Washing a baby should be a simple process, but parents know it’s rarely that easy when a kid’s stubbornness gets in the way. Some just don’t like bath time, making the fairly-straightforward task of putting them in the tub, scrubbing, and drying incredibly more difficult than it sounds like it should be. While adults have learned (sometimes through the hard way) that you can’t walk around smelling like dirty socks, most kids probably couldn’t care less. If necessity, reason, or even just the simple enjoyment of washing can’t get a kid in the tub, what can?
That’s why Fatherly built this guide to bath time. We scrubbed up and dove deep into the best toys to get kids to play during bath time, songs to help them enjoy it, why some kids are so averse to getting clean, and even the ages when siblings maybe should or shouldn’t bathe together. Stick to this guide and it won’t be long until your kid is hopping in the tub all on their own.
