Baby Hygiene: 7 Daily Care Tips

Baby Hygiene: 7 Daily Care Tips

Besides being very important, bath time is also a great opportunity to bond with your baby. Here are 7 simple gestures to perform daily!

Cleaning the Eyes

Cleaning the eyes is the first step in your baby's bath. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before starting the bath. Gently rub a cotton pad soaked in physiological saline solution over the baby's eyelids. Remember the corners of the eyes and be careful not to press too hard. Use a different cotton pad for each eye.

Cleaning the Ears

Ear cleaning is the second step in the baby's bath. Avoid using a cotton swab as it can hurt your baby and damage their eardrums. Remember that their ears are still very sensitive! Instead, use a piece of cotton folded into a cone shape and run it only over the external ear and the edge of the ear to clean it properly and prevent wax buildup.

Cleaning the Nose

Cleaning the nose is the third step in the baby's bath. But be careful, your baby's nose is also very sensitive. Proceed in the same way as for the eyes. Roll a cotton pad soaked in physiological saline solution and clean it carefully. Change the cotton between each nostril and remove any secretion. This is often the least appreciated moment of the bath, especially for babies.

Cleaning the Umbilical Cord

The cord usually falls between the 5th and 15th day of your baby's life. Until it falls off, it's important to take care of it. Disinfect the umbilical cord daily with a sterile compress and a suitable antiseptic. Gently dry with a clean compress and let the cord air out.

Facial Cleansing

Don't hesitate to clean your baby's face as often as needed. Use a cleansing milk and a round cotton pad. Don't forget the neck and the back of the ears, and repeat the operation until the cotton is perfectly clean.

Genital Organs Cleaning

Bathing your baby's intimate areas should be done after every diaper change. You can easily find special wipes that are easy to carry and can accompany you throughout the day. You can also use damp cotton. It's important not to forget this area. In boys, you should avoid opening the foreskin before 4 months of age.

Hydration

Your baby's skin is still very fragile, so it's imperative to protect it with daily moisturization. Choose a cream suitable for their skin type, i.e., richer if the baby has dry skin. There are very good creams specially formulated for baby skin. Note: diaper rashes (redness on the buttocks) are very common in babies. In this case, avoid washing automatically after every diaper change; 1 to 2 times a day will be sufficient. Use an appropriate cream as well.
