Q.

bathing baby

I' ve heard that bathing a 4 month baby twice a day can lead to loss of essentials oils and leads to dryness of skin. Is this true or is once a day bath fine till he gets a little bigger?

You should not bath your baby more than once a day as you will indeed wash off the natural oils which protect his/her skin.
