Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

How often do you bath a newborn?

You can bathe your newborn everyday if you wanted to. It's good to get your baby on a schedule and get them used to the bath. You need to be very careful not to get the umbilical corn stump wet and after it falls off you shouldn't bathe your baby for a couple days. Also, you don't need to wash their hair everyday, a few times a week will be just fine. And I read that washing their private areas should only be with warm water.
