What bath products do I need for a newborn?

Newborn baths have been debated by many for years and years. While some claim sponge baths with only water are all that’s needed up to about a month-and-a-half of age, others begin to use baby bath products on their newborns right from the day they bring baby home from the hospital. You should always check with your own pediatrician to see what they say is best for your child before you buy or invest in a new line of the best baby washes and shampoos.

If you do decide to wash your baby with more than just water, you’ll need to choose the best baby bath products you can find to make sure they’re well taken care of. Here is a checklist of everything you may need for baby’s bath time:

  • A baby bathtub (you can also use a sink)
  • A washcloth for baby’s soft skin
  • Non-irritating, gentle baby soap and shampoo
  • Possibly a rinse cup
  • A towel and baby lotion for afterward

Should I wash my baby's face everyday?

Here’s the thing — you should make sure baby’s face is clean every day, but that doesn’t mean you’re washing it with soap and water every day. In between bath times, your baby’s face can get covered with milk or formula leftovers, drool, and other forms of buildup. With that in mind, make the time to wash baby’s face off gently with warm water and a washcloth when you feel like it’s really needed.

As far as baths are concerned, they also aren’t needed every day. Most pediatricians recommend bubbling up around three times per week until your baby starts to crawl, eat solid foods, and get messier.

For tub time, you’ll want to make sure you have the best baby soap and the best baby shampoo on hand to get your baby their cleanest, while still protecting their extra sensitive skin. Please remember before you make any big decisions about your little one, you should always ask their doctor first.

Can you use baby wipes on a newborn's face?

You can use baby wipes on a newborn baby’s face. Natural baby wipes are made so gentle that you can feel comfortable using them on your baby’s bottom and face — that’s probably why so many parents and caregivers carry them with them wherever they go. They’re so useful, aside from just messy diaper changes, because they’re extra soft and mellow on baby’s brand-new skin. There are also some types of wipes that specifically are called out as face wipes like these Seventh Generation Baby Wipes.

Are no wipes in sight? No problem — you can also use a washcloth with warm water to wipe off your newborn's face when needed. For other products you can use to wash up baby, check out Grove Co.’s wide selection above of the best natural baby shampoo and bath supplies.
