I'm so nervous to give my baby a bath once he comes! What supplies do I need to keep him safe?

Relax -- bathtime may be scary at first, but it's definitely not as difficult as it may seem. Actually, for many new moms, baby's bathtime is a daily (or weekly) treat. Use this guide to make them most of the experience. (Items with a * are must-haves.)

[  ] Baby bathtub

[  ] Baby soap*

[  ] Baby shampoo

[  ] 2-4 soft towels or hooded baby towels

[  ] Baby hairbrush

[  ] Soft washcloths (use a different color or pattern than your diaper washcloths!)

Q&A: Bath supplies for a newborn?

I definitely recommend the baby bath that fits into the kitchen sink, as that is a back saver. When purchasing the Baby Soap and Baby Shampoo, please do a little research and avoid the products that are full of chemicals! If you go to www.CosmeticsDatabase.org, search for the "No More Toxic Tub" scientific results to learn about baby and toddler products that are FULL of harmful chemicals.

In our birthing class there was a pediatrician there for Q&A...they said while there is nothing wrong with buying all the baby bath products, to save a little money Dove unscented or sensitive skin soap bar works just as good as anything.

I prefer to use Dr. Bronners unscented baby soap. It doesn't have any chemicals in it and I can use it for his hair and body. It is really mild and doesn't cause the skin irritation that many of the others did. It is also fairly inexpensive and you can get it in either liquid or bar form. I use it for myself too since I have sensitive skin.
