How often do you bathe your little ones ?

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.

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.

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 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.

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.)
