What to wash with? Sheep Wool? Microfiber? Cotton?

I am about to take my 1 week old baby to take a bath. I don't want to screw it up the first time. What do you guys recommend to use for washing? I plan to use microfiber to dry it afterward. Thanks.

A lot of people recommend the Chenille Cotton wash mitt, but I regret using it. The white cotton particles flake off, especially when wet, and they get caught in the lining around the sunroof. If you use it, just be careful of that area.

I recommend a Microfiber Wash Mitt for washing; be sure to rinse frequently in a second bucket to remove dirt particles... I also use the ABSORBER to dry the car; it works great.

I am currently using the BMW car shampoo on my E90 until I order the Zaino Kit.

I used real sheep skin wash mitten...they are great, soft and does not causes swirl marks. But the real sheep skin does not last that long, it fall apart but I don't care. I got them for $6 at wal-mart. Because it so cheap, maybe it not real sheep skin (I don't care, it works for me).
