1. First, make sure you have everything you need.

✔ Tiny tub

✔ Gentle cleanser

✔ Washcloth and towels

✔ Cotton pads

2. Be sure the water isn't too hot.

Of course, never take your 👀 off your little one.

3. Use one arm to support the back of the neck and head, and the other to clean them with the washcloth.

4. Use the wet cotton pad to gently clean their eyes.

Only use water here and be sure to wipe from the inside to the outside.

5. Use the washcloth to clean all parts of their body, leaving the bottom for last.

Don't be afraid to get the soft spot!

6. Pour warm water over their belly to rinse them off and stimulate their sense of touch.

7. Wrap your hands under their arms to remove them from the tub.

8. Carefully pat their skin dry, then apply a gentle moisturizer.

Baby skin can lose moisture twice as fast as adult skin.

9. And, finally, bundle them up like a baby burrito for some special post-bath bonding time.
