  • Babies don't need baths daily they are not playing in the dirt, hence they don't get that dirty in a day. Every other day is just fine they have sensitive skin.

  • Babies don't need to bathe every day...however, I used bath time as part of an evening routine from very early on (as soon as the belly button fell off). My little girl was sleeping 6 hours at night at 6 weeks and 8 hours by 2 mo. I think the routine helped her differentiate between daytime and nighttime. If your baby has sensitive skin though...you might not be able to.
