How many times a week do you bath your toddler?

How many times a week do you give your toddler a bath? 4 days a week,3 days a week? I was giving my son a bath everyday and that was getting really tiring so I am thinking of doing it 5 days a week. Just wondering what you ladies do?

  • When i had only one child i gave my DSS a bath 6 nights a week. (sometimes less). Now that i will be raising my adopted brother (my mom died) i found that giving them both a bath everynight way too tiring. so ...i give each one a bath every other night. ...which i guess turns out to about 3 nights a week for each child becuase i always take one night a week off.

  • Nearly every night, because she loves it. We almost always give her the option (obviously not if she's particularly dirty), and she has only recently started opting for no bath/longer playtime, occasionally. I think 3-4 times a week is fine as long as you wash face and hands well every night.

  • My babies were bathed daily. Sometimes twice a day if they wanted to jump in the shower with either their dad or I which was all the time. Sometimes I would have 2 of them in there with me.

  • LOL Chrissy! Gotta love the shower invaders eh? Our pediatrician has always said how important bathing is on a daily basis after a certain age and during the warmer weather...... and well What's good for the goose is good for the gander or good for the gander good for the goslings? LOL I bathe daily so I bathe my children daily... I start bathing daily when they are mobile. :-)

  • every night unless I am too tired or I come back from an outing too late. Then I just give them a bath in the morning.
