Precious little girl whew thank God they didn't put the swan in her ear that would be dangerous

Aaron Schumacher says:

Bath time should not be fun! It doesn't need to be horrible but it needs to be to the point and no toys.
Lets study why.
Many babies as they learn to crawl go around the house and sneak away. Many parents have found their babies in the bathroom. They sometimes want to try and get in the tub because parents have put so many toys there that they think its a fun place when in fact its a deadly place. Just like you teach children that the tub is hot and dangerous and tell them to stay away. The tub and bathroom area should also be a hot dangerous area. Babies drown in toilets as well.
So, bath time should be to the point and done. NO TOYS NEEDED.

Aaron Schumacher says:

I leave my baby alone all the time but my 5-month old knows how to swim just fine. I paid thousands and put him through ISR training.
Why do people suggest only 1-2 baths per week? Think about this, babies sit in their poop every day. If you sat in your poop every day would 2 showers a week cut it?

North Star says:

When do you give the baby first bath? How many days after birth?

Isadora Barros says:

Actually you don't need to bathe a newborn baby everyday. If you bathe a newborn baby too much the chances of getting allergies and astmha later in life increases.
