how often do i need to give my girls a bath

I used to give my daughter a bath every day, but her skin and hair began to get really dry. So now she gets a bath every few days and her hair washed a couple of times a week. Her bottom gets cleaned in the shower once a day, since she's not yet potty-trained, and even the "gentle" baby wipes are hard on her skin.
Anyway, it just depends. If your children don't have any skin problems with bathing every day, and they like the baths, then it probably won't hurt anything.
But if the daily bathing is inconvenient for you, then you can give their diaper area a quick cleaning once a day, and a good bath a two or three times a week, or whenever they're truly dirty or stinky.

my apr 07 lovely has at least 1 bath a day now and she loves the routine and will asked you when she thinks its time for her bath, she's not fully pottytrained so her pull-up is soiled in the morning, she'll then have a quick shower with me in the mornings .

my April 07 baby gets a bath almost every night. He loves bath time! my 17 month old joins him. I gave them a bath every 3rd or 4th day at 3 months old. I never used soap on them since it dries out the skin. now I wash them with a milk hemp soap every day and shampoo their hair every otherday.
