Maki’s bath time has never been complicated. I was hesitant at first, I was afraid that she might slip out of my hands and get hurt. I was afraid that I might drown her or apply soap on her eyes, even if it’s a no-tear baby soap. I was just assisting my wife with giving pretty Maki a bath never dared to do it my self. But I knew that a day will come that I have to do it.
I prepared her clothes, towel, liquid soap and her tub. She enjoyed getting wet with warm water touching her soft skin. She lover how I washed her hair and get tickled when I applied soap on her neck. Getting her dresses was also not a problem. I don’t apply any time of lotion on her skin because I believe that baby skin does not need to be tampered with anything unnatural. I don’t use baby powder as advised by a pediatrician and relatives.
After the bath – a long peaceful sleep. I now enjoy given her bath as much as she enjoys bathing.
