Accidents while bathing babies and kids can happen quickly. Below are five tips on bathing and safety for infants and young children, including our recommended and best-selling bath time products (and why we love them):
Pediatricians strongly recommend that you give your infant a sponge bath until their umbilical cord has fallen off (if a circumcised boy, wait until that heals as well). After that, your infant is ready for a tub. Remember, you should never leave a young child or baby alone near water; even for a minute. Keep everything you will need within arm’s reach to allow you to always have one hand on your baby at all times.
Why we love it. The Puj Tub is made from a soft foam that is mildew resistant, and folds and conforms to almost any sink, cradling and protecting the baby during bath time. Designed to not submerge the baby in water, it is great for the sponge-bath period and for the early infant months. Hang or store the tub flat anywhere you would like…even on the back of your door and out of sight!
