Q.

bathing

Hi professor,

Strange question but i used to bath my 18 month old every night until 2 weeks ago my mom in law suggested i dont bath her when it is so cold as she has always been chesty. if she gets a cold it goes to her chest...she is on a 12 hour pump (seretol...? I tried it very hesittantly, but she is actually better...seems to have less of a runny nose.
Is it bad to bath a tot every third night when it is so cold? I do wash the nappy area etc.

You can continue to bath your little girl as you have been doing. It certainly will not do her any harm.
