Never Leave Your Baby Alone in the Bathtub!
Bath time can be a fun, special time to share with your baby. It’s also a time for caution, though.
Keep these bathing tips in mind so your little one stays safe while he gets squeaky clean:
- The first and most important rule is this: Never, ever leave your baby unsupervised, even for a minute. Children can drown in less than an inch of water. So gather all the supplies (soap, towel, clean diaper, clean clothes, etc.) you’ll need ahead of time, and keep at least one hand on your baby while he’s in the water. If the doorbell or phone rings and you feel you must answer it, scoop up your baby in a towel and take him with you.
- Make sure the bathroom is comfortably warm (around 75 degrees F). Babies can get chilled quickly.
- Don’t put your baby into a tub when the water is still running. (The water temperature could change or the water could get too deep.)
- Make the family tub safe: Bathtubs are incredibly slippery, so outfit yours with a rubber bath mat for more secure seating. A cushioned spout cover can protect your baby’s head from painful bumps. Also, be sure that any sliding glass shower doors are made from safety glass.
