A splash of joy with bath essentials for your baby

Bath time for a baby is not just about cleaning them up or making them look good. Bath time with your little one is a precious moment filled with giggles, splashes, and lots of love. It's not just about getting clean; it's also a time for bonding and relaxation. As you prepare for this special ritual, here are some baby bath accessories and essentials to make the experience even more enjoyable for both you and your baby. Here’s A Toddler Thing, yet again, a partner in your wonderful journey of parenthood.

Bath time – just a ritual or an important part of your baby's day?

Bath time for your little one is more than just cleaning your baby. It's a beautiful time for bonding with them, having fun with them, and relaxation – for both the parent as well as the baby. 

Bath time isn't just about hygiene; it's also a wonderful opportunity for babies to explore things around them through their senses. Every gentle stroke that caresses the baby is a different experience for them. Every single element – from the temperature of the water, to the fragrance of the soap, the texture of the baby bath towels, and above all the warmth of your love – is crucial in this ritual. Here's why bath time for a baby is more than what it is called - 

  • For cleanliness and hygiene: Without a doubt, bath time is essential to keep your baby clean and healthy. It helps to remove dirt, microbes, and other impurities that can irritate their skin or cause infections.
  • A perfect time for bonding - Bath time is an intimate and special time for you and your baby. It's a chance to cuddle, giggle, and play together, creating a beautiful bond and fostering your baby's emotional as well as cognitive development.
  • A time to wind down before bed - A warm bath can calm your baby’s senses and help them. And if you give your baby a warm bath before sleep time, then they would sleep in no time! The gentle touch of water, coupled with the soothing sounds of mumma’s lullaby can help them wind down and prepare for a peaceful sleep.
  • A time for sensory exploration: The different textures and temperatures around the baby – that of the water, the bubbles, the toys and the towel - kindle your baby's senses. When their body touches all these things, it develops not only their senses but also their brain.

 Bathing accessories to keep handy 

When it comes to bath time, having the right accessories can make all the difference. Here are a few essentials to keep handy:

  •  Baby bath towels: Soft, absorbent towels, made from the finest quality materials are necessary for drying off your baby after their bath. At A Toddler Thing, baby bath towels are made from soft and absorbent muslin fabric, which keeps your baby's delicate skin happy.
  •  Muslin baby blankets: Muslin baby blankets at A Toddler Thing are not only perfect for swaddling your baby but also make excellent bath time companions. They are lightweight, breathable, and gentle on sensitive skin, making them ideal for wrapping your little one up after their bath.
  • Muslin swaddles: Swaddling your baby can help them feel safe and comfortable, especially during bath time. Muslin swaddles at our store are versatile and can be used as towels, blankets, or even a do-it-yourself sunshade during outdoor baths.
  • Napkins: Soft napkins are essential for keeping your baby clean and dry during bath time. Opt for ones made from organic cotton or muslin for a gentle touch on your baby's skin.

What helps, apart from using the right baby bath accessories -

To make the most of your baby’s bath routine, use the following tips besides using the right bath accessories- 

  • Create a warm and relaxing atmosphere by dimming the lights, playing some soft music, and talking to your baby in a soothing voice.
  • Avoid bathing your baby in water which is too hot or too cold.
  • Using a mild, chemical-free soap to clean your baby is absolutely necessary. 
  • Make sure that your newborn baby’s bath time doesn’t exceed beyond 10-15 minutes. For an older baby, it can go up to 20 minutes, not more. 
  • Bath time doesn’t have to be just scrubbing and cleaning. Make it fun using toys, bubbles, and songs to make it enjoyable for both of you. 
  • Don’t forget to gently moisturize your baby’s skin with a gentle chemical free moisturizer after bath. A moisturizer is an essential thing, just like the other things in your baby bath set.

By making bath time a happy and enjoyable part of your baby's routine, you are not only ensuring their hygiene and health but also promoting their bonding, relaxation, and overall development.
