You would need to wait til your baby's umbilical cord fall off. Sponge bath is the best for the newborns,make sure you wash around the belly button area to ensure that its dry.

After umblicial cord falls off, you can put your baby in a baby tub and wash their tiny body.


sponge bath is best, wipe your child with a warm damp cloth .

If your going to give your child their first bath and they still have their umbilical cord then make sure you don't get it wet or submerge it under water. It's best to wait until the cord has fallen off then gently wipe around the belly button area.
