Spending time with your baby in water can be a wonderful experience which will encourage them to love being in water rather than being afraid of it. However, babies can easily become startled in water and build a fear associated with it. This can have long lasting effects from traumatic bath times; for you and them, to a fear of learning to swim.
Children quite naturally love water and this stems from a very early age, babies will enjoy being bathed soon after the birth. Make bath time a fun playtime for them, as they can soon get bored. Bath your baby at least twice a week. Try to involve both you and your partner or relative so you can both hold your baby and play with them.
Make sure the water is not too hot or cold, between 32°c and 37°c is ideal. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting wet and have towels handy to mop up any splashes. Babies’ movements are uncontrollable and their limbs could jerk in all directions giving you a good soaking! Don’t let this bother you as your baby will pick up on this and could become tense.
The Prince Lionheart story began humbly in 1973, when they crafted handmade rocking horses in their garage. Over the years, they've grown along with the children who used those rocking horses. Now adults, they are having kids of their own and they're happy to share the joy of parenthood with them and millions of other families worldwide.
Their products are designed in part by their customers. They hear customer concerns, and implement these ideas. They listen. That is their commitment to you.
They've moved out of the garage but, after three decades of innovation, they are proud Prince Lionheart is still family-owned. In this, our anniversary year, we celebrate family - yours and ours.

- Although it is not necessary to bathe baby every day, it does make a great time for baby and parent to spend some quality time together and to establish a goo bedtime routine.
- It is easier to use a small baby bath which has been designed with babies and parents comfort in mind. Using a standard bath means you have to bend over and lean awkwardly which gives you less control, so it makes sense to use a baby bath when your baby is small.
- It is a good idea to assemble all the equipment you need in advance and make sure the water is at the correct temperature for your baby, 38 degrees centigrade is ideal as this helps babies retain their body heat.
- For new born babies up to the age of about 6 months, only fill the bath with approximately 5 inches of water, or enough to cover your baby’s shoulders. For older children, never fill the bath above waist height when they are sitting.
- Once your baby is in the bath, ensure his head and neck is well supported. Use soap sparingly as you wash him with your hand or a flannel or sponge from top to bottom, front to back. Use moistened cotton wool to clean his eyes and face. Rinse thoroughly with a clean flannel.
- After the bath, wrap baby in a towel and pat dry. If his skin is dry, or if he has nappy rash you can apply a mild moiturising lotion.
