Scroll down to register for a recording of this webinar
Bathing a baby can be a highly stressful experience for the baby, the parents and/ or the person performing the task.
Developmental care strategies encourage containment as a method to promote stability and reduce stress for the neonate. There is a lack of consensus in the neonatal literature concerning the type of bath, water temperature, and the length of the bath.
Swaddled bathing is a method that is widely accepted as a means to reducing the stress when an infant needs to be bathed. Join us and learn how to make bath time a TLB time.
Our Learning Objectives:
- Describe the procedure for a swaddled bath
- Compare the length of time need to perform the swaddled bath to a traditional tub bath
- Identify the proper water temperature for swaddle bathing
