  • I always did it when my now grown daughters where infants. I now have a 3 year old that I don't always bath every single day. My grown daughter baths her 3 year old only every few days. I think her doctor told her that but she lives in a different climate than I. I always felt like it was part of the "bedtime" ritual that helps little ones rest better...... I think it is mostly a personal preference.

  • daily wipe-downs. baths are reserved for doctors appointments and when we're expecting visitors.

  • I do daily. Its now part of his bedtime routine and without it, he has a hard time sleeping.
