Answer: Hello, follow your doctor's advice do not use any kind of oil to your baby as the baby skin are very sensitive and they could have rashes .However, unless her skin is dry due to atopic eczema, she won't need a bath every day. Her skin can absorb and lose moisture more quickly, making it prone to dryness. When your baby was still in your womb, her skin was protected by a waxy substance called vernix. After it's wiped off baby skin gets dry ask your pediatrician for a good moisturizer which you can use on your baby. hope this helps.
