How often should you wash a baby’s face?

When can I wash my baby’s face with soap?

How do I wash my baby’s face everyday?

Should I wash my toddler’s face with soap?
Try not to use soap, because soap can dry out your toddler’s skin. If needed, use a gentle non-soap cleanser. Use the cleanser at the end of the bath so your toddler doesn’t sit in it for too long. If your toddler has dry skin, it’s better to give them shorter, lukewarm baths.
