how often are babies supposed to get a bath? my son is 7 weeks old, and i've been giving him a bath once or twice a week, is that enough or does he need one more often? he really seems to enjoy bathtime, but its a little bit of a hassle for me, he squirms alot. i'd really apprecieate some advise on this.
I give my baby a bath every other day, or every day.
Even though it is a hassle it is special bonding with your baby and if he likes it even better!
It also helps put the baby to sleep.
If you give the baby a bath every night at the same time it will help mellow them down and get into routine.
having a bath every day makes my sons skin dry and his scalp starts to flake. So if he needs one, he gets one. If i just feel like letting him get wet because he likes it, we just give him a "bath" without the batheing. he sits in his tub and I pour warm water over him and rub him down w/ nothing but love! then he gets dried off and lotioned up and he's calm and smells great-without the flake!
