A baby bath always starts with the proper preparation of the baby and the room. The best time to bathe is before bedtime and before feeding the baby.

The bath foam insert immersed in water will allow you to place the baby in the bath safely and soak it gently. Proper profiling of the sponge prevents the baby from sliding down. A slight tilt that keeps the baby’s head higher than the legs, protects the eyes and ears from splashing water. It should be remembered that children are usually afraid of deep or splashing water. When the head and face are wet, they respond by clenching their fists and nervously contracting their hands and feet. The little one feels secure when held firmly and securely.

In a bathtub full of water, in the absence of experience, it is difficult to accomplish this task. The tub’s foam sponge inserts provide comfort for parents and children. Resting the baby on the foam support allows the baby to make free movements with both hands. Therefore, you can use suitable cosmetics without any issues to reach the most hidden corners of the child’s body. The bath begins by washing the face and neck, then the tummy, arms, and legs, and finally the genitals and buttocks. Safe washing, without accidental splashes or nervous movements of the bath foam support, will relax the baby. This activity will also be an opportunity to give lots of hugs and to calm baby down. It will contribute to establishing a strong bond between the child and the parents in a pleasant atmosphere.

You will certainly come away with a more relaxed, peaceful, and relieved baby or child.
