How often do your kids bathe?

 We took our 6mo dd to her check up the other day and I asked about her eczema.  The doctor says the best treatment is keeping the skin moisturized.  He the proceeds to tell us that "wash day" is on Saturday's in his house and that babies up to 3 yo can go without baths for a month. 

But what about the spitup that pools in their necks or the poop that has been on their backs?  Surely a baby wipe won't get that kind of bacteria off.

So what say you?  How often do your kids bathe?

I have a preteen boy: every damn day or he stinks like an assorted sub.

My daughter everyday too but she washes her hair every other day or she gets dry scalp.

Usually daily, but DS (2) has had really dry skin lately, so I'm trying to cut back on him. DD is 3 and will stink if she doesn't bathe daily.

My 8yo showers every other day and my 10wk old takes a bath every other day, sometimes every two days.

My kids in the winter no more than twice a week because of their dry skin.  A baby wipe or damp wash cloth to wash private areas and neck face is all they need.

My 4 year old gets her bath 2/3 times a week. When she was a baby it was everyday.

5 yo: mon, wed, Fri and a bath on the weekends (extra if he does something dirty)

11 yo: sun, tue, Thurs (not sure if he showers during the weekend at his moms). If he wrestles on his non shower days, he showers then, too.

13 yo: every morning

16 yo: every night
