Honestly, how often do you bathe your kids?

My kiddos are old enough to take care of their bath and showers, but I make sure it happens at least once a day.  So, I'm talking to a friend the other day and she tells me she only bathes her kids about once every 2 weeks.  I was like WHAT!!??!!  Are you kidding me? Where in the world do you get the idea to only bathe them twice a month!!!!  Her kids are 9,4,3, and 1 so she does have her hands full, but really!!!(*shudder*).

Are you sure she wasn't joking? I sometimes joke that I just hose my kids down outside once in awhile, but in reality they shower every night.

My boys are 5 years and 2 years, and to be honest they get a bath maybe twice a week.  Sometimes more if they ask for it.  My oldest is dealing with some terrible eczema (like cover his body type) due to the weather, and my youngest has patches, but not as bad.  Frequent washing for them would just make the problem worse.

The baby gets a bath every other day or every day depending on how messy she eats. My 4 year old takes one every other day because washing her hair every day made it start falling out.

My dd is 6 and takes a bath every other day. Shell take them daily if needed in the summer since she spends so much time outside getting sweaty.

 I put my 14mo old in the tub every night, but only soap him up every 2-3 days.

DS11 showers 4 times a week. DS4 gets a shower/bath 3-5 times a week (less, like 3 times, in the winter since he's not outside getting dirty).
