Hi Guys,

the baby I’m about to adopt has some hair. The previous owner said she never bathes her, but I’m not sure if that’s the right thing to do.
Does anyone have the same issue?
Should I bathe her? Or just use wipes on the hairless areas?

thank you so much

Many that are hairier do not need bathing or might need a lot less than really bald babies. I always waited a couple of weeks before bathing to build up trust etc...you will get a good feel if you need to bathe or not. Ears will most likely need routine cleaning. BTW...congrats!!!!!

I didn’t bathe my girl nearly as much once she grew some fluff. Maybe once a month.
