  • Every other day is fine, unless of course there's an out of control diaper incident or something.

  • I did every other day & warm wipe-downs in between. Poopy heiney is always cleaned gently under a warm faucet with baby soap & Desitin is applied.

  • I worried about baths when my daughter was a baby because she was in a body brace for a congenitally dislocated hip. I wasn't supposed to take the brace on and off more than I absolutely had to. Speaking to my concerns, my pediatrician said that as long as I was thorough with sponge baths and especially keeping the diaper area clean, the baby would be just fine. He said bathing a young baby every day wasn't good for the skin anyway. Once the brace came off, I started doing baths a few times a week, and washing the diaper area every day.

  • I bathed my kids every 2-3 days unless they needed it sooner. They now take one every other day.

  • mine only got baths once a week b/c they had very dry skin and lotion didnt help. i also didnt take them out much so they stayed fairly clean. it really depends on your baby.
