Should You Bathe Your Baby Every Day?

Bathing your baby is an essential part of their daily care routine, but how often should you bathe them? It’s a common question that many new parents ask themselves, and the answer is not always straightforward.

According to our resident pediatrician, Dr. Faith Alcazaren, the answer to this question depends on the weather, the ambient temperature, and the age of the infant

If the weather is very warm and humid, a refreshing bath will calm your baby down. Remember to bathe your infants when the ambient temperature of the room is warm.  

On a cold, stormy day, however, it’s okay to skip the bath. You can just rinse the baby’s neck and bum. 

If your baby is a newborn, it’s okay to bathe every other day. This will help your baby keep a stable temperature. 

Older infants, on the other hand, can be bathed daily. Especially those who tend to soil themselves frequently when you start feeding solids. 

We hope you find this blog helpful to you in caring for your newborn. By keeping in mind the tips and considerations discussed by Dr. Alcazaren in this post, you can make an informed decision that works best for both you and your little one.
