A sponge bath is great to have for the baby before the baby photography shoot in so many ways. for starters, it will make the baby feel so much more comfortable and refreshed ensuring that he isn’t grumpy or anything like that at all during the photo shoot. Another thing that makes a sponge bath for the baby a really great idea is that it helps scrub off or slough off any dead skin that can make the baby’s skin come out looking rough and unsightly during the baby photography shoot. This is actually quite common among newborn babies who have just gone out in the world and who are growing through some sort of growth spurt during the first 10 days or so of life. A word to the wise, even though you are trying to rub off some dead skin, make sure that you do it gently. Don’t rub the baby up too hard. Don’t use any abrasives or anything like that. You have to do it gently in order for the baby’s skin to not end up getting irritated, red, or worse, have some breakages somewhere along the way.
Feed and make the baby burp.
Of course, feeding the baby is something that is mandatory and not something that you should end up forgetting as it is a basic need or a necessity so far. One thing that most parents forget about though is the need to make sure that any excess gases by making the baby burp. Rubbing the baby’s back gently will get that taken care of and will make sure that he doesn’t end up vomiting or worse all throughout the duration of the baby photography shoot when it all comes down to it. Remember this all the time and consider the fact that this is something that is quite crucial to the baby photography session so far so don’t forget about it at any point in time.
Babies aren’t actually used to complete and total silence all of the time, unlike what most people think. They are used to the constant busy sounds made in the womb from the pumping of your heart to the rest of your other internal bodily functions. This is the type of thing that they will really be able to get used to even if they have long been out of the womb so far. Play something lulling and gentle during the shoot and the baby should be in a far better mood in the end of it all.
Yikes! The messes!
Babies will always be babies and they are bound to make certain messes so far and this is something that you ought to prep for as much as you possibly can while you are at it. Have some baby wipes and some extra clothes and napkins that you can use readily in case something comes up. You will never really know and it is always so much better if you make sure that you come prepared all the time.
