Bathing an infant isn’t an easy task and can be an overwhelming experience. Once a baby is wet and then you add soap to the equation, an infant becomes very slippery and are hard to hang on to. Luckily, when you baby is smaller they don’t have to be bathed every day. In fact, your baby probably won’t like bath time until they are a bit older. Keep in mind that even though your tiny newborn can’t splash you, be prepared to get wet.
