advice & tips from leading baby experts
for perfect bathtimes, swim and sleep with your babies and little ones
We are parents ourselves here at Cuddledry - and we know how daunting it can feel when you are first expected to bath your brand new baby. Such a precious, tiny person - and so much to think about... water temperature, remembering all the bits you need, holding them safely, and then getting them into a towel (well, we can help with that bit!!).
So we thought it would be helpful to share some lovely guidance videos to give you some tips, and make it all a bit easier and more fun. But although we are parents - we aren't experts - so we have worked with some of the very best baby care experts in the UK to bring these videos to you. We hope you like them. And we hope they help a bit. Let us know how you get on.
