  • My kid gets one everyday. Its apart of his nightly routine if he doesn't get one he doesn't sleep.

  • Almost everyday before bed unless for some reason we were out and it got too late which almost never happens but it has happened a few times.

  • My kids (13 months, 8, 9, and 12) all take a bath/shower nightly, but they went through a period when they were around 6-8 where they would bathe every other night and as long as they hadn't been playing outside or sweaty it wasn't a problem

  • Every night... it's part of his bed time routine, it relaxes him.

  • My kids are 4 and 2 and they take a bath probably 5-6 times per week at least.

  • Every 2-3 days. My kids all have keratosis pilaris and eczema, and the water irritates it. Their pediatrician said showers every 2-3 days with Aveeno soaps, so that's what they get :-) unless they are really dirty or sweaty then its a short shower when needed.
