I only bathe my 10 month old every 3 days, unless she gets really messy. I'm sure that I should more often though.

I bath my daughter every night as part of her bedtime rutien, after long days we skip the bath because she is just to tired, although we have only had to do that for family b'days and Christmas. I use a baby wash in the bath and moisturize her after every bath, she likes to get her massage too!

I bathe my 10 month old almost every night too, it helps him relax at night which makes him sleep better(when he does sleep).

i bathe her 2 times a week depending on how dirty she is. about the diaper rash. my daughter had rly bad diaper rash to the point it was breaking open and bleeding. i used 1/2 desitin cream and 1/2 maalox (told my her dr) and it went away but once it goes away u need to keep using it for a while. but it works awesome and goes away fast.

I give my little miss a bath every night, just before bed. It really helps to settle her in and get her ready for bed.

We bath our 10 month old every other day, but his skin gets very dry even with that so we use lots of lotion. If he didn't get so dirty, we'd probably wait a couple days in between.

I have a 3 yr old daughter and a 10 month old son, I bathe my kids every other night unless it was a day they just got real dirty. In the summer they tend to get more baths. I cohse to do every other day because my daughter has exzema.

My lil man gets a Bath every night, we use the bed time bath stuff and it helps him sleep as well as he loves the bath he is in the bathroom before you can get the tub full wanting in, we also use the bed time lotion on him. But We have had bath and bed everynight sence the night he came home from the hospital (the day after he was born) and he knows it bath and bed and now he just goes right from bath the bed and goes to sleep. I LOVE IT lol

My DD is 10 months old and I give her a bath twice a week, unless she has an "diaper elposion" or a "messy meal". During the winter I don't think she needs on every night because she doesn't get into many messes and I'm afraid her skin will get dry. My son is 4 and he gets a bath every other night or so. I know I get itchy dry skin and lotion doesn't always help, so why put my kidos through it if they don't have to be.

As with jacindar and gillian, I bath my son every night. My son does have a reflux problem and milk protein intolerant so is sick a lot and bcause of his special milk, his sick does smell awful. Its also part of a routine and also special mommy and baby time when we sing together. Its bath, bottle bed!

I bathe my 10 month old Archie every morning as he has slept all night in his nappy and it is usually quite full and not exactly *fresh* smelling. Occasionally he will have a second bath as he too is crawling and can get quite messy sometimes.

My 10 month old (will be on the 26th) hates bath time.... he cried like someone is killing him. I will bath him about 2 times a week unless he gets really dirty from eating something like ginger snap cookies.

Hi Michelle
I bath my 10 mth old every night without fail. Its part of his "wind-down" routine. If I miss his bath, he does not go straight to sleep at night!

Every other day or second day. If she has a diaper blowout then she goes right into the tub or if she seems like she needs one. She's loving puffs and juice right now and the 2 turn to a mushy mess so it's likely more if needed.

My 10 month old daughter gets a bath on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday nights. This is our routine and works for us.

My 10 month has to be given a bath every night. So he can sleep better and plus he feeds himself so more often than not its due to him being all dirty with more food in his hair than his mouth.

i bathe my 10 month old every morning, have been since he was 3 days old. people say it can dry him out but as long as you lotion him up soon after he'll be fine.

I bath my daughter everyother day or every 2nd day. She has really dry skin and the winter is not making it better... The nights that I don't bath her i make sure that i take a soapy washcloth and get her toes, hands, and behind her ears.. and a wet wash cloth with no soap on her face and i also make sure to wipe out her mouth and brush up those teethers!

in terms of regular baths, every other day. but since he's learning to feed himself cereal puffs, they'll sometimes trigger his gag reflex.. then "blech" bath time. sometimes 2 or 3x a day.

Again, like a lot of the other moms, I bathe my daughter every night. This happened upon us when she was a newborn. I was trying to establish a routine that she would associate with bedtime. We do the "bedtime bath" soap, get dressed and have a bottle in the same order with low lights every night.

