He's four months old now. At around 2 months, we'd lay him in his little bath tub and splash him with water. We only used soap once every three or four days, and he seemed to enjoy this as part of his night time routine.
Two or so weeks ago, he started developing a rash on his tummy and arms. I brought him to the doctor, who said it was a reaction from the soap and that we should only be bathing him once a week, and don't really need to use soap unless needed. He prescribed a cream for his rash/dry skin. But now my Joel-bear is confused by the change in routine and has had a harder time falling asleep.
So, much like the title implies, how often should I bath him? So I continue with the nightly "water play-time", or keep trying to cut it out? How often are you bathing your little one?
