How safe it is to use bath tub for bathing my newborn?
Hello, bathing newborns should be done by experienced persons. Two persons should be there to give bath.Use a plastic container of 2 feet. Everything should be ready before removing the clothes. Water should not be very hot. One person should hold child in slanting position. Water should be poured by another person and soap should be applied. Everything should be finished off within 5 minutes. Bathing is done. That's all.
I find Indian traditional method better where woman sits comfortably on the floor with her legs stretched out in front of her. The baby is laid, on her back or stomach, between the woman's bare legs and then massaged or bathed. You can use bathtub but never leave a baby alone in water even for a few seconds.
