How hot should baby's bath water be?


I think we've been doing ours too cold...
How hot should it feel?
We've got a thermometer but its a bit crap, to be honest. Should it be tepid or warm or wwhat?
Thanks.

put your elbow in it and it should feel neither hot nor cold

"They" say it's not supposed to be over 100 degrees, but my LO like it's a bit hotter than that.

I always did amelies warm but not hot. she cried a lot when she was bathed as a newborn but we discovered she was cold and added some more hot water and she enjoyed them a lot more.

We got the Avent thermometer - it's a room & bath in one and has the correct temp on the display - for bath water says it should be 37 which I find nice and warm (I have very hot showers though) and my lo seems happy in and she's definitely not pink when she comes out so not too hot for her.

I use a bath thermometer and have it about 37 but usually end up adding a bit more cold because I think it's too warm for him lol elbow works perfecly as well!

I tend to have it a little warmer, but we use the big bath and I hop in with him, I just make sure it's not too hot that I have to do the "ouch ouch ouch" dance when I get in...but still warm enough that it doesn't go cold too quick, cause Dylan loves it and stays in there for over 20 mins.
