when we gave the baby her first real bath, not just wiping her down with a wash cloth her brother and sister just HAD to help.
I was so impressed with all three of them. The Baby was not nearly as fussy about it as her siblings were. Her only real complaint seemed to be that when she stopped nursing before we put her in the bath she was not really done and wanted to stop all this washing nonsense and get back to eating.
Her brother and sister took turns self directed with no arguing and were very gentle and carefully wiped her down with the wash cloth and spoke soothingly to her to help her be pacient so we could clean her before she finished eating.
