Bath-time has many benefits for baby besides just getting her clean. Some of these benefits include soothing and comforting baby, learning/play, and emotional/bonding. Bath-time soothes and comforts baby just as it would an adult. Warm water relaxes baby and helps her to calm if upset as well as getting her ready for a night-time sleep after a day full of play. Bath-time is also a learning play-time for baby as she sees a cause and effect reaction when you and she make splashes in the water. Baby will also use hand-eye coordination as she tries to grasp bath-toys and play too. She is also learning as you clean and talk to her. Bonding is an additional benefit of bath-time. Mom and dad can both have the opportunity to bond with baby at bath-time as she listens to your voice and spend this special time of day with her. Bath-time is just another way baby is learning how you take care of all her needs and love her so much!
