You can start using the shower at any time with your baby. It is really trial and error as to whether they will like it or not. Here are a few tips to make your baby showering experience more fun and a little easier.
Have a dry cloth nearby to wipe the eyes if water gets into them.
Wearing a t-shirt while holding your baby stops them from becoming too slippery.
Remember that the floor of the shower will become a little slippery as you use soaps or shower gel, so be careful.
Encourage singing in the shower, it really does sound different to your little one.
Using a facecloth is more effective than a bar of soap as it is not quite so slippery and it is easier to use with one hand.
Massaging your baby with baby lotion after a shower can be an effective way to help soothe and relax your little one and get them ready for bed time.
