There is so much more to newborns’ first baths than hygiene: baths ease babies’ transition from their intra-uterine life to the outside world. The bath is calming, stimulating and multisensory all at once. The ways in which we handle newborns shapes the bath experience. With responsive handling, daily baths can be a positive introduction to movement in water. The shared pleasure of the bath (baby bath or shared home bath) enhances early weeks and months for parents and babies together.
We will be sharing course resources here closer to the beginning of the training.
