In the beginning, all your newborn needs are a sponge bath with a warm, damp washcloth. Wait for the umbilical cord to fall off, which is usually ten to 14 days after birth, before giving your baby his first tub bath.

When your baby is ready to get in the tub, it's okay to just use water. If you use soap, choose a mild soap made for babies so that it doesn't irritate their skin.

Remember that bathing two or three times a week may be sufficient (especially if your baby doesn't like baths). Babies don't sweat like adults or get dirty like toddlers, so regular baths are less of a necessity.

On the other hand, if your baby finds his bath relaxing, you may want to add one to the bath as part of your sleep routine.

How often should you bathe your baby?

In many families, the bathroom becomes the focal point of the night's sleep routine. But in terms of cleanliness, bathing more than a few times a week isn't necessary until your baby is crawling and messing around. Wash the face frequently, clean the skin folds and clean the genital area thoroughly after each diaper change.

How to give your baby a bath?

Here's how to do it and what you need to make baby bathing easy. Fortunately, bath time will be one of the most enjoyable moments of the days you will spend together:

1. Gather all necessary toiletries and pack a towel, clean diaper and clothes. Make sure the room is comfortably warm so your baby doesn't get cold.

2. Fill the tub with about 3 inches of water that is warm but not hot to the inside of your wrist - about 32 degrees Celsius or a few degrees warmer.

3. Bring your baby to the bath area and undress completely.

4. Slowly tuck your baby into the tub feet first to support their neck and head with one hand. Regularly pour a glass of bath water over him so that he does not get cold during the bath.

5. Use mild soap sparingly (too much will dry out your baby's skin). Wash it by hand or with a cloth from top to bottom, front and back. Start by washing the scalp with a wet, soapy cloth. Rinse the soap off the cloth and use it to gently clean your eyes and face. If dry mucus has accumulated in the corner of your baby's nostrils or eyes, wipe it several times with a small damp cloth to soften it before wiping. When it comes to your baby's genitals, all it takes is a routine wash.

6. Rinse your baby thoroughly with a glass of clean water and wipe with a clean cloth.

7. Wrap your baby in a hooded towel and pat dry. If her skin is dry or has some rashes, you may want to apply a light lotion after bathing.
