As a kid I always had a bath once a week, or a shower when I was older. When I went through puberty my mom said twice a week, or every other day or so was good.
With my son I usually bathe him once a week, sometimes a bit more, every 6-7 days. I have done this since he was born. I usually bathe him in the shower with me.
Same with my new baby girl, once a week at the most because she has sensitive skin and it gets irritated easily.
I never use lotion on myself, never use it on my son, or daughter. Our skin doesn't get dry because we don't bathe every night!
My dr even said once a week baths were best for preventing eczema.
But everywhere here I see moms saying to bathe every day, some say every other, some say twice a day!I always say if you need to use lotion you are taking too many baths.
