90. Hints for Bathing the Baby



It is a great advantage when bathing the
baby to have all the towels heated before using, as they absorb the

moisture much more readily and are very pleasant and soothing to the

delicate skin. This is also excellent for bathing an invalid as it greatly

hastens the work and lessens the danger of catching cold. It acts like a

charm for the child who dreads a bath, this is usually a nervous child who

does not like the feeling of the towel, on the wet surface of its skin;

complains of feeling damp; and refuses to don its clothing when a less

sensitive child would be perfectly comfortable.
