Bath Time

I'm just curious. Besides the obvious; they fall down in dirt or have been to the park...what times do you usually give your child a bath? How often?

I do every other day, especially if she isn't playing outside at all. If she gets messy I obviously don't mind making it a daily thing.

Usually every other day unless they are playing a sport that day. My middle ds suffers from eczema and giving him a bath every day can actually make it worse.

My daughter had a little as a baby, so we just were told to do every other day and we haven't changed that.

If you research it anyways, there is no need for them to have a bath more often than this unless they play a sport or they are getting excessively sweaty. It can actually cause dry skin and a dry scalp.

Every other day unless they played outside or had practice then it is more frequent. During the summer it is every night though.

Same with mine. He always has streaks of dirt down his face and on his shins. Last week he and his friends were practising skidding into base like a baseball player. He was filthy and his socks were solid brown.
