Bath time is a special time for both you and your baby.
Handling a wet, soapy baby takes practice and you might feel a bit nervous at first. But with practice, you’ll find bathing your baby is a wonderful bonding experience.
For some babies, a bath before feedings is relaxing since most babies fall asleep shortly after eating. If your baby is not a good feeder, it may be better to wait and bathe him between feedings when he wakes up.
It's not necessary to bathe your baby daily. But you'll want to keep his diaper area and skin folds clean, and clean his hair and scalp every day. For the first week or two you'll probably give your baby sponge baths. Once his umbilical cord falls off and the navel (belly button) and circumcised penis are healed, you can start giving your newborn tub baths.
