A bath two to three times a week is enough to keep a newborn baby clean, as long as adequate cleansing is done during diaper changes and after feedings. However, if your baby really enjoys a bath, you can bathe him or her once a day. Bathing more often than this may dry out your baby’s skin.

A bath 2-3 times a week is enough to keep your newborn clean. But if your baby really likes baths, you can bath him once a day. Bathing more than this can dry out your baby's skin.


U can bath in the morning and wipe down at night. 4 weeks old has min. Activities. Too much bathing will wash away their body natural oil.

Usually once in the morning around 8plus and evening around 5plus. If evenings are cold, will wipe down instead of bath.

Twice a day late morning and late afternoon / early evening when there's still some warmth 8n the air
