When you bathe your Jan '10 kiddo, do you always scrub them down with soap and water? Just water? Just let them hang out in the water and hope they get clean? Washcloths? Hands? Pouf? Sponge? How often are you bathing them nowadays? Washing their hair?

I let her soak/play for a while, then do a quick scrub with soap & a pouf, and then wash hair. We usually do baths every other day, unless she's gotten messy/dirty/sweaty. In the summer it's more likely to be every day, and in the winter, every other day.

Eli gets baths about twice a week or if he's dirty. Because he's not getting baths everyday he gets a full shampoo, soap and scrub down with a washcloth.

She gets a bath every night before bed. I shampoo her hair first then wash her body with soap and a pouf (never knew they were called that!).

Major gets a bath 6 nights a week. Whoever bathes him (me or DH) washes him with a washcloth and washes his hair.

Most nights unless he is super cranky. I let him have a soak while he plays for a bit then he gets a good scrub down. I wash his hair around twice a week..... if he lets me.

Trey probably averages about 6 baths a week.

I always run a bubble bath & i just let him play for as long as he wants. Every other bath, i'll wash his hair and scrub him down with soap & a wash cloth. I usually do it right when he gets in the tub, to get it out of the way, and then i'll just let him play.

Wellllll....he gets a bath maybe 2-3 times a week with bubbles. I wash his hair and hope the bubbles clean the rest.
He plays with his toys in the tub & occasionally Nathan takes a bath with him.

In the summer they bathe less. They swim every day so I figure that's good enough........

When she takes baths I let her soak and play then I srub her with a washcloth and wash her hair, most days she hops in the shower with me because she think I'm not allowed to shower alone and I scrub her really good with a washcloth in there and wash her hair but I don't feel like she gets as clean in the shower as she does in a bath.

Everyone gets a shower. If it's just Audrey, we lather her up/scrub her down with hands and soap, wash her hair, rinse her off and then if she wants to play for a bit, she can. When we have all 3, its in and out. We have it down to a science....They get in, 1 by 1 and I scrub while DH controls the shower head and then they get out and dry off/put robes on. Showers are about ever night on average.

We do showers, I let her get wet & play a little then I let her wash herself, and I'll quickly scrub her to make sure she's clean. We condition the back of her hair because it gets tangled easily & shampoo her hair every couple of days. She gets a shower every day pretty much..but sometimes we skip a day.

Soap and a loofah. B gets a bath 2 or 3 times a week. And I only wash her hair every two weeks...I condition it every day.
What I usually do is sit in the hallway outside of the bathroom and fold/put clothes on hangers so she plays for 30-45 minutes while I do that.

He gets a bath most nights before bed, or he had a shower with me. He gets washed with soap using a washcloth and gets his hair shaped shampoo'd

He gets a bath 2-3 times a week. I'm trying to get it up more, but it's tough sometimes. I'll wash his hair and scrub him down with a washcloth, then let him play for a bit.

We share a shower every day. Sometimes I just let him be rinsed off but I usually soap him up, hair and body.

I bathe them every other day, unless they are really dirty. I wash their hair and body then let them play, then do a rinse when they are done.

Winter is a bath every other day. Summer is every day.

Always wash his hair and scrub with a washcloth a liquid soap.
After he's clean, I let him play for a while in the tub

Is anyone else still using baby soap on their LO's?
I still use J&J's lavender baby soap for both kids. Love the smell and I can use it as soap and shampoo.
