Get set for safe clean fun with your little one at bath time
Many mums feel nervous bathing their bub for the first time but with a little preparation bath time can be a safe and fun bonding experience. Firstly, lay their towel and anything else you’ll need for bathing within easy reach. Ensure the room is warm and the water is at the ideal temperature (between 36 and 38 degrees celsius). You’ll only need to wash your newborn two to four times a week, until they start crawling at around six months. But if you want to do it daily, bathing is a great way for you and your partner to bond with your newborn.
