First Bath!

Due to the alarming amount of cheese Raylan was trying to grow in his neck fat, as soon as that umbilical cord stump (nub? piece? bit? cling on?—>lol, cling on) fell off, it was time for a REAL bath!  He had mixed feelings about it…

Pre-bath...I think he knows what's coming...

All clean!

All clean!

Cheese be gone!

Cheese be gone!

 

Things I noted:

-the second you have scrubbed all the nooks and crannies, he will pee all over himself, so keep an extra rag over his manly bits to mitigate this risk

-we have a heater in the bathroom, so we kicked that on – that, combined with the warm water, made for a happy-ish baby after the initial deluge

-NEWBORNS ARE SLIPPERY BOOGERS WHEN WET, PROCEED WITH CAUTION

-follow up with a baby massage with lotion, a meal, and some snuggles to get a couple hours of sleep out of your almost 2 week old

All in all, it was a success!
