Hey momma in the house is it advisable to add detol to a new born bathing water?
Better to use a cleanser suited for newborns.
No! No water to be given until after 6months when they start solids as it can cause water intoxication, the signs of which include grogginess, confusion, drowsiness, twitching and seizures. Medical professionals say that drinking too much water especially in children under the age of one, may dilute a baby’s normal sodium levels and can lead to seizures, coma, brain damage and even death.Also, water contains empty calories, which means that supplementing your young infant with it will fill him up without adding calories. This can result in insufficient weight gain or even weight loss.Anonymous

- Do you feel confident to bath your new born baby? I am afraid of bathing my new born baby as I feel my hands are small.
Please get a bathtub with infant bath sling so that you can bathe your newborn with both hands instead of having to support your newborn's body with one arm. I find that very strenous on the body. You can get the Fisher Price Sling n Seat bathtub, Summer Infant Bath Insert or Stokke bath insert. I bought the Fisher Price tub from a baby fair at about $90 but the infant mesh slings can be purchased from Mothercare at about $30. I bathed my baby together with my husband and father when her umbilical cord fell off. http://www.toysrus.com/buy/bath-tubs/4-in-1-grow-with-me-tub-bdy86-30444126Anonymous
