How often are you bathing your little babies?


I am bathing Jacob every other day unless he has a diaper blow out or if he gets alot of milk on him.

Every other day he's starting to really love them though so I might start bathing him every day and just thoroughly wash him every other day- that's what I did with Chase bc he loved the bath too!

Every 2-3 days depending on how dirty she gets from pooping and spitting up. I wipe her down in between baths though so she doesn't start to stink.

Sometimes everyday sometimes every other day. Ive been trying to get a night time routine down to get him to sleep at night. I feel like a nice relaxing bath is part of that. He still cries sometimes during but is starting to have some times when he's chilled out and relaxed. Anyway the routine helps he's sleeping great. The night befor last he slept seven and a half hours straight.

Dang, maybe I'll start bathing her every night if that's the result!

About once a week. He doesn't get dirty and it will just dry out his skin.

OK, I'm really happy to hear that we're not the only ones who don't bathe the baby every day. I was starting to worry that maybe we were dirty hippies.

We do every other day to every 2-3 days, usually at least 2-4 times a week. Grant sweats a lot and gets smelly I wipe down his face/neck daily because he always gets breastmilk running down his face and it collects in his fat neck

He goes in the tub with DH or I every few days to get thouroughly clean and because he loves it and it relaxes him. If he gets dirty Ill give him a sponge bath sometimes

When I realized on her bath nights she would sleep extra long, I started them everyday. I scrub her head too so she doesn't get flakes. It works great. I just lotion her up to avoid dryness. So far, so good. She must have good skin like her brother.
