  • You are joking right?!?! Newborns/toddlers. Can not bath themselves? They help maybe over 2 years old.

  • Sponge baths ended when the umbilical stump fell off.

    As for daily bathing......I don't remember when that started.

  • Every day maybe a few weeks. Or when needed. I used a baby bath until they could sit up. Then I used the ring around 6 months.

  • Louis2, I've been re reading my question and I'm trying to figure out why You think I'm asking if my child can bathe herself, that was no where in my question. Obviously they cannot bathe themselves, I still bathe my 5 year old! I was asking because I couldnt remember that far back! Calm down, my word!

  • I bathed mine every day in the kitchen sink at first because since I had C sections it was just easier. I started in the bath as soon as I was allowed which was when the cord fell off. It may be different today but that was what I was told.

  • We did sponge baths until the umbilical stump fell off. Then she got a bath daily...sometimes more than once. I had a projectile vomitter who has reflux.
