Bathing a baby is one of my favorite activities. It can be such a great relaxing time for you and the baby. Older kids also love to help out if your baby isn't the first one on the block. Here are some baby bathing basics. Remember to talk to the baby as you are bathing. If you're unsure of what to say, simply tell them, step-by-step what you're doing. They love this interaction and it stimulates their brain and makes them feel more comfortable.
