  • My 16 month old gets a bath every night. I can't put her to bed dirty. After pooping, eating, playing outside, drooling, etc, there's no way she doesn't need a daily wash-up!

  • My son also gets a bath every day... Lately he's been wanting to bathe himself, and gives me a bit of a hard time... So if he isn't very dirty, I'll just wash his hair and soap up a washcloth and let him wash his body. Yes, I know he can't get himself clean yet, but it makes him feel like a big boy (he's 2.5). So yes, he gets a bath every day, but every two-three days he pretty much just gets his hair washed...

  • My 2 year old and 4 year old bathe every day to every other day, depending on what we're doing. In the summer, they need a bath every day. In the winter, I let them go every other day to avoid really dry skin.

  • My daughter gets a bath every day. She has a helmet & it makes her head sweat. Before she got her helmet she got a bath every other day.

  • I was bathing my son every night, until he got really dry skin. I used the Aveeno baby lotion, and when that didn't seem to help, at his next check up, I asked the Dr. what to do. She said it wasn't good for his skin to give him a bath every night, and that every other night was best. I kinda struggled with the idea of that. So I tried it. I also got the Aveeno baby wash. After experimenting for about 2 weeks (bathing him every night vs. every other night) I found out that his skin got a lot better with the every other night baths instead of the every night ones. The only time he gets a bath every night, is if he gets really dirty, like playing outside in the dirt, or with a lot of other kids.
