Sponge bath

A 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. Baby skin is getting use to not being in the womb so giving to many baths will dry their skin out.
