SUPERVISION​

Never ever ever leave your baby unattended

...not with siblings

...not even for a minute

...even if they are in a bath seat

...even for a few seconds

DON'T FORGET

• Drowning happens quickly & silently in as little as 1" of water and in seconds

• gather everything you will want (soap / washcloth / towel / diaper / clothes)

 if you forget something, take the baby OUT of the tub & WITH You

TEMPERATURE

 

• 2" of water is enough for their bathtime

• test temperature with elbow and wrist

• when water gets cold, end bath

WASHING

 

• use a small amount of mild baby soap

• no bubble bath

• cradle baby's head with one arm & wash with other

AFTER BATH

 

• towel dry quickly to prevent loss of body heat

• be sure to dry in skin creases

• empty tub immediately

BATH SEATS

 

• bath seats can help during bath time BUT they do not prevent drowning

• use a hard plastic, contoured tub with textured bottom or sling (or baby can be bathed in sink)

CPR & SAFETY

 

• learn infant CPR

• close all toilet seats

• keep floor dry so you don't slip

• help your baby enjoy bath time & HAVE FUN in the water!

 • when your baby turns 1 or starts crawling, consider SWIM LESSONS that teach floating on the back
