When they were newborn, maybe every 2-4 days, depending on how dirty they got and/or how many diaper blowouts they had. There were a lot of days where they just got wiped down with a wet washcloth. They also had eczema though, so frequent baths would just make that worse. Definitely not every day.

I bathe my son daily. I don't quite remember how I did it with dd since she is 7 lol. But yea, I bathe him every day to get ready for bed time and it works. He also likes it very much, he's always so quiet. :-)

I bathed my babies every day. In skin drying weather, I made the baths very quick, but everything got washed. :)

I believe when my kids were infants I bathed them once a week because they are babies & didn't need more than a wipe down daily (due to spit up & what not in the folds of their necks). I would use a diaper wipe or warm wash cloth for all that. I would also use Johnson's Nighttime baby lotion on them because it had lavendar in it which really did help soothe my babies. 

Once my babies became mobile (as in crawling & able to put things in their mouths) I started bathing more than once a week. My youngest is now 3 & gets a bath at least 3 times a week (depending on how dirty he got at daycare).

The twins get a bath every 2-3 days and a wipe down everyday. We also use lotion every day. So far so good with their skin staying moisturized.
