STEP 2: FUN BATH

After receiving the Healthy Massage, your baby is ready for a bath. Fun Bath is the second step of Zwitsal Baby Spa to keep the baby clean as well as to nourish and care for their skin and hair. According to neuroscience, in the early period after birth, your little one still needs the feeling of gliding in the water as how it is inside the womb. This condition helps to maintain the sensitivity of the vestibular system (the ability to balance the body on different kinds of bases) to allow your baby to stay active.

Fun Bath also provides stimuli for your baby because in the process, temperature changes both inside and outside of his or her body, stimulate the sensitivity of the capillary blood vessels (the nervous ends on the skin surfaces).

  • In the first weeks, your baby does not need a lot of bathing because he or she does not sweat from activities. Bathing your baby once daily is enough.
  • Choose a small tub and it only needs to be filled with warm water up to 6-8cm of height.
  • Bath and wipe your baby slowly with a very soft sponge for 3-5 minutes.
  • Clean the scalp, folds in the thigh, the neck, the back of the ears, and the under arms gently.
