Some babies and toddlers aren’t always the biggest fans of bath time. It can be the daily household battle when it’s time for them to jump in the tub. We understand that as parents, you want to make your little ones’ bath time routine as fun and stress free for them as possible. That’s why we’re pleased to introduce our range of educational and exciting baby bath toys for ages from newborn to toddler.
As a new parent, giving your newborn baby a comfortable bath time can be a daunting task. However, with the right guidance and products, you can ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for both you and your little one. The bonding time you have during your child’s bath time has a great effect on your baby’s social and emotional development as well as improving their motor skills, according to studies. For the best experience for both parents and little ones, here are some bathing routine tips for a successful bath time.
Prepare everything. Be sure you have everything you need to hand before starting so your little one has your full attention while bathing. Prepare a mild shampoo and conditioner, bubble bath, toys, a soft dry towel and washcloth. Before starting the bath, make sure the room temperature is warm and comfortable to prevent your baby from catching a chill. Fill the baby bathtub with just enough warm water to cover your baby's legs.
Mild and delicate bath soap. A baby’s delicate skin is different from an adult's skin. The upper layer of our skin acts as a skin barrier to any pollutants that might want to enter the skin. Baby’s skin barrier is different from ours as it’s still in the development stage. Using harsh soap can irritate our little one’s delicate skin and may lead to a reaction. Choose a mild, hypo-allergenic baby soap or tried and tested tear-free shampoo.
Say goodbye to tears at bath time with this Peekaboo’s Skip Hop Moby Bath Waterfall Rinser that is designed for easier rinsing. The soft lip rinser fits snugly to the forehead thus preventing soapy water from getting into their eyes. Check out this Youtube video to see it in action.
Favourite bath toys. There are tons of baby bath toys out there. Choose a colourful one (babies and toddlers love bright colours) to stimulate their senses. A floating bath toy for babies and toddlers allows play, as well as developing hand-eye coordination.
Play with music. Listening to music stimulates different parts of the brain. Channel your inner singer during baby bath time or play tunes on your phone. You can also check out our Boon tones musical boats bath toys if you want to save your vocal chords!
Safety first. Our little one’s safety is the most important factor. The number one priority at bath time is ensuring baby's safety. Never leave them alone, and keep an eye on them. Make sure that their bathtub is safe and the baby bath mat is a non-slip texture. Peekaboo’s products are BPA-free, PVC-free, and Phthalate-free.
When the baby's bath is complete, take them out and dry them with a hypoallergenic fabric, highly absorbent, lightweight and fast drying towel. Lulujo Turkish towels are made from 100% cotton and are stylish, practical, and multi-functional.
