You need to make sure that the water you use is not too hot for your baby's delicate and sensitive skin. These usually come in the form of floating animals like turtles and rubber duckies so not only will they ensure the right water temperature, but they will also serve as a toy and a distraction for your baby during bath time. This will help to keep your baby calmer and give them something that can help to keep them calm so that bath time goes smoothly.
You can find a baby bath that fits perfectly into a sink or bath tub so that you can bathe your baby comfortably. There are so many options from a basic plastic bath to ones that are padded and look more like car seats. Choose the one that you will be able to work with the easiest because you want both yourself and your baby to be comfortable during a bath.
You cannot just rinse your baby off by using a showerhead or dipping them under the water like you can yourself, so a small rinsing pail is necessary to remove all of the soap and bubbles. Go for some that is small and easy to hold onto so that you can rinse as easily as possible. You also want to make sure that you can easily grip it so that you do not drop it when rinsing.
