Gugu Guru’s Infant Bathing Tips

Our friends at Gugu Guru partnered with the Baby Safety Zone and Krista Horton of Top Knot Mama to create a series of helpful information for new moms.  This month, they are focusing on bath time.  We were lucky enough to be able to reuse some of their best tips below.

Safe Infant Bathing Tips

If you’re unsure about bath time, the first step is to Google it.  Your search will likely lead you to the Baby Safety Zone.

Baby Safety Zone Infant Bathing Tips:

  • Collect all bathing material before starting the bath.
  • Typical water temperature for baby is 90-100 degrees.
  • Never lift tub or seat with baby in it.
  • No water should be in adult tub or sink.
  • Keep adult drain open when using baby tub.
  • Bath seats should only be used with child who can sit unassisted.
  • Ignore distractions – never leave your child unattended.

Essential Bath Gear

Based on Krista’s lifestyle and budget, Gugu Guru recommended the following gear for all of her bath time needs:

4moms Infant Tub

“This tub does all the dirty work for you. I love that it monitors the temperature for you and beeps if the water is too hot. I also love how it filters out the water during the bath so my baby could have warm, fresh water the entire bath!” – Krista

Little Giraffe – Splash & Dry Set

“Cutest, softest little set! I love the material and the size was perfect because a lot of baby towels and washcloths are too small for my liking!”
