Bathing a newborn

Many people wonder how to handle bathing a new born if they have never done it before. They are so tiny, and they get slippery and sometimes you feel like you just don't have enough hands!

With my oldest I would do a wipe down most days. On other days I used the baby bathtub. I didn't like using it in the big bathtub, so I filled it just a bit and then put a big cushy towel on the floor under the baby tub. That way I could sit and have everything on the floor next to me that I would need.

You can also use many baby tubs in a larger sink if that makes you more comfortable.

    I was soooo scared to give my husbands newest baby a bath cause he was so little lol after the first time it wasn't a big deal.
