Baby Bath Time Safety Tips

Make your baby's baths fun, safe, and stress-free with our tips.

Give your baby a sponge bath until his umbilical cord has fallen off. (If he's been circumcised, wait until that heals, too.) After that, he'll be ready for a baby bathtub. Choose one that has a contoured design or an internal sling that prevents your baby from sliding. Never use a bath seat -- these can tip over when the suction cups fail, trapping your child underwater.
