Re: [Poll] How often do you bathe your baby?

We did EC and DD was almost never dirty. I still only give her a full bath once a week, maybe. I never use shampoo or baby wash, just water. She has beautiful skin and has never had a rash.

also, she has curly hair, but I still don't shampoo it. It gets tangled, but I just wet it and comb it a bit. I just find shampoo generally unnecessary

my baby is 4 months old and i use the tub once or twice a week.
that's mostly because he is exclusively breastfed and so he only poops once a week sorry if that is TMI

Re: [Poll] How often do you bathe your baby?

Every other day before mobile. We used shampoo/body wash each time. We avoid soaps with SLS, parabens, and phtalates (think I butchered that spelling!), so no issues with dryness. Now that he's mobile, he gets a bath daily. He LOVES his bath.

Daily. We only use soap and shampoo every two to three days though. DS loves bath time and it's a part of his night routine.

I wash DS every night. He enjoys it & it takes up some time in the evening. He's good & awake after that for a bit, which makes him ready for bed when I want to go to sleep! I use soap on his face, neck, hands, bottom, and feet each day. About once a week I do the whole body. I only use shampoo once every week and a half or so.

Re: [Poll] How often do you bathe your baby?

We do a daily bath, but it is mostly a fun/wind down activity with DH before bed. We generally only use soap or shampoo once a week unless they are dirty enough to warrant it like painting all over their bodies, rolling in mud, stuck food in hair, etc.

I know that my kiddos do not need a bath daily, and will skip it depending on circumstances. Right now it is just part of the bedtime routine.

Re: [Poll] How often do you bathe your baby?

For those of you who bathe their LO as part of a bedtime routine, how old were they when you started that?
