A new born baby does not necessarily need to be bathed once a day. Some babies have different health conditions so it is best if you ask your pediatrician how often you should bathe your child depending on his current medical situation. As long as you keep the baby fresh and clean from diaper changes, 3 or 4 times a week of bathing would be sufficient. Getting the right tools and bathing accessories for your baby should be one of your priorities. These should be downright mild and gentle because of the baby’s sensitive skin during this period. The shampoo and soap should never be harsh or strong, or else, it could have adverse effects on your baby’s skin. Aside from that, a natural bath sponge would be much recommended to use compared to washcloths or other types of sponges that are available in the market. Towels are still not guaranteed to be soft enough so be careful when purchasing them. Other types of sponges such as loofahs or the ones made of plastic are not very good to use because they are not soft enough for your baby’s skin.
Baby Buddy offers a natural bath sponge that is made from sea wool that is naturally absorbent and soft when wetted. A tiny drop of soap on this would create such a creamy lather that is perfect for your baby’s bathing needs. Aside from that, it is very easy to clean and it is inexpensive. Babies love to hold it while you are shampooing his hair or washing other parts of the body.
