How often do your kids bathe honestly...

Posted by   + Show Post
I was having a conversation with a couple of mom friends and both said.....we try but the kids don't bathe daily. One said it had been 3 days.

I was shocked. Now don't get me wrong we have gotten home super late before and of them were sleep but as soon as morning hit they took a shower.

2-3 x’s a week unless they’re playing sports then it’s everyday after practice. Daily showering stripes the skin of it’s natural oils and healthy bacteria.

You are so wrong as long as you wash in between baths or showers. As an adult I don't take a shower or bathe every day because I have eczema and skin issues and so do my children, hell you would be a appalled if I told you I wash my hair once every 10 days and I don't stink surprise. Now in the summertime do my children bathe and take showers almost every day yes because it's hot and sweaty but in the winter time they would be absolutely so miserable with cracked skin and bleeding scan if I made them take a shower every day. PS my doctor in their doctor absolutely agrees with me.

Quoting Anonymous 16: Bathing two or three times a week isn't enough for a girl your daughter's age.

Quoting Kiwismommy19: Every 2-3 days. Daily isn't necessary. And she's not at that b.o. overpowering deodorant stage of puberty.

2-3 times a week unless needed. my kids suffer awful skin issues like eczema, doctor says don't bathe too much.

My kids get eczema and the peds said 3-4 days is fine for them, and as long as they aren't stinky or itchy, then spot cleaning does the trick.  If your kids can handle the everyday, then fine.  My kids would be bathing in lotion and crying about the itchies if I tried that.

there have been times when they were really little that it had been 3-4 days if we didn't go anywhere and they didn't get sweaty or messy, etc. but now that they are a little older, it's every other day at least. if they get sweaty, it's every day.
