Are you worried about how fussy your baby gets during bath time? If so, you’re not alone. Tons of new parents go through tough periods with baby bath time, and there are a number of different ways that you can help baby de-stress during bath time. From using the best baby wash to changing the bathing environment, you can easily change baby’s attitude towards bath time and turn it into an event where the two of you can bond and enjoy each other’s company.
Use the Right Baby Bath Products
For some babies, stressful baths are caused by the wrong baby bath products. In truth, there are quite a number of different baby washes out there that contain harmful ingredients that can cause irritation to a baby’s skin. If this is happening to your little one, it’s a simple fix. You just need to find the right baby wash that’s made without the addition of harmful preservatives, such as parabens. Baby Magic offers a variety of calming washes that are made to protect and nourish your baby’s skin during bath time. Changing your bath products could really make a world of difference during bath time and ensure that baby’s skin is soft, smooth, and protected.
Set Up a Calming Environment
When your baby is fussy about taking a bath, it’s a good idea to try and relax the environment. Although some parents don’t consider this right away, lots of noise and activity during bath time can actually upset some babies and make for a difficult time. You can try to eliminate baby’s fussy behavior by setting up a calming, relaxing environment in the bathroom or bathing area. You may want to dim the lights and eliminate any loud noises before you settle baby into the bath. Once you’ve created a relaxing environment, then you can break out the baby wash and give your little one a gentle scrub.
Add In a Little Fun
While some babies prefer calming baths, that’s not going to do the trick for every baby. Your little one may prefer to have some fun in the tub, and it’s your job as a parent to help bring on the fun. You can do something simple, like use baby wash to create bubbles for your baby to splash about in, or you can go all out and get some super cool baby bath toys for baby to enjoy. Whatever you decide, try your best to make baths a fun affair sometimes. It will definitely make bath time so much less stressful!
