Who gives the kids baths?

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

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.

Re: Who gives the kids baths?

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!!

Re: Who gives the kids baths?

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:
