The key thing for me is the temp of the water. Needs to be just right because sensitive ang skin ng baby, too hot or too cold will hurt/upset her. Make sure also you have everything you need at arm's length: washcloth, baby wash, towel.

I'd have to agree with what you said! :) do you also use your elbows to check if the bath water is just right? i heard this technique is being passed down from one generation to the next as the best way to check the water's temp. :)
unless, there's a new and better way to check if the water's just right for baby.

great tips trueblue14!

keep posting more tips or even stories mommies! :)

ang tip ng mom ko when i had my firstborn, dapat laging alalay sa head at neck ni baby lalo na pag di pa niya kaya mag isa i-support yung ulo niya. saka wag rin biglain na nakahubad si baby, so parang ganun rin yung concept ng swaddling bathing di ba? isa pa, yung pagbuhos ng water, naku, dapat dahan dahan talaga,

kayo mommies, saan nyo pinapaliguan yung baby nyo? ako kasi dati, nung newborns pa sila, di ko kaya sa bathroom. what i did na lang is may naka set up na table kung saan pwede ilagay yung bathtub, yung mga pangligo ni baby and kung saan sya pwede ayusan after bath. nakatulong talaga siya para di agad mapagod yung likod ko.

mahirap kaya yung magpaligo ng baby sa banyo haha! pero nung nag 3 months na si baby, dun na kami sa bathroom :)

For the water in a basin, I measure the temp with my elbow.
