How often should I bathe my baby?

He's about four weeks now and I'm wondering how often should I bathe him? I gave him baths and am wondering how to space them out.

  • My doctor said too many baths can overdry his skin. He says to bath babies that aren't yet crawling 2 to 3 times a week. Once they start crawling, you can bath them every other day or every day if they are getting dirty or sweaty.

  • Every 3 days or once a week if you are wiping him down every day or every other day.

  • We've bathed our little girl every day since day 1. It's just part of our bedtime routine.

  • At 4 weeks old, a few times per week is sufficient. I didn't start giving my daughter daily baths until she was 3 months old.
