Organic, dermatologist-tested baby care
1. Cover the Basics You want to make sure that the bath is warm—not hot. The ideal temperature of the bath should be around 100 degrees F. If your baby tub doesn’t come with a thermostat, you may wish to consider purchasing one. Otherwise, always run your hand under the water while you fill the bath and do a final touch test before starting the bath time ritual. Lastly, be sure to keep all of your essential bath supplies within reach, which typically include: -body wash -shampoo -towels -small washcloths -diapers -clothes/pajamas 2. Use Gentle Bath Formulas Sure, it’s great to make bath time fun. But in addition to providing an *immersive* (pun intended!) sensorial treat while getting nice and clean, we also want to make sure we’re giving our babies the nourishment their skin needs. For that reason, when possible, aim to use bath products that are: -naturally derived -dermatologist-tested -free of synthetic fragrances With that said, may we suggest opting for Mini Bloom’s Fresh N’ Clean 2-in-1 Hair and Body Wash? It’s gentle on your baby’s skin thanks to soothing ingredients such as aloe leaf, chamomile, and green tea leaf extract, and more. 3. Incorporate Gentle Massage If you love and deserve a spa moment as a busy parent, you may be surprised to learn that your baby can benefit from one, too. Mayo Clinic references a range of potential benefits of infant massage, which include: -fostering connection with your baby -encouraging relaxation and sleep -helping to reduce crying -reducing stress responses You can incorporate a mini massage during bath time by using gentle pressure and taking a bit more time when washing up. Make sure to watch out for any cues—such as smiles, grimaces, and flinches—to see if your baby enjoys the additional TLC and if you need to adjust your approach or touch. Note: There’s a time and place for tickling, but this isn’t it! 4. Add Some Rhythm To make bath time more fun for you and your baby alike, we recommend listening to a bath time playlist that you both can look forward to hearing. It’ll also ritualize the routine and signal that it’s time to get down to bath time business! To groove out while sudsing up, boogie down to Mini Bloom’s Bath Time Playlist on Spotify. 5. Stay Present and Show Love Of course, this final tip is essential not only for bath time but also for general parenthood. Whether your baby is fussy in the bath or loves soaping up, you want to make the routine as enjoyable as possible for them. However, you’ll benefit your baby and yourself alike by staying engaged throughout the entire sudsy song-and-dance. Approach bath time as a moment to look forward to in your week and as a built-in time for bonding, rather than another to-do on your list. Leave the rest of your concerns and obligations behind, take note of the love and care you’re giving to your baby by nurturing their skin and senses, and truly revel in this one-on-one time. Before you know it, your baby will be big enough to bathe on their own, so make sure to fully enjoy this quality time while it lasts.
