Is it all right for a newborn baby of 4 days to be given a normal bath? I read that only sponge bath should be given to the baby till the umbilical cord comes off and is completely healed.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
In this cold winter, it would be preferable to give a sponge bath with lukewarm water, cleaning all areas of the body. One has to be careful that the baby is not exposed to cold. Keep the baby warm. Breastfeed the baby as it gives the mother's warmth also.
