Baby's First Bath!

2:05 PM Posted by CalgaryDaddy


It sure looked a lot easier in the hospital when the nurse did it!  Mr. Mon-Ky had his first bath at home yesterday  ( They said twice a week, so we were cutting it close.  Does this make us bad parents, lol?)   and it was pretty uneventful.  He cried in the hospital when he had his first bath but this time, the cries were actually low key. 

 He seemed to like getting his big body washed.  It was definitely a two person job to hold his 10lb frame while cleaning him, all the while trying to avoid getting the umbilical cord wet. ( Which fell off this afternoon!)   I cannot wait until he is old enough to play with his awesome bath toys that his "Guncles" Pete and PJ got him.  I can already hear me singing him the 1980's classic Sesame Street  "Rubber Ducky" song by Ernie! 

 We were lucky enough to get the bath on tape, which should make for some great wedding video embarrassment in the future!  Also, his hair went straight into his odd spike/faux-hawk thing once it dried.  Look at him in the pic below, he looks pretty content after his bath! What's with the half smirk?  What does he know but doesn't want to share? Hmmmmm....





I just hope that the baby soap does not wipe off that sweet new baby smell of Kyron's.  Did I tell you how much I love him yet?

Feel free to share your funny bath stories, so I know what to expect!

    I love the post bath baby hair! So fuzzy! The first time we bathed our oldest he peed all over my husband! It was so funny. Now we sometimes put all 3 boys in the tub at once...and no one pees on us!
    P.S. I think Kyron looks like you.

    Aww, he is SO CUTE!!! He looks like you in the second picture. Just adorable, enjoy this stage, it is precious! And giving my son - both my children actually - their first bath was SO HARD!! I didn't get used to it until they were a few months old, to be honest!

    If you get Fiesta Songs you can even learn to Rubber Duckie in Spanish. :)

    Simply adorable! Don't worry about cutting it close with the twice a week bath. Most of us aren't perfect with that either. It's not like he's crawling in the dirt yet. Lol! More fun bath times to come. :)

    He looks just like you in that 2nd picture!!! As for bath time fun...be careful as you pull him out - I've been peed on twice!! I guess it was the change from warm water to cool air...whatever it was - it was only funny after I got to shower and change. Hahahaha!!!

    He is just too adorable! I'm so happy that things are going well and that you are enjoying him so much! Savor this time while he's so little...it goes SO fast!

    As for bath stories...I've been peed on more than once while trying to bathe the little guy.

    Oh how sweet is he??? I'm jealous of that faux mohawk, LOL, my son Hunter is 6 months old and STILL has nowhere near that much hair. Ha ha!

    Glad to hear all is going well with the new one. My 6 yr old baths by himself and my wife baths the 2 yr old so I don't do baths to much anymore but they were fun.

    So adorable! My little one's first bath was a nightmare. She was only 6 lbs - those little ones are pretty slippery! Sounds like your experience went much better than mine!
    Looks like you guys are having a great time!

    Eek, I remember the first few baths. Holding a newborn was hard enough for me, add in some water and slippery soap and it was enough to drive me crazy!
