    We were going to bathe him today to celebrate his week old anniversary, but the bathroom was too cold, then MIL had to leave, and no way are we doing the first bath on our own. It will have to be tomorrow.

    I bathed Jack every other day until he was 8 weeks old and then started doing it every day so he got used to it being part of his bedtime routine. He does miss the odd bath if we're out though :) x

    At your LOs age we were only bathing Oz every 3 or 4 days. Top n tailing him in between. I can't remember when he went to baths every day, probably coming up on a month old or just over.

    I can't remember now lol, I do remember you're not supposed to clean their eyes for a while? God, my son is only 1 and I can't remember lol

    I didn't bath mine until he was 1 week, just wiped him with cotton wool and water when he needed it then we bathed him once a week until he was 4 weeks then we did 3 baths a week then at 6 weeks onwards we did everynight as part of bedtime, but mine had dry peely skin then he got a rash so we were careful with baths, we've only recently started putting bubble bath in.
    Each baby is different so trust ur instincts for ur baby and bath him how u feel is right x

    Thats strange, my MW with this LO & oldest said that a bath every day is best as it cleans all the folds of skin that you might miss with top & tailing Plus bathing is alot quicker.

    Helps keep the routine too.
