Re: How often do you bathe your DC?

they get a bath 5-6 times per week, but i almost never use soap on them.they splash in the water and get clean that way. i rinse their hair as needed, and it gets washed with soap about once a week, maybe even less often as that. they are clean, they don't stink or look grungy.

Re: How often do you bathe your DC?

Every other day, unless its summer time. I hate for sunscreen to just sit on her body all night plus chlorine water ugh. I wouldn't go more than every other day though. The humidity will make anyone sweat just walking outside sitting in a chair. I clean her like and how often I clean myself, makes sense I guess.

Re: How often do you bathe your DC?

My four year old gets a bath every night, my youngest gets one every other day he is only 12 months and just doesn't get that dirty yet. We also take family shwoers some mornings. If I take the baby in the shower with me he doesn't get to take a bubble bath with his big bubba that night. Some mornings when I am in a hurry the four year old and the baby take a shower with me. Some nights we all take a bath together.

Re: How often do you bathe your DC?

No one in my house goes to bed without a shower or bath.My kiddos play all day outside and by the end of the day are dirty and sweaty..or have been in the pool most of the day and need all of that washed off.
My little ones now 2 and 4 get in the shower with me and when I'm done finish with a bath and play time.
For us its a bath at least 365 times a year-some days its more like after finger painting which turns into body painting

Re: How often do you bathe your DC?

As summer is here. My little guy gets a bath almost every day. In the winter it was more like every other day. He needs his hair conditioned at least every other day because it is so dry.

Re: How often do you bathe your DC?

My 14 mo old gets a bath whenever I notice that she is dirty I wash her hands & face after each meal, and of course her diaper area. It just doesn't seem like the rest of her gets that dirty. Now that it's summer and she's outside more, I suspect she may get more.

My 10 & 8 yr old boys I seriously had to add showers to their calendar twice a week. Because we homeschool, they didn't really *need* to be clean for any particular day, but all too often I would notice them as we were heading out of the house and their hair was completely amuck.

My 5 yr old dd gets a bath about once a week.

So I guess it just depends on what they are up to. I'm too pooped at the end of the day to insist on daily baths, and my dh isn't really into that either. I had a girlfriend who's husband would give their girls their nightly bath - I thought that was so cool.

Each of my girls from my 12 year old to my 10 month old take 2 showers/baths a day.

I picked 3-4 but it all depends usually more like 2-3 times unless he ask than ill put him in just to play. During the winter its more like 1-2 times a week unless needed.

Everynight. It's been our routine since birth of DD2. The older ones bathe everynight as well. Sometimes twice a day. Hawaii is way to humid and sticky to get away w/not bathing once a day.
