  • my dd starting getting nightly baths at about 8 weeks because it's part of her bedtime routine. I just don't wash her hair every night to help keep her from getting cradle cap.

  • We bathed my daughter twice a week until she was 7 months old. At 7 months she got a cranial band and now has to have her hair washed every day.

  • I never immersion bathed. just sponge bahed as needed with a plain scent free dye free casille or oatmeal soap. no creams, loions, oils, powder or shampoo. bad for the skin.
