Questions about family bathrooms
What is the ideal bath temperature for kids?
The safest bath temperature for children is between 37˚C and 38˚C, or 36˚C for newborns. Since children’s skin is much more sensitive than adults’, you should test the water first to see if your skin turns red. If so, it’s too hot. For baths with separate hot and cold taps, mix the water before letting your child get in to ensure the heat is evenly distributed. You can also use a thermometer to get the temperature right or install anti-scald devices on hot taps.
When can children start showering?
While there’s no golden rule and every child is different; most children can start using a shower around age six to seven. They may need assistance switching the shower on and off, but they should be able to wash themselves unassisted.
