I would even just use a warm damp washcloth.

Yes. You can warm them in warm water.

Careful with using wipes as a bath type thing. They can dry out the skin as some have alcohol in them.just use a soft warm washcloth with a bit of baby soap.

I'd just use a damp rag. Baby wipes can dry out their skin a bit.

I rarely gave my newborns real baths. I usually just got a warm wash cloth and wiped them down. They don't really get that dirty and bathing them too often can dry out their skin.
