Bath Time is Fun Time with Johnson's Baby Skin Care Rituals9/07/2014Shen
Bathing my child is the most daunting task ever! Nothing ever prepared me for the first day of bathing my baby. Especially when her cord was still intact! But was what was scarier and a lot more difficult was when Claud turned three months. That got our bath time to luha time!
- Swaddle Bathing – even at 3 months, Claud can still benefit from swaddle bathing even if she’s bigger. The enclosed space still helps in settling a baby because it mimics the moments when she was in the womb.
- Diaper Care – Oh, the part that most parents stay away from. But for me, I love changing my daughter’s diapers. It’s with diaper changes that I know my baby is doing well and eating enough. Every time I would see her poop yellow and curd-like, I do happy dance! Hahaha! But there are a few things that I didn’t consider before but now have incorporated into baby’s grooming time.
- Soak and Seal – Baby’s skin look so perfect, but really it isn’t. It dries up easily and this leads to skin irritation. I’m not a fan of those. Especially that my baby is prone to bungang araw.
- Touch Therapy – I make sure to give my baby a massage everyday. It’s the perfect time for me to bond with her other than our breastfeeding time. This is my favourite part! Studies shows that babies who has frequent skin-to-skin contact with their mother and those who had daily baby massage are closer to their mothers. J
As a new mom, we need all the help we could get but with all the information out there, it’s easy to get lost and feel overwhelmed. Johnson's Baby Skin Care Rituals were developed in partnership with IMAP and the Association of Women’s Health Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN). For me it’s the easiest way to get acquainted on how to care for our baby! It answers all the questions we Filipino moms have about newborn care. No need to second guess yourself! At this point, everything is taken cared of and all we have to do is enjoy every moment we get to spend with our child.
Thanks to the J&J Baby team, Baby Claud and I appreciate all the learnings from your Baby Skin Care Rituals.
