  • Not often really. I would bathe mine every evening as part of our routine.

  • My Pediatrician told me not to bathe them every night, because it would easily dry out their skin. He told me to bathe them every other night unless you had a very messy day.

  • Every day should be fine. Just use a good non-drying lotion like aveeno

  • Oh I did wipe them down with a wipe during their nightly diaper change before bed. That way any residue from milk or saliva would be washed off.

  • There's no right answer, but I bathed my DS about 2 times a week when he was that age. He got a sponge bath if it was really hot or he had spitup. It wasn't like he was getting dirty or rolling around at that age.

  • every other day should be just fine, wash baby's hair less often if cradle cap becomes an issue :)
