How to Give Your Newborn Baby a Bath In a Bathtub
After your infant’s umbilical cord falls off, you can bathe them in a baby bathtub. Follow these steps to safely bathe your baby:
- Fill the tub with a small amount of water. Usually, 2 to 3 inches of water is enough. Some tubs can be placed in the sink or regular bathtub, depending on the model you have.
- After undressing your baby, place them in the water right away so they don’t get cold.
- Use one hand to support your baby’s head and the other to place their feet first into the tub. Their head and neck should be well above water at all times for safety.
- You can gently splash or pour warm water over your baby to keep them warm in the tub.
- Use a washcloth to clean their face and hair, and shampoo their scalp one to two times per week.
- Wash the rest of their body from the top down, using warm water or a wet washcloth.
- Gently lift your baby out and pat them dry with a towel. Be sure to also dry the creases in their skin.
Remember to never leave a baby unattended in a tub, even for a second. They can quickly drown, even in a shallow amount of water.
How hot should the water be?
The water temperature to bathe your baby should be warm, never hot.
The ideal temperature is 98.6°F (between 37°C and 38°C).
You can use a bath thermometer to monitor the temperature or check the water with your wrist or elbow to confirm it’s warm and not hot.
Also, check different sides of the tub or baby bath to confirm there are no hot spots. If using a tub or basin, turn on the cold water first and then the hot water to fill it.
If you live in a house, you can also adjust the water heater to ensure it doesn’t go above 120°F (48.8°C), which can badly scald your baby’s skin.
You likely can’t adjust the water heater if you live in an apartment complex or condo.
How often do babies need baths?
In your baby’s first year, they may only need about three baths a week. This is usually frequent enough if you wash the diaper area thoroughly every time you change your baby.
Bathing once a day or every other day is also OK, but any more frequently than that could dry out your baby’s skin.
That’s especially the case if you use soap or other baby wash.
