  • depending on baby's age and what they've eaten that day then 1,2, or 3 times a week should be fine.
    babies don't get very dirty and as long as you clean the hot spots(face, hands and bottom) then a few times a week is fine.

  • my son is 6mos and gets a bath every night as part of his bedtime routine....he's pretty much always gotten a bath every night....

    I know some women worry about drying skin out and such, which is totally understandable...but my son has great skin...always gets compliments on how soft it is and such---I put a squirt of babyoil in his baths each night---works wonders!
