  • I have a 15 month old, and I give him a bath every night... It's part of his bed time routine. I usually give him a little lotion massage afterwards, so I'm not worried about dry skin.

  • usually everyday but sometimes im just way to worn down. lately its been 2-3 times a day since my 17 month old has really sloppy poops for some reason. he gets covered from his belly down to his feet!

  • I have a 2 year old and we bathe her whenever she is dirty, if she's not dirty she doesn't get a bath, so sometimes it's 3 times a day and sometimes it's twice a week - it all depends.

  • When she needs it. She's 2.5 years and she has eczema. I don't bathe her daily because that would totally dry her skin and make her scratch herself raw. I generally just do "wash ups" and she has a real bath and gets her hair conditioned twice a week.

  • I bathe my 5-yr-old every night before she goes to bed. It's part of her routine and she doesn't want to go to bed without having been bathed.
