  • my son is 7mos, but since he was a newborn, he's gotten a bath every night--it's a part of his bedtime routine..and he loves them!

  • Bath time is a very special time for my son conner. Bath time ment that Daddy was home from work. My husband works long days but he is always home in time to give conner a bath and create a rutine that they both looked forward too.

  • Once or twice a week. I wipe her down daily, but she only gets an actual bath 1-2 times a week. She has eczema and this helps keep her skin from drying out too much.

  • My son has eczema, but he still gets a bath daily. It's part of his bedtime routine. I don't think ezcema is a good excuse for only giving a bath once or twice a week. I was told giving a bath every day is perfectly fine as long as the water isn't too hot. You should also let them play and then bathe them with mild soap so they are not sitting in the soap. Pat the baby dry, don'r rub and liberally apply moisturizer. My son rarely has bad breakouts anymore. Very mild, if anything at all.

  • My son is 5months old and he gets a bath every other evening before bed. Unless he has spit up a lot and then he gets one everynight
