If you'd prefer not to bathe your baby every day, a quick 'top and tail' clean will do. Clean your baby's face and eyes with cotton wool and warm water. Use a washer to clean your baby's hands and nappy area. Make sure you support your baby's face and head clear of the water and talk gently to them so they feel safe. In fact, we recommend delaying your newborn's first full bath for at least two weeks. Newborns shed about three layers of skin within their first week, which often surprises new parents.

Cleaning Baby's Face

Start with the baby's face. Use a moistened, clean washcloth or cotton ball to wipe each eye, starting at the bridge of the nose and then wiping out to the corner of the eye. Wash the rest of the baby's face with a soft, moist washcloth without soap. Clean the outside folds of the ears with a soft washcloth. Try our Baby Washcloths.

Cleaning Baby's Ears

All you'll need is a washcloth or cotton ball and some warm water. It's not safe to use cotton swabs or to stick anything inside your baby's ear. Use a Safety Ear Wax Remover for Newborns/Toddlers. If you notice earwax inside the ear, you don't need to remove it. Never put anything in your child's ear canal to remove a foreign body. Removal should only be attempted by a professional with the proper equipment. 

Cleaning Baby's Eyes

It is recommended to clean the eyes of the baby a couple of times a day: after waking up, that is when there is a greater accumulation of secretions. Soak one cotton ball in some warm water and squeeze out extra water. Clean the corners of your baby's eyes, wiping gently from the inside corners to the outside corners. Use a new cotton ball for each wipe. Wipe gently around each nostril to get rid of mucus.

Cleaning Baby's Nose

Wipe gently around each nostril to get rid of mucus. You can use Safety Easy Nasal Booger Remover. It's best not to put anything inside your baby's nostrils. This can hurt the lining of the nose and cause bleeding. Medical experts agree that you shouldn't do it more than three to four times per day to prevent creating inflammation or nosebleeds from irritation. If your baby hates this process and cries or fights it, you're better off skipping this method, or at least waiting and trying another time.

Cleaning Baby's Mouth

Cleaning your baby's teeth is important for keeping their mouths healthy. Without good care, they can get cavities and other problems. Before their first teeth start coming in, though, newborns need their tongues, gums, and inner cheeks to be bacteria-free to avoid potential health issues. Try to use a soft-bristled toothbrush for cleaning the mouth. Moistened the brush before using it. Use it on both teeth and tongue in a circular motion. Try to avoid using the brush on the newborn tongue. Buy Silicone Finger Toothbrush for Toddlers and Baby

Cleaning Baby's Tounge

To clean your newborn's tongue, you should first wash your hands and then take a small piece of moist cloth or gauze around your finger and use it to gently rub the surface of the tongue in circular motions. A newborn's gums and tongue should be cleaned after every feeding. It is important to care for your child's teeth and dental (oral) health from birth. Practicing healthy habits can prevent or reduce tooth decay (cavities) in infants and children. Always clean your infant's gums after feeding.

Your newborn should be bathed with a sponge bath for the first few weeks of life. This is the simplest way to clean your baby before the umbilical cord falls off. Sponge baths are also the best way to bathe boys who were circumcised while the circumcision site heals. 

Bath time might be part of your nightly ritual, but doctors actually don't recommend daily baths for babies. Excess exposure to water can zap their skin of moisture and worsen conditions like eczema. Then again, not bathing your baby often enough can also aggravate eczema, plus lead to other infections. Read Blog about Crusty, Flaky Patches On Your Baby's Skin: Eczema - How To Get Rid Of It
