Bath water temp

My DH and I are going to bath our little boy today, his cord stub fell off yesterday, and is getting circumsized tomorrow, so we are taking today to give him a good bath. At what temp should the water be in the baby tub? I have a ducky that has a "hot" thing on the bottom that turns color when the water is to hot, but I don't know if that will help me. I don't want him to be to cold... or to hot. Thanks ")

I always have a hard time judging, I am always cold and I like my bath HOT. I bought a little floating thermometer (can find them in the baby section) .

you could use either your wrist or your elboe to see how hot/cold the water is.  If you're comfortable, then the baby will be too.  Have fun!
