Bath time? It’s a fun time. Between outdoor play and messy meal times, your little one can get dirty real fast. With the right bath care and toiletries, this daily regime can be a relaxing and enjoyable experience for both mother and baby. From nourishing shampoos to soothing moisturisers for sensitive skin, there is a product made for every bub.
Bathing for your kid is a treasured experience for many parents - it is an amazing time to bond. Bath time is also important to keep your little one clean and hygienic. For starters, a newborn baby requires at least two to three baths per week. To keep this activity safe and fun, your set of baby toiletries is considerably important. Consider getting a secure bathtub and some baby-safe bath toys. Frequent bathing can also dry out the skin, so remember to use a moisturising body wash. It is normal for mothers and fathers to feel anxious during the initial tries - but don’t worry, you’ll soon get the hang of it.
Heat rashes can occur in babies, especially in humid Singapore. Babies are especially prone to this itchy and uncomfortable condition as they cannot regulate their body temperature well, and have thicker skin folds where sweat can become trapped in. One way to reduce this is to use an eczema care cream, along with other skincare products you can find at our kids’ toiletries section. It helps to maintain the skin barrier by keeping it from drying out. Additionally, wipe down your baby regularly, and keep him dressed in lightweight clothing.
A baby cries as a form of communication. If your baby cries during bath time, he or she may be feeling uncomfortable. Check the water temperature with your elbow to make sure it is just nice - not too warm, and not too cold. You can also try to distract him by singing or talking. Some babies, however, simply do not like bathing, or may be experiencing other issues like hunger or pain. So keep the bath time short to reduce the chance of a meltdown. You can also try the Mothercare no-tear shampoo and other toiletries that can help soothe your little bub and keep him happy during bath time.
