Hi all,

I was just wondering how often everyone baths or bathed their 5 week old?

Once we started bathing we did it every night as part of the bedtime routine.

First bath was at 3 weeks then bathed once or twice a week until 4 months ish. Now it's every other night

At 5 weeks just took them in bath with Dh or I maybe once a week. Washed bum and face daily a few times with warm wate rand facecloth

Once a week

About twice a week until 6 weeks or so, when we started bathing her every night as part of her bedtime routine

I did it every night as part of a bedtime routine.
2/3 night they would be on their own in a baby bath & the others they would be in with me smile

Weekly, its never been part of the bedtime routine as they have dry skin.

Twice a week

DD has always been once or twice a week, with face, hands and bum wash daily using flannels - she's 7months.

Once or twice a week at that age. Once my son started weaning we upped it to every second night (sometimes more often) as he gets much dirtier now.

I did it every day pretty much until 2 months but then her eczema came through Andy now we do it twice a week. She is 6 months old. U don't think the need it that much when newborns
