I was always worried about bathing too much in case babys skin dries. However, from about 4 months, i started to bathe my daughter every night as part of her routine and has worked wonders to pass her grizzles in the evening. Best thing ive ever found for her skin, olive oil! Fantastic and totally natural. Johnsons naturals moisturiser seems to be pretty good too.

I bath my 8 month old every other day. If he looks dirty or he's a sweaty guy you can always just sponge bath whenever. They really dont need their hair washed every day, though; i would say 3 or 4 times a week for that.

lotion lotion lotion even if u only bath ur kid a few times a week... but steer clear of johnsons bath wash and creams... i find the bath wash dries their skin out more and the cream doesnt do much but make em smell nice lol...

My son is 3 months old and i bathe him every other day. I agree as long as you use lotion afterwards then everyday or other day is fine. just remember they feel dirty just like you do so they will feel better the cleaner they are.

I have a 6 1/2 month old son & I just started bathing him every night. We used to do every other night, but now that he's getting around more & getting solid food all over himself lol, I thought that a nightly bath was necessary for him. And he LOVES bath time too. :)

I give my son a bath every night as part of his bedtime routine. Only occasionally do we skip it, if we are out at a family members for dinner etc.

Everyday. My daughter is crawling and getting into everything now and especially eating she needs a bath everyday. But i have also been bathing her everyday since i had her. She is 9 months now.

I give my 4 month old daughter a bath every night (we skip a night every once awhile) and use lotion. Mostly she just enjoys the bath and it has become part of her nighttime routine.

Well my daughter is 2 but as long as their skin doesn't look dry I would say every day or every other day. It just depends on how active they are and how dirty they get. As long as you lotion them up when they are done it should be all good.
