I give my little guy a sponge bath every morning. I start with just water on his face to freshen him up. I will use a tiny bit of soap and water on his hair. I finish up with soap and water on his neck and groin/rear end. That's it!

Only twice a week. With the heater running it dries out all of us so bad that doing it daily doesnt make sense.

I had been doing it every 3 days like the pediatrician told me, but I might start doing it more frequently. Every other day or even a quick bath every day once her dry skin clears up. I just love a fresh and clean baby! She is going through her acne stage right now so I like to clean up her face daily with a wet cotton ball.

Every day with me in my bath and she LOOOOVES it. She goes into a bath coma and stays in it for quite a while after. It is so calming to her.

Once or twice a week for Philip. He has very dry skin too. I love to slather him in creamy baby oil every day though.

once a week. it's freezing and dry here. so there's no need to do it more than that. Besides, she doesn't get all that dirty anyway . Any milk that gets spit up and gets in her neck folds gets cleaned daily so she's good!

It's so cold and dry here, plus her skin is super dry, so usually about once every 4-5 days. But we use wipes on any areas that are dirty in between baths, so she's good.
