I am a new hedgehog owner living in the UK. Does anyone have any recommendations for bath products which are easily accessible to buy? I have heard that aveeno baby wash works well, and oatmeal wrapped in a cheese cloth which is then left in the water.
Also, how often do you usually wash your hedgehog?
I was just after a second opinion really as I do not know anyone else who has a hedgehog

The ones you listed, Aveeno Baby Wash (unscented/fragrance free with oatmeal) and oatmeal wrapped in cheese cloth, are definitely my top picks and are good recommendations. I also like to drizzle a little oil (usually olive or sweet almond) on my hedgehogs after they've mostly dried, so they can retain some moisture and help any dry skin.
I give them foot baths when they need them, which is pretty often, and I try to not give them full baths unless they really need it - i.e., anointing with something that smells horrible or being lazy and sleeping under the pee pad all day. Full baths really dry them out, so I try to keep it around once a month at most.
