Baño de esponja

Un baño de esponja es la mejor manera de limpiar al bebé hasta que el cordón umbilical se desprenda. Para hacerlo, se recomienda sumergir un pedazo de tela suave en agua tibia y escurrir el exceso. Si es necesario, se puede usar un jabón suave con el agua. Se debe limpiar la piel del bebé suavemente comenzando desde el área de la cabeza y luego bajando para limpiar el resto del cuerpo. Se debe prestar atención especial a los pliegues cutáneos y el área del pañal. Finalmente, se debe enjuagar al bebé con agua tibia limpia y secarlo completamente.
