As a new parent you learn something new everyday. Actually you probably learn about 10 new things everyday and you learn by trial and error rather because babies aren't born with an instruction manual. Well, have you wondered about what is that you need in order to properly bathe baby?

Infant Baby Bathtub- Babies are very small and bathing your child in a regular size tub will be very difficult and uncomfortable for both you and they baby so do yourself a favor and purchase a baby bath tub. I recommend the Fisher Price Aquarium Bath Tub.

It comes with a sling that attaches to the inside of the tub which you can use to rest your newborn on so they are comfortable and feel secure while in the water. You can remove the sling when as your baby grows. It also features a temperature guide so parents know exactly when they temperature is safe for their baby.

Washcloths- Go ahead and buy a pack of baby wash cloths. Make sure they are made for babies because regular wash cloths can still be too abrasive for your newborns skin.

Shampoo- When your baby is brand new you can pretty much clean them with water but if you want to use shampoo use just a tiny drop and make sure that it is a tearless shampoo so it won't hurt your little ones eyes. That can traumatize them from the start with taking a bath.

Towel- Buy your baby a hooded towel. They are come in adorable colors. This will help keep your baby's body and head warm after bath because you do not want them to feel chilled.

These four items will help you have a success and fun while bathing your baby.
