  • My DD is 15 months old and there have been times when she has had to have 2 baths a day, most of the time if we are going somewhere I will give her a bath before we go and she almost always ends up covered in food after she eats so I give her another one before bed

  • I would bath her as many times as she needed, but unless she got totally gross we would just bath her nightly once she was 3 months old. I was told once a week for the first month then twice a week to 3 times a week until 3 months so I did not dry out her skin.

  • No, that seems alittle too much for a baby; unless they are outside playing. Most of the time with my little ones I would wipe them down with a warm cloth or baby wipes to keep hands and face clean

  • I try to bathe my son everyday during the week because he goes to daycare. But occassionally we skip a day (if he isn't that dirty). I'm sure that is about to change soon because he is becoming much more mobile!
