  • My doctor says every third day so you don't dry out that beautiful baby skin...she says that you wipe the "important" dirty parts 100 times a day, so for now, over bathing is not necessary. I kind of feel like, if we stayed in all day, why bath, if we went out to a germy place, it's time for a bath!

  • I do every other day and take a warm wash cloth the other until he can really get going and get messy. There of course times when he makes a mess and needs like 3 baths in 1 day! I usually take everything one day at a time LOL :)

  • my baby is 6 months old, right now I give her a bath every 2-3 days. I will start giving her a bath more often when she is getting around more and when the weather is hot.
