  • In the winter, every other night....usually we don't do much besides arts and crafts, games, books, ect around the house. But in the summer, every night....because we are all over the place...playground, beach, park, pool, ect.

  • My kids are 2 yr old and 1 yr old and I bathe them every 3rd day. My son has eczema, so this is per doctor's "orders." I also was told not to bathe them with soap unless they needed it. And I will say, they are clean, unstinky kids :D

  • When they were little tiny like under 6 months it was about once or twice a week. once they were crawling and actually getting dirty it was every other day. Now my son is five and it's every day!

  • Depends on the age, but with babies if you wash them too often it can remove their natural body oils. I wash my baby once a day. Usually at night time before bed to relax her. During the day i just use a wash cloth to wipe clean the mess that she has made with her food
