  • I've heard it is better because daily bathing could dry the baby's skin more. As long as you wash and rinse the diaper area then I don't see a problem with it. And especially if your bathroom is cold. It isn't bad for her.

  • I think it's fine, we live in Colorado and there is no humidity where we are, I don't bath my kids daily because it drys out their skin way too much. Usually every other day or even every three days depending on what they have been doing etc.. If they have been playing hard and have gotten sweaty then a bath, but if not we usually just stick to face washing, hands etc..
