  • 1-2 times a week. Don't forget to use baby lotion, baths can dry out their skin.

  • Not that often. I think like 1-2 time a week. They don't get dirty or all that sweaty yet. Just be careful not to get the cord wet if it hasn't fallen off yet.

    My kids are now 4 and 7, I've forgotten some things about newborns.

  • I have a 7 week old and i give her baths every 3 days, so her skin does not dry out. :)

  • Usually not every day, but every other day or even every 2-3 days.

    My little one spits up a lot, so she starts to smell like spit up and I give her a bath or just put her in the shower with me.
