Essential Tips For Safe Toddler Bath Time

When it comes to newborn bath time, the utmost care is put into every detail to make sure our baby is safe, comfortable and that their new skin is carefully cleaned. 

As they grow, we become more comfortable bathing them and let go of the nervousness and fear as we take in the joys and memories of such a precious time. 

Accidents can happen just as easily as with a newborn. Luckily there’s simple steps you can take to be sure that bath time is as safe as it is fun!

1. PREPARE

Making sure that all you will need for bath & after are right on hand in the bathroom with you keeps you from having to possibly leave the room to go grab something as simple as a towel.

2. TEMPERATURE

Just like newborns, you need to be sure that the water temperature is comfortable for a toddler. It’s best to run the water and then shut it off before putting your toddler into the tub.

3. SLIP RESISTANT MAT

Bathtubs are so slippery and a fall could really hurt or injure your child but a simple no-slip mat can prevent that! Don’t have a mat? Place a towel on the bottom of the tub!

4. REMOVE POSSIBLE HAZARDS

If your toddlers’ bath is shared with older siblings or yourself, be sure to remove things like adult soaps, shampoos and razors.

5. USE SAFE PRODUCTS

Your toddler’s skin is still sensitive and relatively new, so making sure you use products that care for their hair and skin the way you take care of them is important.
