Confession: We didn’t give Cora her first bath until she was 2 weeks + 2 days old. Granted, we gave her two quick sponge baths while her cord was still attached, but apparently we were in no hurry to bathe her once it fell off. Oops. I finally told Mark one night that our kid was stinky and we bathed her the next morning. She never fussed until I started drying her off, and then she passed out for four hours. haha
P.S. In lieu of a typical baby bath, we registered for the Blooming Baby bath and holy smokes, that thing is awesome. Cora just kind of curled up and got comfy in it and we never had to worry about bonking her head or having to hold her upright. We tossed it in the dryer afterward and it hangs in our bathroom between baths. Two thumbs up!
