How often do you bathe your baby?

I think we bathe her maybe once a week. Sooner if she's had a massive spit up or poop. I think I am in the minority on this. My thinking is that she doesn't get very dirty, so there's no sense in rubbing soap all over her.

I have the same view. We do spot-cleaning pretty much every day (getting the cheese out from her neck rolls and behind her knees, etc.), but as far as full-on baths, um... Yeah, let's just say there haven't been very many and leave it at that.

Yeah we're at about once or twice per week. We spot clean her all the time.

But if she's had a spit-up/poop issue, we'll do a bath then.

We do about 4, but mainly cause she likes water, and sometimes we'll do baths just to get her to calm at night. I only wash her with soap twice a week, and mainly cause she spits up so much that I'm really just washing off the puke smell. UGH!

We are at about once a week too... more if there is a poop or puke incident, but those seem to be slowing down now that she is eating a few solids.

Almost daily but don't always use soap. She loves the water and I use a natural soap with frankincense and myrrh that makes her skin really smooth and soft

Everyday since she's out and about during the day, gets rice cereal in the folds of her neck and the dog has taken to licking her legs...

We're using Aveeno - but once done I'm probably gonna change her soap to cetaphil.

Every night as part of his nigh time routine. He loves his baths and I love the fresh baby smell!
