Re: How often do you bathe your DC?

DD gets a bath 3-5 times a week. She gets soooo messy. She is a slob when she eats, and gets food in all her wrinkles, especially the ones at the wrist and under her neck. She also crawls all over and her knees and feet get almost black after a while. Its like no matter HOW much I mop, I cant get my floors clean enough!

I dont do a bath every night. It just dries out her skin. Plus her tolerance for the bath wears off after about 5 minutes (LOL).

Every other day or every single day. He likes to run around and gets super sweaty!

Re: How often do you bathe your DC?

In the winter, once a week (Saturday night). It's cold up here, and they don't really sweat much.

In the summer, every day. They spend every day outside making mud pies, digging in the dirt and sand, and making art with glue, chalk, markers, you name it.

And sometimes in the winter they do take baths as entertainment, not really as an excercise in cleanliness (like the times we have given them an entire can of shaving cream, just to have fun with in the tub . . . )

I have 3 who are the same size, so they all go in together . . .

Re: How often do you bathe your DC?

We do about twice a week - dd does get dirty, but we wipe her down and send her on her way. I wish she enjoyed a family shower - she is absolutly terrified of water being poured over her head. One day last winter she went from loving baths to hating them, and by hating them I mean hysterical shrieking and desperate attempts to throw herself out of the tub, scale the walls, crying so hard she yacked, etc. We've gotten her back to liking to play in the tub, but when it's time for her hair to be washed, it's on. We'll usually give her a bath when her hair starts to get ucky.

Re: How often do you bathe your DC?

Before it got hot, ds was getting a bath about 3 times a week (2 if I was lazy). Now that it's so hot, he gets one every day because he's SO sticky and clammy by the end of the day. I know that *I* can't sleep well like that, so I feel like it'll help him rest better too.
Actually, due to some poo "incidents," he's gotten 2 baths a day for the last 3 days.

Every night after dinner. DS makes SUCH a mess of himself during the day. Sometimes I think he goes out of his way to make himself filthy so he can guarantee himself a bath at the end of the night. He could sit in one for upwards of an hour and be perfectly happy splashing in the water.

Re: How often do you bathe your DC?

My older dd used to get a bath every single night as part of her bedtime routine. Now she could care less and I don't feel like fighting with her over washing her hair. So I put both kiddos in the bath together every 2-3 days.
Anna is in a mood lately to feed herself everything, so sometimes she needs an extra good wash-up after mealtime. Then I'll put her in the tub for a quick rinse!

Re: How often do you bathe your DC?

DS gets a bath when he wants usually once a week but can be more. The ladies only get a bath when absolutely nesscessary. They HATE bathing. They'll splash in the tub sometimes but they have to be in the right mood. They hate being washed in anyway in the tub and washing their hair is like torture. They get little sponge baths in between baths though.
