation. You can even introduce bath toys to stimulate their senses and encourage them to explore.
Wrap them in love
Once bath time is over, wrap your baby in a soft, warm towel. Make sure their head is well covered to prevent heat loss. Also, pat them dry instead of rubbing them in order to avoid irritation.
Greendigo’s towels from the Bubs & Tubs Collection are pure bliss.
Crafted from the softest GOTS-certified organic cotton, these towels are highly absorbent and lightweight, gentle on delicate baby skin, and stay luxuriously soft and plush with every wash.
They are efficient at drying off your little one after a bath or swim and also make for the perfect attire for post-bath snuggles.
Some of our towels come with attached hoods, as well, offering an additional layer of protection for the head.
And where else will you find such artfully embroidered pieces?
From starfish to seahorses, corals to boats, our towels are expertly embellished for parents who appreciate beautiful bath wear.
Additionally, Greendigo organic cotton towels are packaged in multi-purpose, reusable pouches that can moonlight as holders for your little ones' knick-knacks.
It’s to elevate baby bath time with premium towels that are good for the planet.
