How many times a week?

Do you give your children or have them take a bath? My boys take baths every other day because we have hard water; but am thinking of having my oldest start taking one every day--he sweats alot and has gym twice a week.

Also do they take them in the morning or before going to bed?

  • Every day. With dd she gets them about an hour before bedtime, but I only wash her hair every other day because otherwise it dries out her hair. My 10 yr old also everyday and washes his hair everyday otherwise it looks greasy. My 17 yr old takes them everyday, sometimes twice depending on his work out schedule.

  • Really it depends on my daughter. Right now she's on a kick of having one every day but when she isn't she'll have one every other day or even leave 2 days between. We just make sure she's washed up when she doesn't bathe.

    I'm sure you know, with hard water, make sure that you use lotion on everyone because it dries skin out.

  • every day

  • In the summer it is pretty much every day because they are so dirty from being outside or covered in chlorine from the pool. During the winter it can be anywhere from every other day to every 2 or 3 days. It really all depends on what we have done (if we painted that day) or what we have for dinner (spaghetti) and such. Usually they get baths at night before bed. Today though they all got baths in the morning because our friends are taking them out and they will most likely fall asleep on the way home.

  • Every other day in the winter as they get really dry skin and I even put in some baby oil in the water after I wash their hair.
    In the summer it depends. Sometimes twice a day, sometimes not at all if they have been in the pool right before bed.
