Here at BEAUTYCOS.co.uk we have lots of products that are specially developed for children. The big question many ask is how often should my child take a bath?
There is no exact rule for how often your child should take a bath, and the recommendations are different depending on the child's age.
Baby to nursery children
You should not bathe your completely newborn baby, as babies in the first days have a layer of fetal fat that the baby's skin must absorb. It typically takes 2-5 days. When the baby is no longer protected by fetal fat, it is appropriate to take a bath once or twice a week. If you find it necessary, you can easily bathe your child several times.
As the child gets a little older, it often becomes necessary to have a little more, because the child plays or eats himself, and thus can get dirty. Here it is recommended two to three times a week.
When bathing your child, it is important that you use products that are especially suitable for children. You can often make do with water for the very young children, but children, like adults, have different skin types. Therefore, your child may need a little bath oil or soap in the water, while others may do without both and settle for water. If your child has a lot of hair at an early age, wash it with a little shampoo once in a while.
Kindergarten age to school children
In kindergarten and school age, you can easily continue to bathe your child two to three times a week, perhaps more if you find it necessary because the child has become extra dirty or the like. In kindergarten, most children have enough hair that it should be washed with shampoo every time they are in the shower. In addition, the child should begin to learn to wash himself, and it is important to guide the child in washing the whole body, from head to toe. Especially behind the ears, under the arms, navel, buttocks, legs and toes are important. They should also learn to maintain hygiene after toilet visits and before and after meals, by washing hands.
Only in puberty does it start to be recommended to bathe daily, and emphasize to the young that it is important to wash the whole body thoroughly.
