How often do you bathe your 3 week old baby?

so far i have only given her 2 baths since shes been born, I clean all her little fat rolls everyday so no 'cheese' developes. Should I bathe her more often now that shes a little bit older?

  • When they got to be about a month old, I bathed them about twice a week.

  • Once or twice a week. Too often will dry out their skin.

  • For the first month or so... About once a week or as needed. And I usually just wipe them down in between...

  • I gave my son a bath every night. It was a night time way we had of getting ready for bed. He enjoyed it.
