I used to do it once a week, then twice.
Now I increased it to three times.

How about you??

About twice a week. Now that it's warming up it will be at least every other day. But I wash her hands and face more often

I've bathed my baby every day since she was a few weeks old. She loves her bath and knows it's part of her routine. Now, she's 15 months and every night after dinner, knows that it's time for a bath and then bed :-)

I WAS only bathing my daughter every three days, but now that she's started solids I bathe her every day because she gets food basically everywhere. Her ears, her nose, her neck... everywhere.

My son is three months old. We usually bathe him every other day in the evenings. Then we massage him with lotion so he doesn't dry out since we live in colder climate (Alaska).

I was told by the Pediatrician not to bathe too often. So I don't. I will when:
1) When he stops smelling like a baby
2) Blow out worthy of a bath
3) He smells like sour milk
Eventually we will make this a daily thing but where we live, the water is hard and drying.

I bathe my 4-month old daughter every third day, 3 days a week sounds good to me. Sometimes I bathe her more when she has a big poop blow out, or maybe less if it's been an especially challenging or busy week.

My son is 4 1/2 months old, and he has been getting daily baths since he was about 7 weeks old. It is part of our relaxation routine in the evening. There have, of course, been evenings where we skipped the bath occasionally. But this happens rarely

We usually bathe every 2-3 days unless we have a huge diaper blowout or a spitup marathon!

The every other day rule is what my doctors told me too...and you are right, with visitors and playdates and colds, it really helps keep off the germs and keep them relaxed. Sometimes I just start the bath if she is really fussy during her teething...it always calms her! She is 7 months old now

we take a bath every day! It's just part of the routine : ) In the winter I try to wait every other day to make sure she is not drying out too much. But she LOVES her bath time and we just play for about 10-15 minutes a day. Who knows if that will happen with my next one....this is my first, so we have time : )
