  • Jett is 14 weeks and I sometimes wash his hands. With my first son I started washing his when he started feeding himself, I would just hold him up to the sink with my knee...

  • My son has sensitive skin so I baby wiped him down for the most part outside of his baths but he started to wash his hands regularly when he started going potty regularly just before he turned 2. I learned to pack our own soap for outings bc his hands and wrist became so irritated when he first started washing them when we were in public. If he made a big mess I would just rinse his hands off or wipe him off with a baby washcloth.

  • I wash hands when they start crawling or get into something that would require it.
