How often do you bathe your kids who need help washing up?

We bathe our kids once every other day.  Of course if they do have an extra dirty day we clean them.

  • I just asked a question similar to this the other day. My DD is only 6 months (TODAY!), and I just started bathing her every other day.

  • My kids get baths once every other day. If we wash them every day, their eczema flares up and we have to coat them down with a lot of their prescribed creme. The only time I wash them 2 days in a row, is if it's the summer time and they get dirty beyond belief LOL

  • My boys are 2 and 3 and 99% of the time they have had a bath every single day since they were about 6 months old. I think it really depends on the age, how dirty the get during the day and if the bath provides an important role to your bedtime routine.

  • dd's are 2 & 1....since it's still cold weather, we've been cooped up in the house, so bath time is every other night. In the warmer days it's usually every day since we're outside doing activities.

  • I have a 17 months old and a 3 years old and I bath them every day, it's part of their routine and I wouldn't go without a daily shower, so I don't like to put them at bed dirty either.

  • I'd bathe them twice everyday.

  • I bathe my daughter every night! I let her do her thing for about an hour and then I go in and wash her up.
