Getting ready for baby bathtime

Make sure the room is warm (24 °C, 75 °F), because babies lose heat from their bodies quickly. You will need the following items:

  • Basin/baby bath filled with water that is at a comfortable temperature (37 °C). Test it with your hand or wrist — it should feel warm but not hot.
  • A large, soft, hooded towel
  • A soft wash cloth or cotton pads
  • A mild cleanser specially formulated for babies, such as JOHNSON'S® Baby TOP-TO-TOE® Wash
