  • Usually every night. He doesn't NEED it every night but it's part of the bedtime routine, plus I just love when he's fresh and clean and in fuzzy jammies lol. Sometimes if we're lazy on the weekends (like tonight) we'll skip a day and he just gets wiped up and teeth brushed.

  • Every night, with actual washing every other night. He enjoys his bath time, it's part of our routine, and it's a way I can check for anything unusual, like a patch of eczema or a bug bite that needs attention.

  • My DD gets one every other day unless she has been sweating. When she starts school then she will start to get one every night

  • I bathe my 2.5 year old 6 times per week...since she poops almost everyday. If there is a day that she doesn't poop, and she's not too filthy, I'll just give her a quick wash-up before bed.

  • every night, but there are the occasions when you get home late and you go from car to bed, or your just having fun and stay up late and skip it, but usually when they skip it they jump in the shower with me in the morning, it all depends, but there are nights when i bathe and wash but dont wash hair, like on cold winter nights and i know they werent all sweaty. i think you know your child better than anyone and as long as you are happy with what you are doing and feel like its the right thing then keep doing what you are doing. also my son likes to take baths so he asks constantly its a chore to get him to wait until later, so i guess it depends on your child too
