6 Tips for Bathing Your Baby in Summer

In the hot summer, adults can stay in the air-conditioned room for a long time. But for the baby, staying in the air-conditioned room for a long time can easily lead to the decline of the baby’s physique. And the baby is also prone to colds and fever, so everyone should let the baby stay in a ventilated room for a period of time. Pay attention to the following six tips when bathing your baby!

1. Don’t use cold water

You mustn’t bathe your baby with cold water, because the baby’s skin is very delicate and easily irritated. In hot summer, if bathing with cold water irritates the skin, the baby can easily catch a cold. The baby’s constitution is relatively poor, no matter how hot the weather is, it is necessary to take a bath with warm water.

2. Don’t wash too often

It is hot and sweaty in summer, but the frequency of bathing your baby is not as often as possible. It is recommended to taking a bath once a day. Bathing your baby too frequently can easily damage the sebum layer, the barrier that resists external stimuli and keeps the skin moist, causing skin diseases such as eczema and itchy skin.

3. Use too much shower gel

Too much shower gel is not only difficult to clean, but also destroys the sebum on the baby’s skin surface. Moreover, the baby’s body is too slippery and when the parent picks up the baby, it is easy to slip out and fall. It is generally recommended to use the shower gel 3 times a week.

4. Don’t leave baby alone

Many parents do not prepare well for bathing their babies. They leave to get things and leave the baby alone in the bathtub. In fact, this is very prone to accidents, especially for small-month-old babies, even older babies. There is a risk of falling. Therefore, the preparations for bathing the baby must be in place. It is best to put towels, clothes and other items in a place where you can easily get them. Don't leave halfway!

5. Don’t bath after eating

After eating, in order to help the human body digest food and absorb nutrients, there will be rhythmic peristalsis in the stomach, and this peristalsis also has the effect of promoting blood circulation. If you bathe the baby at this time, the blood that is working in the stomach and intestines will be drawn out, and the energy will be distributed to the skin. As a result, food is not well absorbed and digested.

6. Don’t bath directly after sporting

Taking a shower after exercising is a very comfortable thing, but in fact it is not. Taking a shower immediately after exercise is very easy to get sick. Because after exercise, the pores of people will open, heat and sweat, and they will close immediately after encountering water. This will take away the child's heat, thereby reducing the child’s resistance, causing colds, fever and other diseases.
