just want to know how many times do baby need to bath per day? i bathe my dear son(8 weeks) 3 times, in the morning 9am,3pm(weather too hot) and 9pm...
My baby now 6weeks old but i only bath him once in the morning, then evening i only use towel to wipe his body. Wanted to bring him to bath another time but scared he will catch a cold after so many bath in 1day.
yes yes yes ...... for me i bath my dear son one time & one time wipe him when near to sleep time ..... if think weather too hot maybe can wipe two time instead of one time ....
my 1st - 4th week only bath my boy once in the morning then wipe him in the evening. This is to prevent him fm catching a cold. 5th week onwards I bathed him twice, in the morning & evening, only give him a warm wipe through just before his bedtime. but sometime also depend on the weather, if like now some HOT, at time I give him bath 3 - 4 time during the day but still I won't give him bedtime bath in in order to prevent him catching a cold.

For young babies bathing too often will strip off their natural body oils which protect the skin.
When my son was less than a year old we bath him once in the morning, after lunch will wipe him (cos afternoon very hot also), then evening time wipe him before he sleep.
Now he is 2yo, he runs around and sweats like no one's business. Morning when wake up bathe once, after lunch bathe another time, when come home fm school (before dinner) bathe again. he gets sweaty very easily!
once in the morning and wipe him once in the evening.. i was told not to bathe him too many times per day, dont know why also... and partly i think becos baby dont really sweat so no point bathing him so many times =)
we bath the baby once in the morning and will wet wipe the baby around 8pm to change into nite clothes.
i bathe my baby once in the morning and wipe his body once before bedtime and change him into new sets of clothes. the lactation nurse at Kandang Kerbau Hospital also thought us this way.
whn my dear daughter was 8weeks old, i bath her 2 times a day, and try to dress her in light clothes ..
if you are worried about skin drying, maybe one of the baths can omit away the soap?
now my dear daughter is a sweaty 14months old, we bath her 3 times a day too..
i bathe my girl at least 2 times a day since she was born. except for the first 2 weeks, whereby we did confinement at my aunt's place, and her house is very windy in the night. hence, only wipe for her.
