While babies will always make messes, and bathing baby means you both get wet, there are some ways to turn bath time from a chore into fun for everyone.



- Always test the temperature of the water with your elbow. You're going for that Goldilocks temperature –– just warm enough to help babies relax, but not too cold that they are uncomfortable. A warm washcloth on baby's tummy will also help keep them warm.



- While babies don't need a full bath every day, parents should clean their faces, necks, hands and feet daily –– and, obviously, their bottoms during each changing.



- Go bubble crazy. Who doesn't love bubbles? Even very little babies will enjoy watching bubbles float and pop. Show toddlers how to make a "bubble Mohawk" using soap to spike their hair –– you're sure to get a more than a few giggles.
