Who gives the kids baths?
Curious to see how "normal" my family is. How often does your SO give the kids baths?

I usually give baths while DH does the dishes

I do most of the baths in the house. DH works late so it's just easier that way.

I take LO in the bath with me. I know he doesn't need it but some how we have gotten into the habit of having one every night. It's nice "us" time though.

Re: Who gives the kids baths?
I handle 99.9% of the bathtimes in our house (the .1% would be if I was hospitalized AND my inlaws were not available for some reason). DH used to give DD all her baths when I was pregnant with our second, but I sort of took over and it's been like that ever since.

DH handles every single bath, then hands him to me for diapering, pjs, and breast milk. :) It's their together time, and works out great!

Our nightly routine is that one of does the dishes and cleans the kitchen after dinner, and one is on bathtime. I let DH choose. It's usually about equal.

Ugh so far I'm not liking the results. My son is 23 months old...and DH has NEVER EVER given him a bath. Or brushed his teeth. I complain, but it doesn't make a difference. Sometimes I just want to strangle him to help me!!

DH does baths and I clean the kitchen. If he works late I skip my night time shower and shower with ds in the am. I brush his teeth in the am and on the nights dh works late. I assume he brushes DS's teeth after bath time but I've never asked. :brush:
