Oh, bath time—the time of day that your little one will either love or hate. But whether it’s the most anticipated activity or not, there’s no denying that it’s a need for babies, toddlers, and adults alike. How can you make the experience fun, safe, and relaxing on a regular basis? Here are some expert tips from True that can help you deal with bath time whether you’re a new parent or not.
What you need to know: Newborns have very sensitive skin and because of this, it’s encouraged to bathe them 3-4 times a week only. Since they don’t have much activity aside from sleeping and milk feeding, wiping their face and body with a damp cloth is enough to keep them fresh and clean. Once your baby starts to eat solid foods at roughly six months old, you’ll find the need to bathe him/her daily (sometimes even 2x a day) to keep your baby clean and smelling fresh. Make sure to look for a gentle but effective body wash that will protect your baby’s skin from dryness and irritation.
How to make it fun: Make bath time interesting by singing songs to your baby. Since newborns have blurry eyesights during the first few months, singing a bath song will help communicate to them what’s going to happen next–water will be poured and a mild, fragrance-free wash will be used on their tiny bodies.
What product can you use: True Baby Natural & Clean Head-to-Toe Wash
Your baby’s skin is subject to a lot of changes during the first year that’s why it’s important to use a product that’s mild. True Baby Natural & Clean Head-to-Toe Wash is made of certified natural and clean ingredients that are hypoallergenic to help transition your baby’s skin throughout the first year, preventing common issues such as redness, dryness, and rashes.
What you need to know: A two- or three-year-old can get very dirty within a very short span of time. Whether it’s because of crawling in the garden, trying some finger painting, or simply running around under the heat of the Philippine sun, your toddler will make you run for the nearest shower with them in tow. Having to bathe more often now, you’ll want to use a cleanser that is not too harsh and can still make your toddler smell like a baby all day–we know you miss it!
How to make it fun: Change things up a bit every now and then. If you regularly bathe your toddler inside the bathroom, you can change it up with bathing him/her in the bathtub or maybe even in the garden with a hose. It’s not the ideal setting but your toddler will surely look forward to their bath time that’s masked as play time.

How to make it fun: Light some scented candles, dim the light inside your bathroom if possible, and prepare a nice long warm bath. If you have a baby or a toddler, ask your partner to take care of them first so you can get an uninterrupted and much needed me-time.
