Bath Toys And Caring Tips

Both you and your kid adore bath toys. Your kid loves it because theyíre fun to play with and they make him forget that taking a bath is sometimes scary. You love it because it keeps your baby occupied while you get done with your thorough baby bathing duty.

Because bath toys have inevitably become an important part of your babyís bath routine, it is just reasonable that you take good care of his bath toys.

First tip: Clean the bath toys regularly. Even though bath toys gets to have a bath too when your kid does, it doesnít mean they shouldnít get their own time slot for cleaning. Oftentimes, when your kid takes a bath and plays with his bath toy, there are soap residues left in the bath toy that you may not be able to rinse out because of course, itís your baby whoís needless to say is the star of the show and whom youíre focused on.

So after your babyís done with his bath, donít forget to wash the bath toys with water thoroughly to rinse out any soap residue. Clean water-retaining toys at least once a week with a mixture of one part chlorine bleach to fifteen parts of water. Be sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid bacteria build-up that can cause infections.

Second tip: Air dry the bath toys or dry them under the sun. Especially those that are made of cloth should never be left lying around all wet and cold. Not only would they acquire an unpleasant smell, the dampness may cause for it to accumulate mildew and bacteria which you certainly donít want to reside in any of your kidís toys.

Third tip: Disapprove any untoward behavior towards the toy. Frown on activities that involve chewing, banging or throwing around the toy. Even though your baby may be too young to understand the value of his possessions like his toys, itís not too early to begin to discipline him.

When he starts to bang his toy or try to bite the head off his Octopus Bath Puppet, what you can do is to gently take the toy away and then firmly say, ďNo, donít harm your toy.Ē If he cries, donít just give the toy right away and let him do it again. Repeat taking away the toy and saying the same thing until he gets that you mean what you say. If you see that he treats the toy differently, be generous with praises and hugs and kisses to reinforce the proper behaviour.

Fourth tip: Alternate different bath toys so that they would not be easily worn out. If you give your kid the same bath toy over and over, not only would he be bored with it eventually but it will also fray the toy more easily.

Fifth tip: Store the bath toys properly. Donít leave them lying around where your dog can bite on them or your babyís older siblings can go get them. Store them in a mesh bag or a dry container.

Taking care of your babyís bath toys is important to ensure that they stay in top shape and enjoy more baths with your little one.
