THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED
There’s a national search for The Cetaphil Baby! To be considered for this prestigious title, all you have to do is share cute baby bath time photos with the hashtag #CetaphilBabyBathtime. The Cetaphil Baby will be featured in online ads, will receive a generous supply of product and will participate in a professional photo shoot.
Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.
After experiencing the Cetaphil Baby line, I must share with you how impressed I am with it. This line is wonderful for baby’s delicate skin! It is a subtle, more sophisticated fragrance than your typical baby products, and they also contain organic calendula, an extract from the marigold flower that helps soothe and calm the skin. The washes are great because they’re not drying at all and the Wash & Shampoo is gentle and tear-free. The lotion is ideal for everyday use and the moisturizing oil contains no mineral oil – instead the main ingredients include sunflower seed oil and sweet almond oil. It’s difficult to compete with ideal products … I also love the fact that all Cetaphil Baby products are free of parabens and colourants!

July is known as the month with the highest number of babies born in Canada*. To help parents prepare for their new arrivals, Kelly offers tips on how to bathe newborns correctly and safely.
Kelly Bourne’s Baby Bath Time Tips
Sponge bathe your newborn – Delay tub baths until his umbilical cord detaches. Soaking or excess moisture can promote bacteria growth. Instead, sponge bathe your baby.
Bath water temperature – The bath water should be 37 degrees Celsius. To be certain, use a bath thermometer. Eventually you’ll learn to gauge the water temperature with a quick test on the inside of your wrist to ensure it’s not too hot.
Cradle Cap – Babies often develop cradle cap. It’s a harmless condition and will eventually go away on its own. If it bothers you, using a natural oil followed by a gentle cleanse of your baby’s scalp helps to remove the scales.
Be prepared – A wet, slippery, wiggly infant is hard to hold onto. To keep your baby safe, lay out all essential bath items within reach ahead of time.
Use baby wash – It’s a misconception that you don’t need a cleanser while bathing your baby. There are many oil based irritants that can end up on your baby’s skin. Water alone may not remove them and using a washcloth with no cleanser can be harsh on the skin. Cetaphil Baby Ultra Moisturizing Wash contains 1/3 baby lotion and lets you cleanse delicate skin gently.
Keep baby warm – Place washcloths on your baby’s chest and arms as you pour water over her body. This provides a little more insulation and warmth during bath time.
Bathe every few days –It’s a popular misconception that babies need a bath every day. Bathing too frequently may dry the skin. Every few days is ideal. In between baths, cleanse with a sponge to keep baby fresh. After bathing, use Cetaphil Baby Daily Lotion to help moisturize and protect the skin.
Proper form – There is a technique to move your baby in and out of the tub. One may be tempted to cradle the baby. It’s better to support her head and bottom with your hands rather than using a cradling position.
Bonding with Dad – Dads today are more involved with their children than ever. Bath time gives Dad a great opportunity to share in the bonding experience with baby.
