Cultivate bathing fun
When bathing your baby, you should interact with him or call his name. Don't bath him mechanically as if it were a task. The mother can sing to the baby, play with the baby, or use water to tease the baby during bathing.
Develop bathing habit
Form the habit of bathing. Act to make your baby realize that bathing is a rule that cannot be changed casually. At the same time, the bathing time should also be fixed as much as possible. Take the baby to take a bath when it comes to the fixed time. In the long run, the baby can develop the habit of taking a bath.
Give your baby a sense of security

In addition, some small changes also can effectively increase the baby's sense of security, for example, use a smaller bathtub, or start with a little bath water, put a bath mat on the bottom of the bathtub, these can make your baby feel more secure.
Create a relaxing, pleasant atmosphere
In addition to the concern of the baby’s hygiene, bathing can also serve as a chance for parent-child interaction.
Mommy can play some soothing music for the baby while taking a bath, touch the baby, play with the baby, sing with the baby, and put some small toys in the bathtub...to create a pleasant atmosphere during bathing and let the baby give up the resistance to bath.
Respect baby's sense of independence
