Maddie LOVES bath time and asks to take a bath as soon as we get home. She loves her stacking cups and squeezy toys the most. To make it fun we use Mr Bubble for "Super bubbles!" and bath foam which she loves rubbing all over herself, or making fun shapes out of it. We do baths daily usually during the summer. DH and I alternate nights. I'm still using baby shampoo but phasing out the baby wash stuff, she can use what we use - dove, aveeno, or whatever we have for sensitive skin.
How does your toddler like bath time?He loves bath time and will want PReston in the bath with him too.
What are his/her favorite bath toys? bowls and cups and running water. I normally turn it off but it ends up in a tantrum unless I can distract him. Sometimes we wash and out but other times he will find other toys to play with.
What do you do to make it fun for him/her?
running water for a little bit, bubbles and his toys... oh his brother. Aiden loves to fill a cup up with water and pour it on Preston head.
How often do you give baths?
I'm not home in the evenings so I'm unsure when Ryan gives him one. I'll be home this weekend so he will get a few. I don't normally do them everyday unless it is called for.
Are you still using "baby" soaps and shampoo's? Yes, I don't plan to change it for a while.
How does your toddler like bath time? Loves it! She loves swimming in the tub on her belly
What are his/her favorite bath toys? stacking cups
What do you do to make it fun for him/her? water is enough for that kid
How often do you give baths? Every 2-3 nights in the winter, but almost every night in the summer because of sweat, sunscreen, etc. though I don't wash her hair every night.
Are you still using "baby" soaps and shampoo's? Yes, I use the GAIA stuff, I like it. It's paraben free, among other things, and leaves her hair really soft. It seems pricey for a bottle but it lasts a loooooong time.

How does your toddler like bath time? She used to love it. Now she hates it. I'm not sure what changed. Usually she fights it but every once and a while, she will request it.
What are his/her favorite bath toys? Bubbles! And random cups and tupperware that she can fill and dump. I'd like to get her a few new toys to make bath time fun again.
What do you do to make it fun for him/her? Well, until lately it hasn't been an issue. She has always been a water baby. Sometimes I'll let her take a shower with me and she thinks that is special. The bubbles often win her over. Or splashing in the tub.
How often do you give baths? Every other day.
Are you still using "baby" soaps and shampoo's? Yes. At the very least, I'm sure we'll use the baby shampoos for a very long time. She refuses to look up while we wash her hair and then cries when it gets in her eyes.
