Newborns do need adjustments in their care. However, this does not mean that this prevents parents from bathing the baby, because if it is not bathed, germs can colonize and cause infection in the baby as well. What is important to note is how to properly bathe the baby. Some of the important tips include:
Use a soft sponge or towel to gently rub the baby's body so it doesn't wet the umbilical cord and cause it to become difficult to dry and shed
the head is cleaned by gently rubbing because the crown is still very soft
bathing too long is not recommended because it can cause dry skin
It is important to choose a care product that is suitable for baby's skin so as not to cause excessive irritation.
Bathing a newborn is not a dangerous thing, as long as we know how to bathe the right principles. Here we attach an article on guidelines for bathing newborns. Hope it is useful.
