I bathe my son 2-3 times a week. I see no real reason to bathe him more often that that. He is 11 months old, and he crawls around like mad, but if I bathe him tonight, he won't be any less dirty tomorrow. Obviously there are times (like after a spaghetti meal) where he needs bathed no matter his last bath, but I am just trying to conserve water and cut down on my carbon foot print.

since the age of 6months (muckiness of food being the main reason) i've been bathing my son every night at 5 and get him in his pjs.
he then watches the bedtime hour of cbeebies and his has milk then its bed at 7.
i dont see no reason why you shouldn't bath them all the time if they enjoy it .. just as long as you smother them in baby lotion!!

Just be mindful of what soaps/lotions you are using... baby's skin is much more permeable than an adults, so their body absorbs anything you put on them. It is surprising how many toxic chemicals are in products that are specially made for babies... even for national brands such as Johnson & Johnsons. You might want to try organic products if you are going to bathe him every night.
