Can I bathe in the same bath with the newborn? Opinion of doctors and mummies
Bathing with a baby in one bathroom, is it harmful for him?
Many moms are worried about the question – can I take a bath with my newborn baby, will not the baby harm because of germs, etc. First of all, they are interested in the opinions of doctors about this.
There are several contraindications for bathing with a child:
- The umbilical wound did not heal. Until it heals, water procedures should be abstained.
- If the adult is not healthy (in the main it is skin diseases) or feels bad – joint water procedures with the child are also contraindicated.
But if these contraindications are not available – you can take a bath with the baby. Just before starting water procedures, be sure to pray yourself.
Why should I bathe in a bath with a newborn, according to doctors, still possible? Well, you yourself think, in your bed, where sometimes, probably, your baby sleeps, bacteria is not less. And yet you can remember about the urban basins or reservoirs, where children bathe together with other people.
On the forums there are absolutely opposite opinions about bathing in the bathroom with the child. Some mummies believe that this is absolutely normal, while others are categorically against it. But most mothers converge in one; Before you get into the bath with the baby, you need to consult a doctor.
Anna: Why not? I’m just completely calm about this. We not only bathe, but we sleep together. The kid likes it, so I do not see anything like that.
Selvia: We swim with my daughter together with 3 months. Recently, however, we stopped doing this, because my daughter began to like swimming with her brother. Happens, minutes on 20 splash together. It’s convenient for me, but he’s already a big enough boy, so this, of course, is not very good.
Alyona: Do you have nothing to do? It is not easier to wash yourself first, and then wash the child separately? Why to him in the bath then climb? First, it’s unhygienic. Secondly, adults can have any infections that can infect a child. And in general it is somehow not good, because the child after a year begins to remember certain moments from your bathing together, which can badly affect his psyche. It’s one thing to swim together in a river or a lake – it’s really fun, and in the bathroom – quite another. People wash in the bathroom usually for personal hygiene purposes. You would have thought of walking in the toilet at the same time.
