Can You Bathe A 4 Month Old Baby With Cold Water?
good morning, I want to ask if a 4-month-old baby should not be showered using cold water ??
Thank you for the question.
Ideally, the water temperature for bathing a baby less than 6 months is between 37 to 38 degrees Celsius, so it is neither too cold nor too hot. This is because, babies who are still very small, the ability to regulate their body temperature is still not very good, so bathing them with temperatures that are too cold risks causing it to experience hypothermia (body temperature drops too low). In babies who are allergic to cold, contact with water temperatures that are too cold when bathing can also make the skin itchy, reddish, bruntusan, bumps, swelling, and even other complaints appear, such as tightness, wheezing, coughing, colds, and so on.
Therefore, you should keep the temperature of the water used for bathing your baby around the temperature range above yes .. Not only that, also make sure the water used for bathing the baby is always clean, and also use special baby products for hypoallergenic and non-irritating babies. its nature. After bathing, dry the baby's body with a clean towel and soft fibrous, then wear it on clothes that are also clean, loose, and soft ingredients.
Hope this helps ...
