Just a week or so after David and Audrey were born, I found out that I was the recipient of a 4Moms infant bath tub from The Wise Baby! How amazing! This tub is so neat: you let the water flow into the shallow basin, where it takes the temperature to tell you if it is too cold (shows as blue), too hot (shows as red), or just right (shows as green). Goldilocks would be proud! The water then flows into a deeper basin to use as clean water and then into the basin where you put the baby. You can keep one basin with always-clean, always-the-right-temperature water for rinsing.
Well, we recently gave Audrey and David their first bath, and overall, it went rather well! We were worried about how David would react, as he hates to be cold (seriously, his screams would even melt the Grinch’s heart). So, I armed myself with extra washcloths to keep over his body to keep him warm. Yes, there were a few tears, but they did really well!
Audrey was up first:
Once Audrey was dry and dressed, it was David’s turn.
All in all, not too bad for our first time bathing two babies at once. We are still getting the hang of it, but it is working well. The towel aprons that I made worked well, and we loved having an additional dry towel for a final dry-off. Thanks Uncle Kevin and Aunt Lauryn for those adorable towels!
