If the newborn baby seems generally healthy, the nursery nurse gives the baby the first bath. Be careful not to get water on the umbilical cord until the umbilical cord attached to the navel is dry and falls off.
If water gets on the umbilical cord, there is nothing to worry about, but if water gets on the umbilical cord, expose the watered umbilical cord to air to dry it. It is recommended that your baby bathe with a sponge, cotton pad, or wet wipe until the umbilical cord is dry. Whenever you change a wet diaper, wash the affected area well with a clean wet towel. If the stool gets on the part of the diaper, it should be washed thoroughly with toilet paper or a wet towel.
When bathing, you should also wash the diapered area with warm water and mild soap. You don’t have to wash the diaper-filled area with water every time your baby urinates. After the umbilical cord has fallen, it is okay to take a bath in the bathtub.
During the first few weeks of life, some doctors say that you don’t need soap.
You don’t need to bathe your baby every day, and you don’t need to wash your hair every day. If your baby vomits breast milk or artificial nutrition and smells or is dirty, you can take a bath. Paper towels that can be washed when the diaper is dirty or when other areas are dirty are often used when traveling or on special occasions.
Scalp dermatitis with an iron scab-like crust can develop on a baby’s head. This dermatitis is called seborrheic dermatitis.
Seborrheic dermatitis is treated with olive oil, baby oil, glycerin lotion, or cortisone ointment. Most seborrheic dermatitis heals naturally without special treatment. Seborrheic dermatitis Newborn baby bath See Bathing for 1-month-old infants.
Your baby’s skin is delicate, fine, soft, and beautiful.
Some types of lotions, oils, powders, cosmetics, etc. cannot make healthy and beautiful baby skin more beautiful. Powdered cosmetics or ointments applied to the skin can irritate the skin and cause dermatitis.
In addition, powder can be inhaled into the respiratory tract and irritate the respiratory tract. Applying too much baby oil or the like for seborrheic dermatitis can make the dermatitis worse. It can also lead to dermatitis.
Even if your baby’s skin is slightly dry, leave it on for several weeks to observe. When bathing a baby, it is important for mom and dad to wash off the dirt on the baby’s body, but it is a great opportunity to look at the baby’s entire body and check the baby’s overall health.
Also, while taking a bath, it’s a great opportunity for mom and dad to play with the baby. More importantly, when bathing, mom and dad can soak up the love of physical contact and eye contact that can be done to the baby.
Giving your baby a bath makes it easier for him to fall asleep.
Mom, Dad, Babies Everyone in the household should give the baby a bath at the right time. We hope that the baby’s dad will give the baby a bath immediately after the baby is born or any time thereafter, give the baby a physical contact, love him with his eyes, and love him a lot for his newborn baby.
