Unhappy okay for bath?

So, I got Arnold about a week ago, and he's been doing great! He let me play with him the day i got him, he wheels every night, he eats the new food that I already changed from he's previous food (which was no good) and he lets me pick him up without any problem. So my question is, do you think I could give him a bath already since he's quilling?

I've never done the baby/quilling thing but I'm sure you're okay to go, since he's comfy and it's been a week.

Most suggest an oatmeal bath..put oatmeal - as in your breakfast oatmeal - in a sock and swoosh it around the water and bath/rinse him with that.

Others with more experience will chime in....

Mostly wanted to say Hi to you and Arnold!

You can also pop a capsule of flaxseed oil open and squirt it in the rinse water, then rinse him with that. This will help with the itching caused by quilling.

From what I've read flaxseed is better because it rinses off more easily and it allows the skin to "breath" more.
