When you clean your baby's body, use a mild moisturizing soap-free product. Be diligent around creases under the arms, behind the ears, around the neck and in the diaper area. Also wash between your baby's fingers and toes. To keep your baby warm, expose only the parts you're washing. Avoid getting water and soap into the eyes (they cause irritation), nose, and ears (water can be stuck in the ear and lead to infection). Once you've finished, dry softly by dabbing.
Note that babies don't need to be bathed daily. Every other day is best (otherwise their skin will dry up).
