Giving your baby your full undistracted attention is key to bathroom safety. Remember, if you have to leave the room for any reason, you take your baby with you. The point can’t be stressed enough—whether you use a baby bathtub or bath seat, do not ever leave your child in the bathroom unsupervised.
This means you must bring all the necessary items, such as towels, clothes, diapers, lotions, etc. to the bathroom before you place your baby in the tub. Otherwise you will be taking a wet baby with you to go grab that missing item. It is always much safer to do bath time with your babies if you have older kids or your partner available, just in case something is needed last minute then they can grab it for you. A note on older children, please have them grab the missing items and not supervise the baby.
Another useful tip that is easy to do before your baby is even brought home is to get in the habit of storing small appliances, such as hair dryers and radios, away from the water and bathing areas. Keep these appliances unplugged and out of reach when not in use.
