  • No. Every other day, unless they've been sweaty.

  • Usually every other day. In the summer we swim a lot, so maybe once every three days. My kids are currently 6 and 7. It was 2-3 times a week from ages 1-4ish.

  • So if you swim you don't give your child a bath?

  • Nope, twice a week. My kids have terrible eczema and any more than that and they break out in a bad rash.

  • On school/work nights, (Mon.-Thurs) yes. It's part of her nightly routine, and she knows that it's bed time shortly after bath. She also knows that we have school/work the next morning on those nights. Now on weekends, it depends upon how busy we are. If we're out somewhere late, she usually doesn't get a bath. But I never let her go more than a day without bathing.
