Your baby's skin is very delicate and cleaning your baby's face properly is very important. As a new parent, you must be careful around their eyes and ears, and if you're not sure how to wash your baby's face, here are a few tips to follow:

1 Soak a cotton ball in warm water and squeeze off the majority of the liquid.

2 Wipe your baby's eyes gently from the inside corner to the outside corner.

5 Wipe your baby's face gently with this. You should only apply soap if your doctor has advised you to do so.

Here are precautions to take when cleaning your babies face

1 Check the temperature of the wet cotton balls and clothes to ensure they are not too hot for your infant. You may do this by putting your hand in the water and feeling the warmth on the inside of your wrist.

2 Avoid rubbing or scrubbing your baby's skin too hard, as it is extremely sensitive and easily harmed or irritated.

3 Although it is ideal not to use soap when cleaning your baby's face regularly, soap may be necessary if your infant develops baby acne.
