Whatt??!! They showed you how to bathe your baby ONCE in the hospital, and now you’re supposed to do it on your own???
Let’s face it: You’re sunk (pun intended 🙂 ). After all, if you hold on to him too tightly, you’ll break him–but if you don’t hold on tightly enough, he’ll drown.
I recommend watching this video a few times and then doing a dry run (pun intended again…) with a doll (no, seriously).
Then go for it! It’ll be fine. Really.
And one more thing: Does your newborn HATE being bathed? If so, stop torturing him! After all, how dirty could he possibly be? Keep his bottom clean (duh), and wipe the spit-up from the creases in his neck with a warm washcloth. One bath a week (MAYBE two, but I am not convinced) should be plenty. He’ll grow up a bit, and then it will start to be fun for the both of you.
