James got his first bath when he was 1 week old...I washed his face every day but that was all...I wanted him to soak in as much vernix as possible. So when he was 7 days old he finally got his first bath. Elsie was so excited to help bathe him! We have discovered that James loves his bath...loves it to the point of falling asleep in the tub every time he has a bath! Sometimes when Elsie is having a bath we put James in the tub with her...I just lay him on my arm and let him relax...Elsie loves sharing her bath with James...until he pees than it is a different story!
