Re: How often do you give your 1-2 year old a bath?

It all depends lol. DS not only sweats a lot but then drools in his sleep too so there are some mornings where he wakes up with his pillow and head soaked from drool...kinda gross really. So if he's like that when he wakes up he gets a bath every day....if he doesnt then it's only every other day when we bathe the older 2

2x per week dd gets an actual bath in the tub unless really dirty. However, every night she gets cleaned up with a wet washcloth and then gets a massage with oil. Her skin is great even in the winter.

Every 3rd or 4th day unless she gets into something really messy. DD's got terrible eczema this time of year, and I find she dries out too much if I bathe her too often. So infrequent, short lukewarm baths, from which she immediately gets oiled up after, patted dry and then covered in good lotion.

DS is 18 months and gets into the tub everynight. I only wash his hair every other night and sometimes I don't wash his body but most of the time i do wash his body.

Re: How often do you give your 1-2 year old a bath?

I would love to make it a part of the routine but his skin will not take it. Summer it's 2x a week and winter 1x unless he needs more. Of course this summer with him getting into everything I'm sure we will be bumping up the baths.

DD gets a bath every night before bed (and has since she was really little). It's part of our bedtime routine that signals for her to wind down.

Re: How often do you give your 1-2 year old a bath?

It has always been part of our routine with the foster kiddos so whether they're 2 months old or 4 years old, they get a bath/shower every day There are obviously exceptions like if we're out really late one night or the lo has bad eczema.. They LOOOVEE their tub time though

Basically everyday. It's part of our bedtime routine and she's a pretty routine kid. Occasionally, if we are out late and already thrown off, I just skip it to get her to bed quicker.

A couple times a week. It just depends on how dirty she is and what we've been doing.
