We try to bathe her every day to keep her on her routine, but we don't wash her hair every bath, just every other day or so.

DD gets food in her hair at least one meal a day. She bathes as part of our bedtime routine.

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

I have a 1 yr old and a 2 yr old and they bathe once or twice a week although I wipe them down with a washcloth daily. They don't really get that dirty since I keep my floors clean and it's too cold out to play outside much. That may change a bit in the summer and then it may be every other day but I don't think they need to take baths very often. Plus my kids have dry skin so bathing very often isn't great for them. We tried to do it as a bedtime routine for DD but my kids get all riled up when they take baths Not good for right before you're gonna get them ready for bed.

Nearly every night. It's just part of the bedtime routine and so bedtime goes MUCH more smoothly when we stick to the routine! Plus, she's usually dirty - spilled food, grubby floors. And most of all, she LOVES taking a bath, so it's nice to always end the day on a happy note

My daughter, too!

She requests baths... she will take her shirt off (to admire her belly button ) and then rub on her chest and say "bath?" She loves baths... she has bath crayons and a water baby in there and some letters that stick to the wall.

I put moisturizing wash into the bath, so it doesn't dry her skin out.
