After the birth of a child, many parents look forward to giving their newborn a bath for the first time. Once you begin bathing your baby, bath time quickly becomes a staple of your child’s routine throughout the week. As a result, some standard items make bath time easier and more enjoyable. Below are some of our favorite newborn bath products.
While it is technically possible to give a bath to your infant without a tub, it can be considerably more challenging and, in some cases, incredibly dangerous to do so. The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe Newborn to Toddler Tub is a great option for parents who want a tub they can use until their child is ready to transition into a real tub. One of the great things about this tub is that it provides different configurations for a newborn baby versus an older kid.
Soap and Shampoo
One of the more important ingredients to a bath, the soap and shampoo are the products used to clean your baby, making them high priority items on our list of newborn bath products. Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash is a 98.9% natural product that is 100% safe and efficient (Pediatrician tested). It utilizes soy proteins as a natural moisturizer that leaves your child’s skin feeling soft and smooth. Best of all, you won’t find phthalates, parabens, petrolatum, or sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) on the ingredient list.
When it comes to rinsing your baby, there is no substitute for a flexible cup which is why it is one of our favorite newborn bath products. The Munchkin Shampoo Rinser allows you to fold and shape the cup so you can more accurately pour water on the places you want to rinse. This is especially important when rinsing the shampoo out of your infant’s hair while keeping the runoff from getting into their eyes.
Little Unicorn Towel
Once all the rinsing is done, it’s time to dry your baby off, and one of our favorite newborn bath products for getting the job done is the Little Unicorn Hooded Towel Set. Each of these towel sets comes with one hooded towel and one washcloth. The towel is made of a cotton muslin back that is quilted to the terry cloth on the front make a soft and cozy combination for your little one. They also come in a variety of prints, so you are sure to find one you love.
