bathe my daughter every night as a routine with the johnsons bedtime bath and now she has trouble sleeping if she doesnt hav a bath before bed. SHe loves it to kick around and it leaves her skin so incredibly soft.

We bathe our son every other night. Sometimes more if hes dirty since hes more mobile and a messy eater=)

I bathe my little girl just about every night before bed (although we only "wash" her every other day so her skin doesn't dry up or get irritated). This sets up a good bed-time routine. She knows that after bath is bottle and bedtime. Sometimes I bathe with her, but that is only if she's having a bath in the middle of the day (she can be a sweaty napper, so sometime a mid-day bath is needed). I'm hoping she knows the difference between a day-time bath and bed-time bath.

Everynight before bed. She's not in the bath with me as I don't have time to have a bath everyday and plus, she can't really sit up properly yet, so when she's a bit bigger I'll have a bath with her.

I bathe my son every night as part of a scheduled routine. He eats dinner about 5:45-6PM, we go straight to the bath (usually by himself in his little tub) and then I put his pajamas on and he plays for a little bit before heading to bed around 6:30-7PM. I rock my lil man and feed him a small bottle and he goes right to sleep - and sleeps the whole night!

I was bathing our son every other day or when he was really dirty, however now i bathe him almost every day. He falls asleep so much easier when he's clean. I take him into the shower with him unless i'm in a hurry than bathe him by himself. He takes a bath with his older brother who is 4 once in awhile.

lulu usually gets a bath 2-3 times a week and we usually co-bathe. every now and again we won't.

My daughter takes a bath maybe 2 or 3 times a week. It depends on how dirty she gets. Sometimes she gets a bath everyday!! She does take a bath with me sometimes, but she enjoys her bathtime alone too & plays and splashes!

I used to bathe my son every other night, but now we try to get in a bath every night. Now that he's getting around more & getting solid food all over himself, I thought it would be good. And he loves bath time, too! I have taken a bath with him a few times, but mainly I still bathe him in his little tub.

i bath my sons twice a week or when needed. My older son is 2 and they bathe together in the tub. It's funny. my 7-month-old splashes my 2-year-old and gets him all frustrated. But they play good together in the bath.

my son has a 2 baths a day, one in morning and one at night. He loves the bath, it is his favourite thing. Also i dont know if its true or not but apparently children who have a couple of baths a day sleep better.

I tend to bath Kai every 2 -3 days or when needed, we top n tail in between. He loves to have a play wih no clothes on so i do that and wash him, then when he bath's we dont have so much playtime, but longer in the bath. We bath together once a week, have a nice full bath and he can have a proper splash about.

I bath my son every day, usually with his brother and sister, but when time is a crunch then I just put him in teh shower with me, he loves the water!

We give our son a bath when he is dirty, if i bathe him too much his skin gets dry even though i lotion him up. So we usually bathe him every other day. I usually get in the bath with him so he can splash around or we put him in the shower with daddy. He also likes the kitchen sink.

Well, I only bathed him when my son was dirty, couldnt sleep, or just felt like it. However, here lately I've been doing them almost every day just for fun. My doctor said that becuase he has eczema that I should use special soaps and all that often so a bath helps. BUT it doesnt help the eczema. Actually I think it's supposed to make it worse. I do definitely take baths with him ALL the time though. I love it. It's mommy and me time where I dont have to carry him everywhere. We sit skin to skin and sometimes I put him in his Baby Bumbo so he can sit while I wash off. He loves bubble baths and all that. Him and his dad take them too. Personally I rather a bath then a shower (very hard to handle a slippery 6 month old.)
