If he doesn't get one every other day at least, he starts to stink... But he fights it really bad, so sometimes I give up and he goes longer. :-/

Brady gets a bath every single night!  He loves them:)  Plus we give him sinus rinses every night too and those are done in the bathtub:)

My son likes the bath. Dh has taken over bath time since I had the baby, but he is still getting his bath every night.

I have 3 boys...they have taken a bath together since they were babies...they all want to take one everyday..so, I skip the night time bath most times(unless the go outside and get dirty afterschool)....but, we give them a bath every morning b4 school...it helps wake them up and needed b/c 2 out of 3 of them still pee the bed...so, it is necessary to make sure they don't smell like pee b4 we send them to school...lol

I try every other night unless they get stinky and need it in between. I still can't find the right bath equipment for Christopher. Holding him up and leaning over the tub is killer on my back and shoulders.

OMGosh, Nevaeh is a frog!!!! You put her in the bathtub---good luck getting her out!  I literally have to bribe her with food or watching spongebob to get her out.  I literally have to fill her bath 2 or 3 times with warm water just so she doesn't freeze.  I hate when Daddy says bathtime and he doesn't offer to do it. :) but that will change soon.  She absolutly loves water and i think she gets that from me! I was always swimming and bathing as a kid.