Every night- have been since she was born! She loves her bath and is now taking swimming classes. She loves water! It's great for her bed time routine- bath, books, bottle, bed. She is a great baby and sleeps 12 hours at night! Maybe the bath calms her?!

Bella loves baths. She's been walking for two months and is an expert at getting messy. Some days she'll end up getting three bats and other days we can go three days without one. She has a ton of hair and I usually only wash it once a week. We also only use soap when she gets her hair washed or if we remember. Bathtime is usually just play time in our house.

every other day. he just doesn't get that dirty. If he gets food on his face, we use a baby wipe to get it off. We have to use the sensitive for his skin.

We do a quick sponge bath one night and a real bath the next. Our daughter had eczema so we were drying out her skin bathing every night but it is part of her bed time routine so we do sponge baths every 2nd night instead.

I bath Aimee-Louise every 2nd or 3rd day depending on whats gone on n the day. She is now up and walking around the furniture so she doesn't get dirty that often. Aimee loves having a shower with her daddy as he plays peak-a-boo with the water so she gets use to it running over her face :). Sometimes she gets a bath everyday and when she goes down to see nanna she gets a bath there too (nanns love to keep babies clean lol)

every couple of days - unless there is a massive poopy nappy or he is particularly stinky! With my first baby, I washed him everyday and he developed eczema because it dried his skin out too much.

I know, my little man LOVES his baths! He splashes and plays and it's relaxing and fun for him as well. Now, getting him dressed after the bath, that's a whole other ball park! I swear he would run around with no clothes on all the time if i'd let him!

I bathe my little guy everyday...only under certain circumstances do we let him go without a bath, we were out late and he was asleep when we got home etc. But I've heard it's good for their skin to bathe every other day.

i bath my 10 month old every night but then i have a 4 year old so its easy for me to put them both in together plus the bubby only has to hear the water running in the bathroom and shes straight in there, even if im only brushing my teeth! And shes been bathed pretty much everyday since she was born.

I bathe my son almost every night. Not that he needs it because we always play inside and I am somewhat obsessive about cleanliness but he really enjoys bath time. He has always loved getting a bath and sometimes we sit in there for 30 minutes. Its a great play time and then afterwards I give him a massage to wind him down and get him ready for bed. It works really well for us.

I don't do every day just for the fact that his skin gets super dry and too many baths really makes it worse. He loves them but it isn't a night time routine. Unless he makes a really nasty diaper all the way up his back then I throw him in the tub but its more like every other night. Esp since I get home late from work and sometimes we go out at night. Which he falls asleep early.

when my son was a new born i gave him 2 baths a day, one in the morning and one at night, since we live in Florida and it gets pretty hot here, he just seemed o sleep better that way, since we have been having colder weather lately i skip the morning bathbut he still lgets on every night, the water cools their body temp and calms them so they sleep better, plus i take a bath everyday so why shouldnt he?

In the summer we did bath everynight, just cuz its so hot and sticky but with it being winter now, we do every other night just so his poor skin doesn't dry out so bad. If I knew his skin wouldn't get so dry I'd do it every night. I just think its so icky to sit in pee and poop and not soak that off every night. The nights we don't do bath, I wash his face and diaper area up really, really good with a tiny bit of soap and water. Up to this point we haven't had any diaper rashes yet....Thank goodness.

i give Kaily a bath every night..ive been doing that since she was real small. Everyone told me i shouldn't bathe her so often, idk i think its personal preference though. But Kaily is a mess all the time haha, shes always getting into messy situations. So a bath every night is sooo needed :)

I try and bath my 10 month old son every night. Sometimes I will skip a night depending on what I am doing. He loves his bath time so I try and keep him happy by bathing him every night. I use the bedtime bath and the bedtime lotion as it helps him sleep better =)

i bathe my daughter twice every day - morning and evening. the evening bath is just before she goes to bed. She has good sleep after the bath. Also its a cue to her that its sleep time.

I have three sons and they all love to have a shower together, so Ayden (aprox. 10 1/2 mnths) has a shower every night at the moment as it is summer here in australia...... when it gets into winter maybe every second night depending on how grotty he gets!!!
