How NOT to bathe the baby (baby's first bath)

A public awareness reminder that things that happen behind the scenes, out of our sight, aren't always as rosy as we might think them to be. Perhaps its a restaurant cook who accidentally drops your burger on the floor before placing it on the bun and serving it to you.

Here it's an overworked apathetic (pathetic) nurse giving a newborn her first bath. Please comment and rate this video, so as to insure that it is viewed as widely as possible, perhaps to prevent other such abuse.

This is why a new mom or dad should never let the newborn out of their sight!!! Always accompany your infant if necessary.

Who is videoing this? The parent? Why aren't they stopping it?

Great question! The mother posted the video, but I can only assume that it was Dad or her partner that caught the footage.

embaressed to say that I recognize the language and the bottle of soap which means that it is done in my home country. However, I can assure you that this is not normal there which is a remider to us that this can happen anywhere. being close to your newborn, trusting your instincts and advocating for your baby is the right thing to do.

How could she handle a baby so roughly? Seems to be no regard for the fact that this little person has come into the world from a lovely soft, warm and comforting environment. And what does she think she's doing washing off that lovely protective layer of vernix anyway? I didn't wash my babies for a couple of days for that reason. It made me sick to see her scrubbing it off with all of those chemicals.
