Bath time is a special time to be with your child. While you are shopping for baby-friendly products for bathing, try the Johnson's Head-to-Toe Gentle Tear-Free Baby & Newborn Wash & Shampoo. This two-in-one is not only paraben-free and sulfate-free, but also hypoallergenic. Whichever formula you choose, make sure it is tested by pediatricians to make sure it is gentle enough for the whole family. You want to wash your little one’s delicate skin with the purest ingredients. The best products will avoid stripping away your child's natural protection from oils and sebum. So, get out your softest washcloth (or wash mit) and begin the splishy-splash moments. When you two are all finished, wrap him/her up in a cozy towel to dry off. How cute are the hooded towels?!
Skin Types Vary
You can also find products from Aveeno that are specifically formulated to reduce irritation when your child has sensitive skin. We love that Aveeno is gentle enough to use every day and is created with soothing natural oat extract. Check out Aveeno's site for skin care specific products- from dry skin to itchy skin, to eczema and sensitive skin. Give your precious babe some TLC while nourishing their dry skin with products that restore and retain moisture.
Never leave your baby unattended in a bathroom as he/she could slip and fall or down in the tub bath. You can make your bathroom safer by adding runs to prevent slipping on wet tile floors. Here are some great options for non-slip, eco-friendly mats. We have linked the Amazon listing to our favorite- Boon's ripple textured non-slip baby bathtub mat with hanging hook and drain holes.
How's The Water?
Always check the temperature of the running water to make sure the water will not scald your baby. Any child under five years of age should have supervision in the bathroom. You can check out even more safety tips on our blog here.

Make sure bath toys are drying out properly and not growing mold and bacteria inside. Also, keep an eye out to make sure your child is not digesting any very small bath toys or toy parts.
