Safe Newborn Bathing

As a new parent, there's nothing quite as delightful and rewarding as giving your precious little one their first bath. However, it's natural to feel a tad nervous about this important milestone. Ensuring the safety and comfort of your newborn during bath time is paramount, and that's why The Indi Mums is here to guide you through the process.

At The Indi Mums, we understand the significance of using natural and gentle products for your baby's delicate skin. Our range of organic baby care products, infused with the goodness of "Soapnut" or "Reetha," offers you a natural way to keep your baby clean and safe. In this blog, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of bathing your newborn safely using our products.


Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Before you begin, ensure you have all the necessary items within arm's reach to avoid leaving your baby unattended. You will need:

The Indi Mums Baby Handwash: Our organic handwash gently cleanses and sanitizes your hands before handling your baby.
Soft, clean towels: Use these to dry your baby gently after the bath.
The Indi Mums Baby Floor Cleaner: Keep the floor clean and free from any potential hazards.
The Indi Mums Baby Bottle Cleaner: If your baby's bath involves cleaning feeding equipment, our natural bottle cleaner is perfect for the job.
The Indi Mums Baby Laundry Detergent: To keep your baby's clothes clean and chemical-free.

Step 2: Preparing the Bathing Area

Select a warm, draft-free room for the bath. Lay a soft towel on a flat, secure surface like a changing table or a bed. Ensure the room is comfortably warm, as newborns are sensitive to temperature changes.

Step 3: Check the Water Temperature

Before placing your baby in the water, ensure the bathwater is at a safe and comfortable temperature, around 37 degrees Celsius (98.6 degrees Fahrenheit). To be extra cautious, you can use a baby bath thermometer. Always add cold water first, followed by warm water, to avoid any accidental burns.

Step 4: Undress Your Baby

Gently undress your baby, leaving the diaper on, and wrap them in a soft towel or blanket. This will keep your little one warm and secure while you prepare the bath.

Step 5: Use The Indi Mums Baby Handwash

Wash your hands thoroughly with The Indi Mums Baby Handwash before touching your baby. Our organic handwash, enriched with the goodness of "Soapnut" or "Reetha," ensures that your hands are clean and free from harmful chemicals.

Step 6: Time for a Soothing Bath

Carefully place your baby in the water, supporting their head and neck with one hand while using the other hand to gently bathe them. You can use a soft washcloth or The Indi Mums Baby Floor Cleaner for a natural and chemical-free bath.

Step 7: Clean and Sanitize Baby Items

If you're using any baby equipment during the bath, such as toys or feeding equipment, make sure they're cleaned and sanitized beforehand using The Indi Mums Baby Bottle Cleaner.

Step 8: Rinse and Dry

After a gentle bath, lift your baby out of the water and wrap them in a warm towel. Pat them dry softly, paying extra attention to skin folds to prevent any moisture buildup.

Step 9: Dress Your Baby

Put on a clean diaper and dress your baby in fresh, comfortable clothes, washed with The Indi Mums Baby Laundry Detergent.

Final Words

Bathing your newborn can be an intimate and enjoyable experience for both you and your baby. By following these simple steps and using The Indi Mums' organic baby care products made with "Soapnut" or "Reetha," you can ensure a safe and chemical-free bath time for your little one. Remember to cherish these moments, as they are the building blocks of a strong parent-child bond. Happy bathing!
