If bathing on a changing table, use the safety strap as well.
Test to make sure it's not too warm
Lay baby on the prepared blanket or mat.
Only use a little moisturizing soap, and only if baby is smelly or dirty.
Also clean between fingers and toes.
Ensure baby is dry before putting on fresh diaper and clothing.
