06 Jun How often should you give your baby a bath?

It is really up to you on how often you would like to give your baby a bath. Bathing him once or twice a week is fine during the first couple of months. It really depends on your preference. Some parents like to give their baby a daily bath to ensure a consistent bed time routine. It is also fine to give your baby a bath before his umbilical cord stump has fallen off and healed. Just make sure you allow it to dry off properly afterwards. Regardless of how many times a week you opt to give your baby a bath, ensure it is a relaxed environment to soothe your baby and get them ready for feeding and then sleep.
