Wife says every week, but i think it should be more frequently December 27, 2016 at 1:58 am #506 SamirMember Newborns don’t really get that dirty (as long as you keep their bums clean, and wipe any spit-up quickly). We bathed both our newborns sons once a week for the first couple of months. Any more than that tended to dry out their skin. After two months, we bathed them twice a week. Congratulations on your son! Author Posts Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
