It is not necessary to bathe a newborn baby every day. Three times a week may be enough until your child becomes more mobile. Bathing your baby too often can dry out their skin. If you change diapers and burp wipes quickly and thoroughly, you’re already cleaning the parts that need attention – your face, neck, and diaper area. Between baths, you can also check your baby’s skin folds, including the thighs, groin, armpits, and chin. If necessary, wipe these areas with a damp cloth. Is it better to bathe a child in the morning or in the evening?
It depends on you. Pick a time when you’re not in a hurry and you won’t be interrupted. Some parents choose to take morning baths when their children are awake. Others prefer to make baby baths part of their soothing bedtime ritual. If you bathe your baby after a feed, wait until his tummy has settled down a bit.
