Babies are the epitome of beauty. The radiance and glow on their faces and body could even blind the moon. Their skin is synonymous with the texture of silk and hence often requires more concentration when it comes to their body care and hair care.
For our little angels who mean the world to us, they require no less than a relaxing spa for the cuteness they bombard everyone’s with. Taxing, right? What we intend with this article is for you to give your little ones their much-deserved royal spa sesh.
Math For Your Baby’s Bath
Gather And Slather That Water
When we think of what makes a baby’s skincare, what comes right off the bat is, Bath time. Most pediatrician and dermatologists have a varied opinion in this case, with some of them suggesting two to three times a week and the other suggesting a bath regularly in both instances not more than ten minutes to prevent the drying of their skin.
So, the bath time ritual should start with you preparing the water for your baby, especially in terms of temperature. Ideally, you can place your elbow in the bath and ensure that the water is warm but not too hot and keep doing this consistently until the water runs cold, which would indicate that the bath time is done.
Bubbles and Frothing bath products are fun to add a dash of memory and joy to your baby’s bath time but the nature of the products seem to be controversial with some suggesting that it might be drying for the baby’s skin. So, it depends on your personal choice followed by a confirmation from the pediatrician.
Gear In For The Routine
Once you’ve placed your angel in the water, make sure to keep them warm after you’ve removed their clothes. Go in with a very tiny amount of cleanser majorly for their dirty areas such as the diaper area and lather it up gently with a massage followed by washing them of the soap quickly, reducing the time of contact between the cleanser or soap and the baby’s skin.
When it comes to their beautiful manes, make sure you massage their scalp gently including their soft spots and rinse them off the product by cupping your hands over their foreheads forming a shield that avoids the shampoo fall off while you rinse them from getting into their eyes.
Wash the rest of their body from head to toe and make sure you have firm hold and control over their body during the entire process. Wrap them immediately after in a towel, to make sure they don’t get cold followed by a doctor recommended, comfortable to sensitive skin kind of moisturiser in an optimal amount to keep them from drying out.
Manicure And Pedicure for Your Baby
A baby’s nail is like a moving bow and archer. That can sharply prick themselves and others around them. Hence its best to keep these at bay by regularly trimming them. It’s not an easy task but what could potentially calm your little ones is to distract them while it’s done. You could either ask your partner or anyone to do it gently while the baby is being nursed. Another tip would be to do it soon after the bath, as the nails would be soft and wouldn’t irritate the baby when being clipped.
A Royal Oil Massage
Soothing, calming and strengthening, an oil massage can do wonders for your baby. An excellent activity to deepen the bond between you and your child, it also helps to smoothen, hydrate and relax your baby’s muscles along with some oil options that have nutrients in them that could nourish the skin of your baby. Some commonly used oils include coconut oil, sesame oil, almond oil, olive oil which are known for their ability to improve blood circulation, promote immunity and hydration.
You could also choose from a wide variety of other oils with such similar properties depending on your baby’s needs with the help of your physician. Ultimately, a good massage can tone the body, support the framework, enhance sleep and aid in the advancement of the central nervous system of your baby. Most dermatologists suggest massaging from the first week of birth, but advise to ensure that your baby is in a good mood before the massage is done.
