  • Many babies love water as it reminds them of the cosy, watery world of the mother's womb.So bathing makes them happy.
  • Bathing baby is important after initial few days it helps better blood circulation. once navel are of baby gets healed bath can be given.
  • Get all required things ready for bathing baby . Two towels ,cotton balls, besan(Bengal gram powder) and milk paste or any gentle baby soap ,lukewarm water, bath tub.I used Chicco body wash for my babies.
  • Lower baby in tub so that her head rest on your hand.wash properly between neck and arm, below arms, diaper area.
  • Apply besan milk paste(Bengal gram powder + milk +pinch of turmeric powder) on complete body. It helps to remove hairs on baby's body if any.Wash it with lukewarm water.
  • Then use baby soap. Wash hair and head while gently massaging.Clean area behind her ears ,nose using cotton balls. Apply soap on neck,stomach ,chest ,hands wash it with water while massaging .Wash babies palms twice as many babies suck fingers so cleaning them becomes necessary.

  • Carefully clean diaper area and legs.

  • Then make baby sleep on her tummy for washing her back.As I gave bath to baby by keeping her on my legs , It was easy to make baby sleep on her tummy .
  • Finally wash with water and cover baby completely with soft, cotton towels tightly.
  • Switch off Fan,AC, Cooler in a room where baby will wear clothes after bath. Soak water completely by towel before wearing clothes .
  • Use soft ,cotton clothes for wearing baby.I used cotton front open shirts and cotton diaper for my baby till she got 3 months old. I preferred only cotton diaper instead of use and throw diaper. It helped to keep rashes away.
  • I preferred breastfeeding to my babies.I breastfed her before bathing as she slept immediately after bathing.
