The first few weeks of your baby’s life you may not want to rush into bath time. It’s perfectly ok to give him sponge baths. As long as his face, hands and genital area are clean, there really is no rush. Bathing your baby for the first time can be intimidating but doing so in a relaxed and safe environment will make it enjoyable for both of you.
New parents have a fierce instinct to protect their new bundle of joy. We know it is not possible to shield your baby from every germ, but sterilization of all bottlefeeding equipment is one way you can protect them from bacteria, viruses and even parasitic infections.
