Bathing the newborns

Newborns don’t really get dirty since they sleep most of the time. A bath, two to three times a week is enough. You also need to regularly clean the folds of your baby’s neck and thighs with a damp cloth to remove any residue milk or poo.
A bath in warm water tends to relax your baby and help him get ready to sleep. Instead of a morning bath, you can also give your little one a bath as part of his bedtime routine.
Some doctors recommend a sponge bath till the time your baby’s umbilical stump falls off. Others say, it’s fine to start with a tub bath as soon as you are home from the hospital. If you do give your baby a tub bath, make sure you don’t put any oil on your baby’s stump and dry it well after.
