New research shows that baby baths are good for your heart and brain, and that the bath is worth the money
Posted March 04, 2020 17:11:25Baby baths have been around for decades.
They’re popular with parents who want to soak their baby’s hair and skin before they go into the bath, as well as parents who are concerned about their children’s mental health, especially during the early stages of their development.
Bathwater researchers have looked at more than 20 studies on bath time, including research from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the European Organization for Scientific Research.
The research found that bath time had positive effects on the heart and lungs.
Researchers found that babies who spend about 10 minutes in the bath are more likely to be healthier than those who only spend five minutes.
A baby’s brain is also better developed in the early years of life, when the brain is not fully developed, the researchers wrote in their study.
And because of the lack of oxygen in the womb, babies in the study experienced fewer brain cells than babies who had been in the same environment for just two days.
“This suggests that the body’s response to stress is the result of the mother’s body’s ability to provide a greater amount of oxygen and a more stable environment, which in turn helps the brain develop and mature,” the study’s authors wrote.
In the meantime, it may be worth spending money on a bath if you want to stay healthy and your baby’s development is better, the authors wrote in the report.
However, they cautioned that it’s important to avoid taking baths that are just for the sake of it.
It may be wise to make sure that the baby’s mother is doing a good job of cleaning the bath before the baby starts.
