5-Month-Old Baby (22 Weeks)

Helpful Tips for Parents of a 5-Month-Old Baby

Bathing a baby is fun for everyone involved, but sometimes too much of something isn't so good. You only need to bathe a baby a few times a week -- not even every other day in most cases.
 
Of course there are exceptions to every rule, but generally, bathing too much can dry out the sensitive skin of a baby. Especially during the winter months when everyone's skin is a little drier than usual, it is best to limit bath time to 2-3 times per week.
