  • My 22 month old baths every other day unless he gets really dirty or is having a hard time falling asleep. Some days he baths more than once, it just depends. My 5, 7 and 8 year olds bath every other day. My 10 year old baths daily because he'll stink if he doesn't, lol.

  • I have always bathed them everyday. Maybe in the first two weeks of life i only did every other day because of the belly button but they still atleast got sponge baths. My kids are 3 (almost 4), 8, 15, 16 & 19. Obviously the older kids bath themselves LOL but I do MAKE them take one everyday.

  • I used to bathe my oldest every day. The doc told me to stop! It is really bad on her skin. Doc told me no more than 2 times a week and no soap other than shampoo for hair until they are about 2 then every other day. My oldest is now 7 and she bathes daily.

  • YES ! my son is 3 and he gets DIRTY! lol... i also teach and cannot stand to see kids with dirty fingernails... etc... the stinky ones always have less friends, it also helps my son to go to bed. i like a hot bath to relax before bed too.. so yes everyday unless something out of the ordinary happens like when we went to a hockey game and got home really late and he just was asleep in the car and moved into bed....

  • I have four and because they have the skin that I do I do not bathe them every day. We do once a week. I have not had a problem with it yet. My oldest decided a while back that she would bathe every day but that stopped when her skin started to itch. My kids are still clean. If they get messy from eating or what ever then we give them an extra bath.

  • I bathe my son a couple times a week or as needed - he just doesn't get that dirty, especially in the wintertime. If he has an accident, then he gets a bath, but I never found a good reason for bathing him every day.
