    Bathing during winter

    HI there

    Just a quick check with mommies

    Do u all still bathe your babies during winter at night? May seem a silly question, but right now, my baby's bedtime routine is bath, PJs, story and nursing. I'm from Singapore where it's sunny all year round (no winter) so i'm wondering can i still bathe my gal in the evening when it's freezing cold (even in HK's winter which is considered mild). Or should i just give her a wipe down? Thanks!

    Mine's was a winter bub. Has had a bath all through winter since he was born. He loves being in the steamy hot bath... Our home is heated though... both in Oz and HK.

    We bathed him in a really warm tub of water and had a little heater thing in our bathroom that we turned on--afterward, wrapped him up well in a towel and had a space heater nearby. He never once got sick this past winter even though it was the coldest for South China in 50 years or more! I'm from a place where it snows in the wintertime and since I grew up with it, I could probably take a cold shower and still be fine--your baby will do just great--he isn't used to warm Singapore so to him, HK is normal :)

    My baby was born in early March and it was still litte cold. I used to put a heater in the bedroom and after the bath wrap her in a towel quickly. I believe babies always sleep better after a warm bath :)

    we also run a space heater into the bathroom and they have a nice warm bath or shower.

    we take all the clothes etc into the bathroom so that they are in their pj's and robes before they come out of the bathroom.

    i would think that in cold weather a nice warm bath would be even more vital before bedtime! i know that most HK apartments like ours lack good insulation/heating so i am always freezing in the evenings and only a good hot shower can make me feel better and ready for bed. crawling under my cold covers without a hot shower was always unfathomable! i imagine babies would feel the same way...
