Its not neccissary to bath them.
But I'd be taking him out now, its easier and much better while they are younger to form bonds.

You need to be confident and not juttery or scared as they will pick up on it and then will spike up more.
It will hurt, just slid your hands each side under his belly and pick him up.
You can use a fleece blanket to help protect ur hands.
