Bubbles and bonding (with siblings or with you, their favorite au pair!)
Relaxation before bed
Cleaning off the dirt and grime of a busy day
But it’s not all rubber duckies and bubbles!
Bath time can be a minefield of accidents waiting to happen.
It can also be:
A burning hazard
A flooding disaster
A place for serious injury
There is a right way and safe way to give a bath
If you’re alone in the house with a child, take everything you need before you start the bath.
Bring along your mobile phone, make sure nothing’s cooking on the stove, and be sure you have the towels, washcloths, soap and bath toys you will need.
The most important rule of bathtub safety is to never leave a child under 6 alone in the bathtub, not even for a few seconds. Tragically, young children have drowned in only a few centimeters of water.
If you must leave the bathroom to answer the door, help another child, answer the phone, etc., take the child with you and then return to the bath when you can. Always stay within arms reach of the child in the bath.
