Bath time fun!

You can chat to your baby while you’re doing other important things, like washing or getting dressed.

Bath time is a good time to chat and play because your baby is often relaxed, and you have their attention.

You can make them happy just by copying their actions or sounds.

Talk about what you're doing while you're doing it. For example, when it's time to wash their face say: 'Time to wash your face'.

If they have a bath with a toy, you can do the action to the toy. For example: 'Time to wash ducky's face!'

You can also mime the action. See if your baby copies you or makes noises.

Good to know

The more fun you have together, the more your baby will learn.
