How to Clean a Baby's Ears and Nose

  • Dip a clean, soft baby washcloth or cotton ball into warm water and squeeze it to remove any excess water (Since baby skin is very sensitive, avoid using soap on the face).
  • Use a soft, damp washcloth or baby wipes to remove mucus around your baby's nose, wiping gently around each nostril.
  • Use a washcloth to wipe the outer part of your baby's ears, but not inside. Check behind each ear, and wipe away any dirt or debris.
