Bath time is an important ritual for young children and can be a great bonding experience for parents and babies. But bath time doesn’t always go as expected, and sometimes getting your baby to like bath time can be a challenge. This guide will provide tips for making bath time enjoyable and calming for both parent


Step-by-Step Guide:

1. Start with a warm environment – make sure the temperature of the water is comfortable, and make sure that the room is warm enough too. This will make the experience more pleasant for your baby.

2. Get creative – make bath time fun by incorporating their favorite toys, books or music. You can make bath time into a game or allow them to make some of the decisions when it comes to bath time like what toy they want to play with.

3. Be positive – make sure to make bath time a positive experience by using encouraging and soothing language when talking to your baby during their bath. Talk about how much you love them and what a great job they are doing.

4. Use rewards – make sure to reward your baby for good behavior while in the bath. A simple ‘good job’ or a kiss and hug can make bath time fun, instead of something to dread.

5. Make it quick – make sure not to make bath time too long, especially if your baby is not enjoying the experience. The shorter the bath time, the quicker they will be out of the water and on to a more enjoyable activity.

6. Save shampoo for last: make sure to save shampooing for the end. Shampoo can make your baby’s eyes sting and make them uncomfortable, so make sure it’s the last thing you do before getting out of the bath.

7. Stay calm – make sure to remain calm during bath time. Some babies can sense when their parents are stressed and agitated, so make sure to take a few deep breaths if you become overwhelmed.



Taking the time to make bath time a positive experience for your baby can make a huge difference. You can make sure that bath time is something that your baby looks forward to and enjoys. This will make the bath time easier for both parents and babies. Good luck!
