every 2 days, sometimes 3. i started doing this because she started getting cradle cap. now this cleared and shes developed a VERY dry scalp. i only wash her otherwise if she's had a bad "spill".

i bathe aymie every 2 nights, unless she passes out before bath time. but shes a good sleeper. she'll usually have her last bottle around 10, 1030 and sleeps until at least 9 the next morning. bath or no bath. i found that the johnsons bedtime bath is great especially when you use the matching lotion. nice calming smell, the lotion doesnt dry her out and she has bad cradel cap. i wash her hair with jonson head to toe and use the bed time bath for bubbles.

Every night as part of our night routine. If we dont give him one at night he doesnt sleep good. He loves his baths!

Orla is now 4 months & I have been bathing her every alternate night since she was around 4wks. Since 10wks I have been bathing her at 6pm, cuddle & storytime followed by bottle & in bed by 7.30pm, she will then be dreamfed at 11pm & will sleep through til 8am.

Daily. Ava is now 4 months old, and at the 4 week mark I tried to encouraged her to sleep through the night. Her bath started to become her evening routine. Bath at about 8p., bottle and then to bed. First night 10 hours! Although I was up checking her each hour! Now Ava's bedtime is some time between 6pm and 8pm, and she sleeps through until 5am.

I only bath my little one 1 or 2 times a week...I will wipe him down in between bath times with baby wipes and then reapply lotion and he will smell as fresh as if he were to have a bath.

We bathe Donnalyn everynight. She absolutly loves it! Ever since her belly button healed that has become our routine. Bath, massage, story time, and then a bottle. She sleeps so well (about 6 to 7 hours a night) We've only had a couple of nights in the last 3 months where we couldn't get her down good.

i bathe him every night about the same time to signal "sleepy time". i was using johnson's baby head to toe but he was getting dry skin and a little rash, so my cousin said her pediatritian recommended unscented dove so we tried and he rarely gets dry skin now.

My little one is 4 months old. He has a bath every evening. He LOVES bath time, especially when his daddy gives him his bath. They play a lot! His bath is part of our routine to get ready for bed. Bath, bottle, book, prayers, some rocking and he is off to bed.

I have a 3 month old and I only bathe her as needed. If you bathe too much the babies skin will dry out and could cause cadle cap. Its very uncomfortable for your little one!

Every night. It is part of our bedtime routine. We're TRYING to transition from the swing to the play pen to sleep at night, so setting a bedtime routine is very important to us.

Every other day and we only wash with water. We used to use Johnson's baby wash but she developed eczema and really dry skin so we are just sticking to oilatum in the bath and lots of creams right after. Also we're not scrubbing at her and keeping the water as cool as she'll allow to keep as many of her natural oils on her as possible.

She loves bathtime :o)

I was doing it every other day because her skin was getting too dry and inlue just washing under her neck, her face, hands, and diaper area, however, my doctor just gave me a script for special soap and lotion so we are back to every day!

About every day- every other day depending on how much she spit up that day or if she smells funky. LOL

Our daughter will be 4 months on Jan. 17. Since it can be hard to get a newborn on a routine we started her on a routine when she was 2 months old, we give her a bath every night, every other night though we wash her hair and her body, on the nights we don't wash her hair and body we just let her soak in her tub for a few mins and whipe her down with her baby wash rags. The warm water soothes her into a good sleep for the night time :)

Every night as a part of our ritual...he loves his baths, it calms him down and he knows as soon as I put on the lullaby music and run the tub...it's time for bed. it's great!

I only bathe my baby 2 times per week. I tried the every other day approach but her poor little skin got so dry!

Every 2 days - or sooner if he has a big mess (or if he is very unsettled a bath calms him)! We shower him also with us and have done since he was 2 weeks old he loves it and its easy! Cradle cap can be from over washing their hair, my son has never had any as I use an organic shampoo and only wash it a couple of times a week.
