When you give your newborn a bath it can be scary and make you nervous. Do not immerse your newborn in water until their stump falls off. You can give them a sponge bath or a bath using a wash cloth. I held Noah in a towel when I bathed him. I would just uncover whatever part I was washing so he wasn't cold. If you are washing your newborns hair, use a wash cloth to rinse it. Trying to use a bucket or bowl will make a mess. If your hospital offers a class on bathing your newborn check it out. It will help make you more confident in bathing your baby.
