A List Of Basic Baby Bath Essentials

Who doesn’t find a chubby cheek baby laughing and splashing in a bath full of bubbles too cute for words.

When it comes to bathing your baby you only need a handful of baby bath items.

Herewith is a list of basic baby bath essentials I use for my daughter.

Ps. A couple of months ago my daughter had a few eczema patches on her face and I was recommended by her pediatrition to use specific products. It worked perfectly for her and her eczema went away.  I am still using the products.
