How often should I bath my newborn baby?

Bathing Newborns

Do not give your newborn a bath until her umbilical cord has fallen off and the scab has healed (usually about two weeks).

After that, daily baths are not required, but also will not be harmful. Two or three times a week is enough, but if you and your baby enjoy the ritual, it is a great time for bonding, and feel free to indulge.
