  • I think I gave my daughter a submerged bath at the next bath after it fell off. I don't bathe her everyday, usually about twice a week, so it was probably a couple of days later.

  • As soon as you want. I believe I did it that night or the next day with all of mine.

  • You can give her a bath the day it falls off if you want. At least that's what I've always read. As soon as it's off, you're good. :)
