Before you actually think of bathing your infant, be sure that you are ready. And by ready, we do imply being physically ready, but you have to arrange all the toiletries that you would need beforehand. Use a plastic bathing tub or a kitchen sink. Farlin Anti Skid Bath Tub is a good option. The transparent tub helps you to keep a tab on the water level and even has a drainage system that makes bathing time hassle free. The sturdy tub is quiet compact.
The next logical tub after setting up the bathing tub is to fill it with Luke warm water. The ideal situation is to first test the water on your hands before filling the tub approximately around 3 – 4 inches. However, if you want to be extra cautious, investing in LCR Hallcrest Baby Bath Tub Thermometer will be the best decision.

Therefore, for working moms who might let the water running while multi-tasking another household chore can simply relax and let the device monitor the temperature. The duck print range is the most demanded as it helps to catch your infant’s attention while simultaneously uplifting you’re bathing cabinet’s quirky quotient. In case you are sticking to a clean kitchen sink, make sure the head is not directly under the tap.
Once the water is filled and the water is set to desired temperature, immerse your child feet first in the tub and support the child’s neck with your other hand.
