Advice on Baby Bathing
Until recently it was quite normal for a baby to be bathed after they were born and then every day after that. But did you know that advice has changed in the UK?
Putting off a baby’s first bath can help establish and preserve your baby’s skin microbiome. As registered midwife Cathy Tabner @my_expertmidwife explains, it’s now recommended that babies are not bathed more than 2-3 times a week. Topping and tailing is fine though to keep their neck and face and nappy region clean.
