How To Bathe Your Baby

To give your baby a decent bath there are a few things that you must stick to, aside from which you have more or less free rein to do as you wish. The potential for mishaps is taken as read, and no parent will want to take undue risks when washing their baby, so staying away from those is more or less self-explanatory. For simplicity, it is necessary simply to avoid lifting the baby too much – soap and water do not make for easy handling, and dropping your child is a constant and terrifying fear for parents – prevention is, in this case, a straightforward matter.

In the first six months of your baby’s life, a water depth level of approximately five inches will be fine. The temperature should be somewhere in the region of body temperature – slightly above is best (around 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) as the water will cool from the moment it is in contact with the bath. You can then put your baby in the bath, using one hand to hold up his or her neck and head and avoid it getting bumped. You then wash him or her with a soft handcloth and a small amount of soap. Moistened cotton wool should be used to clean their face, and to moisten any dried mucus before wiping that away.

Rinsing away all soap and any remaining dirt requires a clean facecloth, and then you can dry him or her with a small towel which you can use to wrap him or her. Then you can use a mild moisturizer in order to keep his or her skin soft.

Kids Formal Wear


It’s picture day at school and you want your child to have nice clothes, nice hair, and a nice smile. You want to be able to send out that photo to all of your relatives, even your sister who is always trying to outdo you, and you want that picture to demonstrate that you have a healthy, lovely, smiling, well dressed little angel. Or a beloved family member is getting married, and your kids are invited to the ceremony and the reception. Perhaps your kids have to go to a funeral, which is obviously much more unfortunate than a wedding. This is just a short, obvious list of the formal events that a child might be obligated to attend. There are many, many different formal events where a child would need to have formal wear.

Kids formal wear is not unlike adult formal wear. Dresses that are the appropriate length with the appropriate patterns are necessary for formal wear. Jackets and little ties, even clip-on ties, and of course, the appropriate shoes. Childrens formal wear ranges in price, like all clothing does. But it tends to be more expensive than the more casual play clothes. But on the other hand, formal wear will probably last longer, because it is only worn on certain, rare occasions.

Childrens formal wear is mainly available anywhere that sells any children’s clothes. Sometimes childrens formal wear will be on sale or on special clearance. That will help people afford the nicer formal wear, but formal wear doesn’t have to expensive in order to be appropriate.
