For the first week or so it's best to give your infant sponge baths with a warm, damp washcloth. Wash his face and hands frequently, and thoroughly clean his genital area after each diaper change.
You can start giving your newborn a tub bath every few days after the umbilical cord stump dries up and falls off, and the area heals. You should use the kitchen sink or a small plastic baby tub filled with warm water, not a standard tub.
When you do bath your newborn, you may find it a little scary at first. Handling a wiggling, wet, and soapy little creature takes practice and confidence, so stay calm and maintain a good grip on her.
Since bathing your baby too often can dry out his/her skin, so you don't have to bath your baby more than three times a week during the first year.
Some babies find the warm water very soothing. If this is the case with your baby, it's fine to let her linger. Others cry through the whole bath – that's when you'll want to get her in and out. Baths don't need to take up a lot of time: Five minutes is long enough to get your baby clean before the water cools down too much.
