  • It depends on how dirty they get during the day, but every other day for the most part. In the summer it is more like every day. Winter every other day. If they don't get a bath before bed, we do a clean up routine where I wipe them down. "Spit Bath".

  • Every 2-3 days, with added baths if they do something to get dirty. One has super dry skin, the other has eczema, so bathing too often just exacerbates their conditions.

  • I would bathe them twice a day.

  • We give baths every evening after supper and before bedtime, it helps them snooze better :)

  • Bare minimum - school nights. So for the oldest 2, no less than 5 times a week (M-F), for the 3rd, no less than 3 times, for the youngest, no less than 2 times. Frequently they're bathed again on Saturday. Very very rarely on Sundays. In the summer it's daily though, unless we stay inside all day Sunday.

  • Every night before bed, and sometimes in the morning if he says he wants to take one.

  • We take showers with the baby every day. I make my older kids take them at least every other day.
