Baby Development at 9 months/ Bathing your baby

At 9 months your little one is so active that it might be hard to keep up. Make sure to keep any small or hazardous objects out of your little one's reach. At this age they will be trying to stick anything and everything into their little mouth's. If you have your little one on your bed make sure to keep an eye on them because they move quick. Your little one will probably pull on things and try climbing. Pretty soon your little one will be walking!!

How to bathe your baby when they are little

Materials
- Sink
- Wash cloths
for body
for hair
- baby shampoo (preferably Johnson's Baby)
- baby wash (preferably Johnson's Baby)
- bath towel
- long cloth to wrap baby



When your little one is little the best way is to undress them but just leave their diaper on. Hold baby in a football position supporting neck and start watering their hair if they have hair and put shampoo on. Massage shampoo into hair. Take washcloth for hair and dip it into the water and start using it to rinse out hair. Than unwrap baby and remove diaper and place baby in sink or tub, making sure to support baby. Soap baby with body wash using hands, making sure to clean private areas front to back. Than use the washcloth for body and start rinsing off the soap. Use towel to dry off your little one and put on lotion or baby powder..(I choose not to use baby powder because it has talc which may lead to cancer if inhaled). Place diaper under baby's bottom and fasten sides together. Than put clothes on baby. I found this technique off of a video on youtube.

Great tips! When my kids were infants I always completely undressed them while I bathed them.
