Tap water that's too hot can quickly cause burns serious enough to require a hospital visit or even surgery. Once the umbilical area is healed, you can try placing your baby directly in the water. You can loosen the scales with a soft-bristled brush while shampooing in the bathtub, but it's also okay to leave it alone if it doesn't bother you. Only give your newborn sponge baths until the stump of the umbilical cord falls off, which usually happens by about eight weeks of age. Turn on more accessible mode. Lay baby on a flat surface that is comfortable for both of you —a changing table, bed, floor, or counter next to the sink will do. The American Academy of Pediatrics AAP recommends that the hottest temperature at the faucet should be no more than degrees Fahrenheit to help avoid burns.
