Tips For Bathing Your Baby From Disney Baby & a GIVEAWAY!

Mickey Clothing Set Giveaway

I still remember the first time I bathed my babies. Their tiny little bodies touching the water for the first time, splashing their little hands in the sink as I tried to wash their slippery arms and legs.  Oh, how I miss those days! My son is on his way to washing himself now!

Learning to bathe your new baby can be a little scary – there’s a lot to juggle and of course you want to keep your little one safe. But as long you’re properly prepared, bath time can be a great bonding experience and a whole lot of fun! Disney Baby has some great tips on how to protect and pamper your little one in the tub, and some adorable products to help you to do it! From towels and toys to cleansers and creams, Disney Baby has you covered.


Tip #1: Start small

Your baby is little, so his bathtub should be too! When you start bathing a baby, it’s easier to do it in the sink, or using a small plastic tub. That way, you won’t have to kneel or lean awkwardly over the side of a big bath while keeping your baby upright. Some baby tubs, like this adorable Winnie the Pooh one, feature built-in toys, ensuring that bath time is fun for everyone!

Tip #2: Get some tub toys

For older babies, the bath can be a great place to learn and explore. Once your little one has graduated to a big tub, introduce them to some squirt toys, fun floaties or sponges. Disney Baby has a great selection of these, featuring characters like Nemo and Friends. Toys can keep your baby distracted and happy, helping make bath time a breeze.

Tip #3: Ditch the daily dips

Babies don’t need to bathe everyday – in fact, daily baths can dry out or damage your little one’s skin. It only takes two or three baths a week to ensure that baby stays squeaky-clean, as long as you stay vigilant about keeping face, hands and diaper area clean between washes. These Finding Nemo washcloths are the perfect way to keep baby fresh between bath times.

Tip #4: Lock in that moisture

If your baby does have dry skin, rub on a little moisturizing lotion, cream or oil post bath. There are plenty of products out there that both you and your baby can use!

Tip #5: Keep baby warm

Wet babies can become easily chilled, so throughout bath time it’s important to keep your little one warm. Ensure that bath water is around 37 degrees and that the air in the bathroom is comfortably warm as well. After the bath, wrap baby up in a soft, clean towel and give him a little snuggle! A Winnie the Pooh Bathtime Wrap keeps baby feeling cozy and looking cute.

    Years ago I learned a trick for holding the baby more securely in the bath water. It was to use a sock! Cut the foot off an old sock, then put the portion open at both ends on your forearm. Wet the sock and it will help to keep the baby from slipping in the bath water while you’re holding them.

    Toss on a swim suit and get in the tub together! Feeling secure always helps my little ones.

    I would do the sponge bath method to slowly introduce water!

    Start slowing. Keep them in your arms while using a cloth. Dribble water on them. Dip their feet, etc. just baby steps!
