In brief: Sure.

Just use a mild soap, and don't leave him/her in for too long.

In brief: Depends

Depends what you bathe him with, how hot the water is and how long the bath is.
The longer the bath, the more you strip the natural oils from skin. If he is an active kid and he is sweaty, not bathing him may be worse.
