Tender touch
Make bathtime special. Here's how. Brought to you by JOHNSON'S® Baby.

Bathtime can be a very relaxing and peaceful time to spend together. Your baby's skin is more delicate than an adult's, which is why JOHNSON’S® Baby Top to Toe Wash was developed for the sensitive skin of your newborn. For step-by-step pictures, see JOHNSON’S® Baby’s expert guide on how to bath your baby.

Things to remember

  • Babies become cold very quickly, so bathe them in a warm room and keep a towel handy to wrap them in once you’re done.
  • Place a small amount of JOHNSON’S® Baby Top to Toe Wash on your hand to apply to your baby’s skin and hair. Or add a small amount to the bathwater. Wash your baby gently all over. Rinse with clean, warm (not hot) water.
  •  Take a moment to play and chat, or sing a splish-splash bath song, so he associates water with fun and smiles.

Have a towel laid out on a safe flat surface so you can easily wrap him up and get him properly dry (don’t forget the creases on the neck).
