It’s up to you how often you give your baby a bath. Some babies love being in the water and giving your baby a warm bath can become a fun and relaxing routine.

It’s not important to give your baby a bath every day. If your baby is newborn, a bath two or three times a week is enough to keep him clean.

Please keep in mind that if you live in a hard water area, too much tap water may dry out and damage your baby’s skin.

Between baths:

Apart from giving your baby a bath, do:

. wash your baby’s face regularly

. clean your baby’s genitals and bottom with specially formulated baby wipes or with cotton wool dipped in water after each nappy change

. wipe any dirt off his skin
