nope its not a silly question ...good to ask coz i dont even know how to hold my newborn correctly , last time hahahahha...
yeah in a baby bathtub with lukewarm water, put 2-3 drops of baby bath, holding his neck slowly lower him into the water, keep his head up ... sometimes they will fuss due to sudden exposure to water but its fine...wash his finger, palms, legs, between baby fats folds, neck areas...etc etc...coz babies are so chubby they have lots of "folds" trapped with dust...hahahahhaa but its cute . then use a wet towel to clean his head and hair....after that carry him up will do. Pat dry and dress him up so that he wont catch cold.
ermmm...if yrs is a gal then change all to She and Her...hahahha...have fun bathing.
orrh: i use kodomo on my boy until when he was 2year old i changed to pigeon.
