I have never given my 3 month old a bath!

  When our son was first born we decide that since I was ebf him his father would bond during bath/lotion time so they could still have skin to skin etc. He just turned 3 months on the first and daddy is still the only one who bathes him! I love that they have a special bonding time, and at this point I think I'd be terrified if I had to do it! 

Any one else s/o have a special thing that only they do with your LO?

That's what we did with dd as well. She is a daddy's girl and he has taken over the night time routine.

No, my husband and I share all responsibilities. I breastfeed, but also pump so he can still feed them.

no. my husband was always great about doing whatever needed to be done, getting up at night, bathing, changing diapers, etc... but there was never anything that only he did with them.

Since I was put on bedrest with my second, DH has given DD a bath. I tried to give her a bath after I healed but aparently I dont do it right. I am not a good enough bath giver so now my DH has to do it.

My hubby gives DS his bath too.  I used to do it when DS was a newborn, but hubby has been doing it ever since he was 3 mos old.

No. I gave our son baths because DH was scared of giving him baths, which I totally understand. But, we did baths in a tub in the kitchen on the counter top so I could be right there and not dipped all the way over in a tub. We breastfed for two years so his bonding time with our son was when he needed to be soothed and he would also dress him.

Now, at 3 1/2 he does all bath time and pj time and watches him while he brushes his teeth. He has been doing this for the past year and that is "their time".

Nope we did everything together. I formula fed anyway so he was able to feed as well.
