Bathing your newborn is a little bit scary but it can be a lovely way to strengthen your bond with each other. It is recommended that you only bathe your baby at least thrice a week. Some babies enjoy being in warm water, while others need a little extra time to get used to new sensations on their skin.
Bath time is also a time for touch which is important for the baby’s cognitive and emotional development. When parents rub their baby’s hair and skin, it helps stimulate the nerve which creates a comforting and relaxing feeling to the baby’s skin.
Being squeaky clean makes your baby be in a good mood for the rest of the day. Just like how happy this newborn baby is in this video clip while she was being hair washed by a nurse
This adorable baby girl named Amira Yvonne went viral online after her mom Taveon Glenn shared her video of her daughter getting hair washed by a nurse at Miami Vallet Hospital in Dayton, Ohio.
