  • regardless we always have bathtime every evening.. but if he gets hot and sweaty during the day i wipe him off with wet wipes and put some powder on him.. it helps with the sweating and keeps him cool.. also get the sunblock that you can spray on that way you're not coating him with a thick lotion that needs to be washed off, and the new 'smooth and dry' bug spray (i think its made by off) I love it.. they are not sticky, wont be hot on them, and can be easily wiped off with a wetwipe during the day until bath time

  • My baby (7 months) gets baths every day since she was about 2 months, and it doesn't bother her skin. I only use lotion about every other day, I did the same with my oldest. In my experience, if I skipped bathing my oldest --THEN she would have problems. She was kind of a chunk though and had tons of rolls!
