Adding bath to a bedtime routine. Research has proven that warm baths have proven to promote good sleep!
Blood rises to the skin's surface while we soak in warm water, a process known as
vasodilation. Our blood vessels are still open when we come out of the bath, which
causes a slight dip in core body temperature. This tepid temperature reduction aids in preparing our bodies for sleep. Therefore, bathing can aid with a baby’s sleep.
Little ones can unwind and rest after a long day with a bath. Many infants enjoy the
warmth of the water. Some people believe that this serves as a reassuring memory for them of what it was like to be an unborn child. A bath may also be a good approach for parents to soothe a fussy infant.
Since baths help to do this as well, it is always worth a try to incorporate this into part of your little one’s bedtime routine!
