  • When mine was 6.5 mo I probably washed her hair every other day or every 3 days. Now I try every day but we don't always get in the bath every day. (She's 2.5 yrs now!) If she has a super "dirty" day like a day at the park, she DEFINITELY gets a bath, but if we just hang out at the house all day I don't see a super huge need... it's not really part of our bedtime routine anymore since Daddy works weird hours and the only time he gets to see her now is after dinner, when we'd normally be doing her bedtime bath. I don't want to take that time away from them so I try to get her to get in the bath with me in the morning, but she's usualy revved up to play when she wakes up & doesn't want to.

  • I washed my children's hair with every bath. Which was every other day when they were newborns.

  • We did it about every 2-3 days. I think the most common reason it would get so dirty was because I was so busy playing with it! =)

  • i don't wash mine dd's hair often. just usually when it gets dirty or once a week. she don't really do much to get her hair dirty unless she gets food in it. oh mine youngest is 15 months.

  • We have always washed my son's hair everyday since he was a couple of weeks old. (well until he was 1 year we just washed his bald little head, but he has a bath every night)
