Previous Next 3 of 11 Getting into the creases

When you're ready to clean the rest of your baby's body, stick with plain water. If your baby is smelly or dirty, use a mild moisturizing soap. Pay special attention to creases under the arms, behind the ears, around the neck and in the diaper area. Also wash between your baby's fingers and toes. To keep your baby warm, expose only the parts you're washing.
