I’ll tell you the truth: I can’t stand bathtime. It’s just not fun to kneel on bathroom tile, contort my back to get to those hard-to-reach places, and use my cat-like reflexes to prevent a series of potential injuries (my boys like to stand and jump in the bathtub – a genius idea, I know). However, I subject myself to it time after time so that my kids will be happy and, you know, clean.

Ask Nurit: Bathtime Safety

Dear Nurit,

Bath time at my house is fun, noisy and hectic. All three of my young children ages 4-7 love getting wet and wild! Now that they’re older they no longer need to sit in an infant tub but I know there are still potential bathtime precautions that I should take to keep them safe and happy. What kinds of things can I do to make sure bath time is fun and ouch-free?

You’re absolutely right. While your children are no longer infants, there are steps that need to be taken to ensure everyone has a good, clean fun. Here are a few tips:

1. Have a bathmat inside of the tub and a soft bath rug with a non-slip base next to the tub to prevent slips.
2. Cover the spout with a sponge or specially designed soft cover to prevent accidents that occur from bumping in to them.
3. Keep all adult hygiene supplies out of reach and sight. This includes razors, curling irons, hair dryers, and anything else that could be a potential hazard.
4. To prevent scalding, set your hot water thermostat to between 100-125 degree Fahrenheit.
5. The water temperature in the bath should be between 90-100 degrees. Use a thermometer.
6. Never leave a child unattended in a bath.
7. Come to bathtime  prepared for serious fun! Have the toys ready, bring your cell phone, and make sure the stove is off so your full attention can be right there with your little swimmers.  And never leave a child unattended in the bath.
