    Shocking! Experts Warn Against Bathing Baby Daily To Avoid Harmful Effect

    Bathing Baby Daily

    In a very shocking revelation about child health issues, Dr Sam Hay has disclosed how often you should really be bathing your baby and the consequences of putting them in the tub too often. According to him, bath time may be part of your nightly ritual to assist you to get your little one off to bed, but it might be doing more harm than good to your body.

    Bathing clearly has its own benefits, from removing dead skin cells, keeping us free of odours and helping to clear pores that make the skin function properly – but it is possible to overdo it.

    Dr Sam noted that overexposing your baby’s skin to water and soap can dry out their skin and in turn cause skin conditions like eczema to flare up, and it can also lead to rashes and infections on the baby’s skin. He indicated that the merits and demerits of giving our kids a bath, and just how often we actually need them in a chat with Kidspot.

    According to him, there’s no medical need to give your baby a daily bath – every two to three days is more than often enough.

    He added that there is also a number of factors to look into which may help determine how often you should bathe your baby – from the climate you live in, to possibly skin conditions and how dirty they get throughout the day.

    Dr Hay noted, “Dirty kids of any age need a wash more often. Dirt and grim will increase skin irritation and harbour bacteria, leading to increased issues such as eczema or skin infection.” He continued to state if your child suffers from skin conditions, like eczema, you should pay special attention to their skin as bathing can dry it out.

    To limit the chances of a breakout, reduce the frequency of baths, avoid using soap where possible and moisturise the moment you take them out of the tub to lock in moisture. You could also try using bath oil in place of soap as it is much kinder to the skin.

      How I wish mothers from Nigeria will read this post. Though Dr Sam submission may sound unbelievable. Mothers should protect their new babies from harmful effects of too much bathing.
