Bathing your toddler can become an experience in itself. Your toddler can now sit up unaided in the bath and play independently. You may have a hard time getting them into the bath, and an even harder time getting them out again.
Bath time can be a wonderful time of the day for everyone involved, especially for toddlers who enjoy water play. They may not even notice they are being given a wash at the same time!
Here are a few toddler bathing tips:
Give a few minutes warning before bath time so that your toddler will be ready to move from their current activity and to avoid any protests.
Even though your toddler is used to sitting up, they should not be left unattended while in the bath.
It’s also a good idea to implement the “no standing in the bath” rule from a very early age.
Allow some independence and encourage them to start washing themselves.
Bath toys are great fun for a toddler. Try to rotate them to keep bath time interesting.
A pair of goggles in the bath can be their first introduction to swimming with their face in the water.
