Baby bath is an important activity in maintaining baby's hygiene and health. In the first years of life, children are more vulnerable to infections and diseases, so it is important to start developing healthy hygiene habits from birth.
Washing newborns is one such habit that must be done with care and attention to avoid any potential injury or irritation to the baby's sensitive skin. In this regard, it is important to know the correct steps for washing newborns, to pay attention to the water temperature and to use appropriate care products. Proper hygiene from birth can contribute to the development of a healthy and happy baby.
In general, a suitable temperature for the baby's room is 21-23°C and the optimum humidity is 50-60%. In the room where the bath is to be taken (newborn room or bathroom) the temperature can be increased to 25-26°C. A great help in indicating room temperature and humidity is the TFA hygrometer, which was voted the best in 2018, according to the website "topproduse.ro".
