How often should you bathe a newborn?
I asked this question a ton, and got 500 different answers. But the one I got I trusted. My pediatrician and long time family doctor says "They don't really get dirty, hunny". Bathing twice weekly is sufficient until they learn how to get dirty. However, every day you should spot clean. Take a warm wet washcloth and clean their face and neck (it does get dirty from formula leakage), clean their diaper area (you know why that gets dirty), and clean their hands (some newborns suck on their hands- therefore covering them in formula as well).

Answer . Anywhere from like 5 times a day to once a week in my experience with 4 kids :) . ANSWER. It varies from baby to baby. Some newborns have a bowel movement after… every feeding (especially breastfed babies), some newborns go every other day or every few days. As long as your baby doesn't seem to be constipated (bloated belly, crying, straining, etc.) then there is no need for concern. Best of luck!
an adult should bathe everything he or she feels dirty or stinks
really only a 3 times a week unless they get really messy other than that just get a washcloth and wipe them off that's what I was told when I had my son
It depends on the baby, and how much they like baths. It doesn't really matter if you bathe them one a week, or once a day. As long as you keep your baby clean. So, when it ea…ts, if it makes a mess, be sure to clean it up, baby wipes are good for this. Also, if you have a really bad diaper you need to be sure to clean up after it. If you baby had rolls on it's legs, you want to clean them out to make sure it's clean. You don't want your baby to dirty because it can hurt it's skin. But, don't over clean it, be gentle. =]
Depends on the breed and if ever in doubt, ask your vet. As from my experience with short hair and medium hair breeds, you should give them a bath whenever they need it, ie th…ey have pooped/urinated in their crate, or some other must-clean need. Then you should consider once a month bath for the first 3 to 4 months. This ensures that they understand what a bath is and they are not fearful of it when they are larger and harder to control. Always use a puppy shampoo and never get the water or soap in their ears or eyes. I never let their heads get wet. In fact, if you don't already have an attachment that you can use in the shower/tub, then get one. It will be great tool when the pup is full grown. If their head ever needs cleaning, just use a washcloth (and I use baby shampoo since it is even gentle for little babies.) Once they are at 4 months. Only bathe every couple of months or when they need it. I have boxers, which are super short hair, and when they need it, I give them a bathe, otherwise, I wipe them down w/ a cloth and put a little freshening spray on.
if the weather is hot,you should take bath at least twice a day..if it is in cold weather,just take once a day if u can hold the coldness..
I bathe my horse only about every two months, sometimes changing this depending on the season and how filthy he gets. If you over do the bathing it causes the horse's skin to …harden... At the very most I'd only do once a month, not even that in fall and winter.
\nDaily is better for good hygiene. Otherwise alternate days are fine too.
once a day is usually enough. I always bathed my babies every day, even when newborn. Bathing them daily helps to prevent diaper rash, and by gently washing their scalp with …a soft cloth while in the tub may help prevent cradle cap, which is an oily, scaly condition that is quite common in newborns. Just be sure to have the water and room at a comfortable temperature, and be very careful to rinse all the soap off. Use soaps made especially for babies to help prevent skin irritation, since regular soaps can be too harsh for a baby.. Bath time can be a pleasurable time for both you and your baby, and something to look forward to as a good bonding time. It also helps some babies sleep better afterwards because it can relax them, just as it does adults. Just be sure to never leave a baby unattended in the bath, even if there is only an inch or two of water. Gather all towels, soaps, diapers, baby clothes, etc. before you begin so you won't have to leave the baby alone even for a few seconds.
doberman's have really short hair, so not often if they don't smellbad. but a rag mixed with warm water and some leave in conditionercan never hurt, even if once a day.
Never! In the wild, gerbil take sand baths, it keeps their fur clean and fluffy. But I would not recommend actually giving them a bath. Gerbils are not big fans of water, and …could easily drown. I you really want your gerbils to look nice though, buy them bath powder and put it in a container. It's adorable to watch them roll around in it! You could also brush them with an unused toothbrush.
every day or night
i have a male polecat i bath him twice a week. At first he really didn't like it but now he loves it, especially his towel dry. He acts just like a dog and rolls about in it. …He is a recued pet from the cat and dog home and is about a a year old so bathing him for the first time was scary but just keep trying reward him when your ferret has been good thay learn very quickly my polecat now follows me everywhere and loves his cuddles _________________________________________________ Twice a week???! Good lord. Ferrets are generally clean animals and don't need to be bathed more than once or twice a year. They are like cats and will groom themselves. Bathing too often dries out the skin and makes for an itchy ferret. It also causes the skin oil glands to overproduce oil, making the ferret smelly.
Children should use a warm wash cloth to wash their faces, privates, and visible dirt daily. Then, twice a week, they should take a bath and wash their hair. In the bath, they… should also wash their feet.
I currently have an almost 4 months cavapoo. I bathe her once every week. I have read many things about Cavapoo, but since Cavapoo breed is a designer dog, it is hard to find… much information besides couple websites. I read that depending on cavapoo's coat time, you can do once every week or once every two weeks.
