“My husband and I decided to not bathe our son because of the health benefits”, Mother is being criticized after she said that she is not planning on washing her baby for 1 month because she claims it’s healthier for him


The young mother is being criticized after she shared on her social media account that she is not planning on washing her baby for 1 month because she claims it is healthier for him. The mom said she has not bathed her son since his birth on May 6 – and that she has no plans to anytime soon. The baby boy is reportedly covered in the fluid that he was born and his mother says that she is not going to wash it off because it reportedly gives a protective barrier to the baby and is an antimicrobial. The mother also claims that soap can dry out babies’ delicate and fragile skin. Many of her followers criticized her decision to not clean off her baby, while others agreed and said that they did the same thing with their kids.

The 24-year-old mom from Washington, Shahnta Hoare, told New York Post that she recently gave birth to her fourth child. But, the young woman is receiving a lot of criticism online after she shared with her followers that she has not bathed her newborn son since his birth on May 6 – and that she has no plans to anytime soon. The newborn baby, Ozzy, is reportedly covered in the fluid that he was born. The young mother says that she and her husband Tyler are not going to wash it off because it reportedly gives a protective barrier to the baby and is an antimicrobial. The mother from Washington also claims that soap can dry out babies’ delicate and fragile skin. 

During an interview with the New York Post, the woman reportedly said: “My husband and I decided to not bathe our son because of the health benefits. It helps newborns regulate their body temperature with skin to skin, it gives a protective barrier and is an antimicrobial as well.”

The 24-year-old mom shared her ‘plans’ on her social media account.

Hoare explained in the video that she and her husband Tyler ‘don’t give baths for, like, the first month.’ She also said that her baby son didn’t get wiped off of anything. What you see in that video stayed on him until it naturally came off, the young mom told her followers. 

Shahnta Hoare reportedly said in the video: Vernix is actually really good to keep on their skin, it’s super, super moisturizing. It’s almost a little oily. He had it in his neck creases, in his ears, fingers, toes, it’s the best. I know it is maybe gross to some but when it’s your own baby, you’re like, this stuff is so good. So yeah, he didn’t get wiped and he won’t get his first bath for many more weeks.”

Unfortunately, many of her followers criticized her decision to not clean off her baby and they took to the comment section to share their opinion, the Daily Mail reports.

One person reportedly wrote: “I couldn’t imagine anything worse.”

“Why? Like, how is this OK for a newborn?” another person said.

Third person wrote: “I’m sorry but this is the first time I’ve ever heard of this, and I don’t mean to judge but no. I feel like this wouldn’t work for me.”

“OMG. What y’all got against being clean?” another person commented.

Some even agreed with the mother-of-four and said that they did the same thing with their kids.

“We did the same with both our kids. That’s how you create good gut health from infancy.” one person wrote. 

Another individual reportedly said: “Yes I wish more mothers did this. That is the best moisturizer ever. I even put it on my hands and face.”

“It doesn’t naturally come off, it absorbs. It’s the best thing for their skin,. I didn’t bathe my fifth [kid] for a month too.” third person wrote.

The 24-year-old mother reportedly posted a a follow up video, in which she explained that newborn babies really aren’t dirty, they don’t get dirty. 

Shahnta Hoare reportedly said in the video:Their bums and stuff, you can clean, but there’s no reason to use soap. In fact, it’s really not recommended to use soap on those areas. Of course, with a chunky baby, you’re going to get stuff – spit up – in their rolls, some babies spit up a lot more than others. But you can just take a damp rag and clean it up. Their skin is really fragile and delicate and it can get dried out really easy. That’s why we choose not to use soap.

Please remember, what you want to do with your baby is totally fine, I do not judge you. If you want to wipe off your baby and give them a bath before you even touch them, that is your choice. If you don’t want to bathe your baby for the first two months, that’s also your choice.”
