  • When their umbilical thing falls off their belly button or if they are circumsized that needs to fall off too...About 2 weeks. Until then give them sponge baths.

  • i would wait to put him in a bath until after the cord has fallen off, it needs to be kept dry. but you can give them a sponge bath anytime.
