Bathing a baby requires the utmost care and attention. It can be a special, tender moment between parent and child, but must be handled gingerly. According to Baby Center, and echoed by nearly every parenting site, the number-one rule when it comes to bathing your baby is to never leave them alone. This may seem obvious, but a baby can drown in less than an inch of water, so proper precaution must be taken. In the video, you’ll see how attentive Mom is and how delicately she handles her baby while she bathes. She demonstrates an excellent bath time procedure.
Below, Mom undresses her antsy newborn and places him in a bucket of water. Almost instantly, the baby calms down. But it’s no ordinary bucket – it’s called the tummy tub. The tummy tub was developed to create a womb-like experience for a baby and to help transition them into regular baths. As you can see in the video, it works wonders. Mom’s little girl goes from tears to smiles in just seconds. When bathing your child in the tummy tub, it’s important to keep their head above the water. As you can see in the video, Mom delicately places her hands under her baby’s head to keep him upright.
