Dad Climbs Into Tub With Newborn In Adorable Viral Video

Baby's first bath is equal parts frightening and nerve-wracking, momentous and heart-melting. The newborn sponge bath can be a challenge while proving simultaneously sweet.
Many newborns despise being exposed to the elements and end up a wee bit chilly during bath time. But once they are wrapped up in the hooded towel smelling fresh and deliciously baby-like, they settle down and become little cuddlebugs.
One dad decided to give his sweet baby boy a bath. Some dads hesitate to give their wee ones baths, especially with the notion that those firstborns should be blanketed in bubblewrap.
But this dad did so fantastically during bath time in keeping his baby entertained and protected that Mom had to record their interaction. Dad didn't hesitate to hop right in the tub with his son instead of placing him in a baby bathtub.
They are so cute together! The tub is half full with deliciously warm water and the baby is au naturel, cradled in dad's big hands.
"I'm trying to keep you awake a little bit."
Apparently someone doesn't like sleeping through the night, so Mom and Dad decided to try a nice warm, relaxing bath before bedtime that will keep him somewhat awake for a period of time, then allow him to drift off to sleep after he's bundled up his jammies. Dad and the little boy carry on the sweetest conversation that mom captured for all of us to enjoy.
He asked his baby boy if he was hungry, since he seemed to be rooting. Then Dad teased him about pooping in the tub while he's in there with him, warning him that there will be consequences if he does.
"Any bubbles and I swear, you're grounded. Not one bubble."
The baby just gazes up at Dad, familiar with the voice that cares for him but unable to focus on his face at such a young age. Dad gently plays with his foot and caresses his chin while they chill out in the bathtub.
After another pep talk about sleeping through the night, the little baby boy emits the cutest sneeze and dad adorably mimics him. They're so delightful together and we can tell that they will have a wonderful bond as he grows older!
"Hopefully you'll sleep a little bit better tonight."
