BABY’S FIRST BATH

Although Baby’s first bath at home can be a source of concern for new parents, this time will soon become synonymous with relaxation, pleasure, and togetherness. It just needs a bit of organization and a lot of care!

bath-bullet The golden rule: get everything ready in advance! Heat the bathroom to 22°C (71°F). Close the windows to avoid drafts.

bath-bullet Have within reach: – A cleansing hair and body gel specially designed for Baby’s delicate skin. Use paraben-free hypoallergenic products which respect and protect the skin. – A towel or bathrobe (bath towel made of terry cotton with a hood and large sides so your baby can be dried easily without being uncovered). A nappy and clothes ready to be put on.

bath-bullet Run the bath: Check the water temperature with a bath thermometer, as it is necessary that the water is at 37°C (98°F), i.e. the temperature of the human body. It should be neither too hot (risk of burning) nor too cool (Baby will be cold). In any case, the bath should not last longer than five minutes while baby is under 2 months old.

CUTTING BABY’S NAILS

bath-bullet Cutting Baby’s nails is not generally recommended during the first month. At birth, the nails of newborn babies are too soft to be cut. If the nails are already long, you can put special mittens on your baby; these are made of cotton so that your baby does not scratch its face.

bath-bullet While waiting for your baby to become one month old, you can use a (very fine-grained) nail file from the age of 10 days. You can then use round-tipped scissors or baby nail clippers with an ergonomic handle so they are easy to hold. Whatever you choose, it should be suitable for your baby! It is necessary to disinfect the scissors after each use.

CLEANING BABY’S TEETH

The secret of healthy teeth is good hygiene. As soon as babies get their first teeth, they should be cleaned every day.

bath-bullet For Baby’s first teeth (6 to 12 months), it is advisable to use a compress soaked in water, which can be wiped over the surface of each tooth.

bath-bullet As soon as Baby has several teeth (generally from 12 months), you should choose a toothbrush with soft bristles suitable for the age of your child. You can buy brushing sets to help Baby become familiar with tooth-brushing: from a gum brush with soft, silicone bristles (for massaging and relieving gums during teething) to a toothbrush with very soft bristles for the first times you brush Baby’s teeth.

BABY NASAL ASPIRATORS

The manual nasal aspirator
Very effective, as it works by aspiration. The end piece is perfectly suited to baby’s nostrils. From the hygiiene point of view, there is nothing better: it can be completely taken apart and the different parts are easy to wash and sterilise.
The electric nasal aspirator
Effective, ergonomic and easy to clean: Baby’s nose is cleared in just few seconds thanks to the aspiration system with adjustable power. The disadvantage of the electric nasal aspirator is that the noise could scare small babies.
The pear
It is compact and relatively easy to use. Just squeeze the pear to remove the air, insert the end into the nostril, release and aspiration takes places ! However, its aspiration power is limited. The main disadvantage is that it is impossible to clean the inside of the pear properly.
The bellows
Like the pear, the bellows aspirator is economic and relatively easy to use – Aspiration takes place by releasing pressure, as with the pear – but its aspiration power is limited, its advantage is that it can be completely taken apart and sterilised.
