Re: How often to wash a baby?

Most frequent would be once a week...but it's more like once every other week. She gets her hands and face washed with every meal and snack (usually just a damp washcloth, no soap), and her bottom with every diaper change. But other than that, she's not dirty or smelly so there's no need. Excessive bathing just leads to skin problems. We all bathe too much, actually, and it's the root of many of our skin and hair problems.
