  • My 2 year old has a shower or bath every night, unless we're too tired then usually he has one the next morning.

  • Mommy of 2 i have a 1 1/2 year old and a 6 month old. I give my older son a bath every other day, and my daughter as well, if they don't stink! in the summer time sometimes it has to be once every day. I've also helped raise a 12 year old that is my friends daughter from age 5 on we gave her a bath every night because of how much oil her skin produced, so it all depends on the smell of you kid, does there hair look greasy ? But that's how we worked it good luck!

  • Every night. My 10yr old (boy) is getting BO and I don't want him to be "that" kid at school who stinks. My daughter (3 in a couple weeks) gets a shower everynight with Daddy. She is a total whirlwind of energy and manages to get totally filthy.

    THe only exception is Saturday night. I prefer the kids to shower Sunday morning before going to church, so they get double showers on Sunday.
