How Often Should Children Bathe

Squeaky Clean: How Often Does Your Child Bathe?

A quick dip in the tub for a rub a dub dub! Some parents have their children take a bath on a nightly basis and others let the grime build until washing it off is the only option. So come clean, how often do your kiddos soak?

Unlike everyone else who posted, my child gets a bath/shower daily. My 13 month old is just getting into the semi-solid food phase and loves trying to eat by himself. This leads to a VERY messy meals so I have to give him a quick bath/shower. And anyways, I want to make sure his diaper area is completely clean since I'm never sure if I clean up his poops very well. =P

We give our two year old daughter a bath every evening as it's part of her bedtime routine. But we only use soap about two or three times a week (unless she has been outside and really dirty on a day we wouldn't normally use soap) and wash her hair probably once or twice at the most.

My 2 year old gets a bath every day, but we don't use soaps on her skin or hair. I wash her hair every week or so, and rinse it out each night. Of course, like everyone else, if she gets super dirty, that gets changed up a bit. My 8 month old gets a bath every 2-3 days, and I pretty much never use soap on his hair, it rinses out clean and fluffy without extra products.

my 2 girls 5 and 7 get baths on Sunday Tuesday Thursday in the winter and in spring and summer it all depends on how dirty and sweaty they get

My son also bathes every other day. It strips your skin and hair of natural oils to bathe every day. I would do it less than I do, but he's a 5 year old boy, and he gets sweaty! BTW, that is such a sweet picture! Always awesome to see a big strong man look so happy with a baby!
