  • My son (he's 3) has gotten a bath everyday of his life. But we don't always use soap. A bath (and when he was little a lotion massage) has always been part of our night-night routine.

  • Every other night unless he gets messy, all my kids have super dry skin thanks to daddy lol and giving them a bath more than every other night drys their skin and gives my girls bad dandruff.

  • As an infant, every other day. Wipe downs in between on the little chubby cracks! LOL!

  • I give my 8mths old bath and massage evryday by 11am its my daily routine and keep on putting lotion on his skin as it gets dry and whenever i change diaper i make it a point to wipe him dry and apply lotion so he never gets rashes.

  • everyday

  • Okay, I'll be the honest one and say only a couple days a week. It depends on how old they are. As they get older you will do it more often. Sometimes they have accidents or get food in their hair etc. Plus when they start to get older I think they start to smell more, so you do it more often. Just my opinion and I don't mean to offend but I think everyday is a bit much.

  • My son is 7 months and I bathe him every other day or every 3 days. They don't really get that dirty and I always clean his diaper area really good. I think over-washing babies is bad it messes with their skin.
